In the emblem the three agitos symbol of the Paralympics.
Considering the Paralympics changed their logo in 2004, from three tae-geuk-s, and a decade before that, in 1994, fro the original five tae-geuk-s, there may have been other versions of this flag, based on such emblems.

The Paralympic flag replaces the Olympic rings with the logo of the
International Paralympic Committee.

This specimen is in
reverse on the reverse, even if the photographer doesn't realise. The emblem on
this flag looks more like the party emblem to me than like the national
emblem. I expect the party emblem was on the national flag, in practice, when
Taiwan was stopped from using it in the Olympics, so it's likely that this
version of the emblem was included in the first replacement flags. Peace Eye
2000 does indeed have the party emblem for the Olympic version, but the
national emblem for Paralympic version, and the generic version. Further
research is indicated, I guess.
It's also an interesting specimen in a different way: It's a super-hoist horizontal flag.
Regarding the question on our page about versions with older paralympic emblems: At least one Wikimedia contributor apparently believes an earlier version existed.
