In the Indonesian Army Museum in Jakarta (July 2007) was a flag display
(showing the real flag and a painted picture). The Sulawesi independence flag is
from Aug 7th 1953, the Sulawesi self-proclaimed independence. The flag is
2: 3 flag in proportion, a red field charged with a yellow crescent and three 5
pointed stars in the canton.

"Some states resisted incoporation and still do. These include: Minahasa, or Permesta (a district in north Celebes). Its flag was said to be yellow with a black letter P (for 'Permesta').[...]"
I don't think Permesta is a district, but rather a movement active in Minahasa
(among others I presume) in the early 1960s.
