Introduction: German Pirate Party
Piratenpartei Deutschland

The German Pirate Party (Piratenpartei Deutschland) was founded on 2006-09-10, not long after several similar parties were started in other countries, like France and Sweden. Currently it is one of the most successful Pirate Parties, having elected representation in four state parliaments (Berlin, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saarland and Schleswig-Holstein). Source: Pirate Party at Wikipedia.
The most widespread flag (see image above) is orange, with the party signet, as they call it, in center hoist and inscription PIRATEN PARTEI written in two rows from the signet towards the fly. All charges are in white and black. The ratio is 2:3.
Among its innumerable photos on the Web, some good examples can be seen at the DRadio Wissen website, Hamburger Abendblatt Online, and corcordis.de photography.

From what I know, they have some seats in some regional parliaments, the Landtag in the Saarland, Schleswig-Holstein and Berlin, but they do not yet a seat in the federal parliament, the Bundestag. However, I don't think they see themselves as regional political parties, so possibly they can be just called a political party currently holding parliamentary seats
Dirk Schönberger, 24 March 2013

The Pirate Party Germany is currently a national German opposition party. It is active throughout Germany. In four states (Bundesländer): Schleswig-Holstein, North Rhine-Westphalia, Berlin and Saarland., this party has seats in their state parliaments. In the fall of 2013, the Pirate Party has ambitions to move into the federal parliament (Bundestag).

German Pirate Party (variant type #2)
Piratenpartei Deutschland (typ-#2)

Aparently a much less used flag, considering the frequency of its appearances on Google image searches, is charged only with large signet in center.

The plain Pirate Party flag variant also appears sometimes with a simplified signet [also used on the PD car flag variant mentioned directly below] at demonstrations and rallies. Sources: At the Demonstration Against Surveillance and both party flags can be seen together at the Pirate Party website.

Queerates Flags
Queeraten

Queerates (Queeraten) is the name under which the Pirate Party members take part in the LGBT-related events. The flags which they use on such occasions are created by combining the general party flags with the Rainbow Flag. The use of the flags is not limited to the LGBT-related events, just as the general flags also appear there frequently.

One of the most frequently used variants displays the rainbow field with wavy stripes which have two arcs, red at the top; there is a complex device in the center, consisting of the simplified party signet surrounded with a wide ring in rainbow colors arranged diagonally, its segments being rotated counter-clockwise related to the direction of the field partition lines in the area beneath the device; the ring is separated from the signet and the field by white fimbriations. The flag was already used in early 2013, when the general party flags were reported, but its earliest photos which are currently available online date from 2015 [1, 2]. It was in continuous use ever since [3-14].
Another very frequently used flag displays large simplified party signet over the same wavy rainbow field, the device size being the same as of the one on the previously described flag. For this variant, the use can be verified since 2010 [15-24].
Both flags are frequently used together, the earliest currently available online photos dating from 2014 [25-30], but the practice must be older.

An early variant was photographed in Augsburg in 2010 [31-34]. There, the field was composed of simple horizontal stripes, violet at the top. The central device was a large black sail within a black ring (no white disk); the ring was wider than typically seen in the party signets.

Another combination of the Pirate Party symbols and the Rainbow Flag was seen in Berlin on several occasions in 2018 [35-38]. It was derived from the general flag of the party, with the party name inscribed in black and white and the simpler version of party signet, but instead of white, the disc which the black sail was placed upon was in rainbow colors, red being the topmost, the stripes being rotated 45 degrees counter-clockwise.
A variant of the previous design has the field in red instead of orange. The only currently known photo was taken in Berlin in June 2018 [39] and it clearly reveals the field color, which is easy to compare with the rainbow stripes within the emblem, as well as with many party flags with orange fields which are visible in the background.
