Reports of flag

I'm currently watching day 2 of the second cricket test between Australia and England at Adelaide. On the pavilion there are several flags flying - those of Australia and England, of course, but also one which I can't recognise. It's vertically divided into blue, yellow and red and contains some sort of emblem in the centre of the yellow stripe. Since I seriously doubt it's anything to do with Moldova, (which is what it looks like from the distance), is it perhaps the flag of the South Australian Cricket Association?

Given the context and the colours, I have no doubt that it is the flag of the South Australian Cricket Association (SACA). Did the emblem look like it could be SACA's fairly modern looking cricket ball, stumps and "piping shrike", as seen at the SACA website?

Difficult to tell. It was definitely circular in shape, but also gave me the impression of a bird in some way, though that could have been because I first thought of Moldova when I saw it.

I'm currently watching coverage of the one-day international cricket match between Australia and New Zealand, which is being played in Adelaide. A flag is flying above the ground which I take to be the flag of the South Australia Cricket Association.

The flag has three vertical stripes of red, yellow and blue, similar shades to Romania, but reversed. The central stripe could be wider, possibly as wide as on the Norfolk Island flag, but not as wide as Canada's flag.

The centre of the yellow stripe contains a circular emblem based on the South Australian state flag - red with a displayed magpie (proper), in front of which is a cricket wicket. The letters SACA are written in black under the circle.

A version of the central logo (which seems a bit more stylised than on the flag) is shown at the top left of the new SACA website.
