Dexter London, 1. Aventurier Professionnel is a French comic album from 2000 (or. ed. (c) Dragaud Lombard), by Sergio García and Léo. It is set in a fictional earth-like world.
This is clearly not intended to be Earth as we know it, as shown geography and toponomy implies (as well as parts of its anthropology), but on the other hand quite much like our real world in much anything else — cars, clothes, social behaviour, and even cultural items such as some anthroponyms and toponyms (there's a Zambeze river with a Port Moresby city in its mouth...).

In an airport scene a flag is visible in two frames (pages 11 and 14 of the portuguese edition, ISBN:972-8718-32-2), a ~2:3 horizontal triband of red-yellow-purple. This is supposedly the flag of Lingland, one of the main countries described — though it could also be the city flag of the capital Sterlisset, though I wouldn't bet on it.
