The chairman of the government was Li Jishen, Eugene Chen was foreign minister, Jiang Guangnai was finance minister, and Cai Tingkai was military head and governor of Fujian Province. A flag of red over blue with a yellow star was used and the Chinese era name of the new state was "Republic of China" with its founding being year one.
From "The CCP and the Fujian Rebellion":
On 20 November an assembly of provisional representatives declared the People's Revolutionary Government -- formally established two days later with Li Jishen at the top; a new flag was unfurled, a new calendar introduced and the removal of Sun Yat-sen's portraits from official buildings ordered.
and from mutantpalm.org:
The Fujian People's Government was a collection of disillusioned Republican in truce with Communist rebels. They did manage to have a flag.
