Concerning the white squares and diamond, I think it must be the Tibetan heading system. I'm not sure of this, but I think we can see the flag on this photo (the one on the right): http://nyc.indymedia.org/images/2008/04/96773.jpg
And perhaps on this one : http://www.jamyangnorbu.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/flags-horses.jpg
About the flag itself, I wonder if it couldn't be related to the Mimang Tsongdu (litt. : Popular Assembly), a local group showing its opposition to the Chinese occupation. When the 1959 Lhasa riot broke out, the Dalaï-lama fled Tibet and  the Mimang Tsongdu united together with a group from eastern Tibet, the Chushi Gandruk (see Tibetan Resistance) to form the Tensung Danglang Maggar (Volunteer Freedom Fighters for Tibet).
