China-Communist Vol. Flag from Korean War.
Found it. According to Flags of the World, it is the flag of the Democratic Youth Union (League). It existed from 1946 to 1960 under that name. The illustration has a different color scheme but the characters and logo style are the same. Perhaps the variation is a later design. The current design used by the successor organization, the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League is quite different but still has the 민 청 characters

Also OFW, your illustration is inverted. It also is the same style and with the same Korean characters 민 청. It could be an earlier version. Here's some info:
