The flag is blue, with the name written in orange in Burmese script.

The primary source of this flag is a personal, local observation by Michel
Lupant, reported, with due credit, in Francia
Vexilla (27/73, September 2002; 28/74, December 2002). The original
artwork in Francia Vexilla is by HervÃ© Calvarin. The image above as
published in Wikipedia was made by Jaume Ollé.

The division of Tanintharyi in Burma seems to have changed its flag.
Before was blue with a gold (or orange) burmese inscription that seems to be the name "Tanintharyi" with nothing more.
Some days ago I see that in the page of the government appear a different flag: three horizontal stripes of red, blue, green. A white star is in the center of the red stripe and bear a golden mithologic animal that can be s snake or a dragon in the center of the flag but mainly in the blue and green stripes, touching only slighty the red stripe.
I searched about this flag but as I can't read burmese characters is really hard. I believe that the change was in 2016. I located two versions of the central figure but I assume that the one in the government page must be more accurate.
As the page some days is not working (i. e. today), i send a link from Wayback machine.

The same flag appears in this 2019 photo at a Ministry of Health and Sports football tournament.
