Yes, the community of Biabas is predominantly Eskaya but the flag itself is not. This flag and other artefacts are kept very safe and not always shown to outsiders.
@Way Nada: (Sorry my Visayan is not up to scratch) It would be a good idea for experts to investigate this flag but I think it important that this should be done respectfully - museums are not always the safest places either. Over the years, a number of artefacts have disappeared from Bohol's provincial museum and the library. The slogan suggests a katipunan origin for the flag, but according to Marianito Luspo, there is no evidence that the katipunan were ever organised on Bohol. Sabas Ligones is the only probable link between the katipunan and the Bohol fighters. Also, I'm pretty sure that carbon dating cannot give you such a specific date and recent date. It would be necessary to prove that the flag was produced in the late 1890s - deciding its actual provenance would be even harder.

Kanang nakasuwat sa bandera klaro kaayong binisaya... ang mga Eskaya naay ilang kaugalingong sinuwatan. Dili ni sila Eskaya kay kadtong mga Eskaya dili mo-ipon ug laing tawo. Mao bitaw na nga na-preserved ang ilang sinuwatan ug sinultihan.

I believe the people who made this flag are the followers of the Katipunan under Aguinaldo. I don't think they are the Eskaya... but I believe they were the loyal followers of Pedro Samson who was the chief of the militia formed during the erstwhile Republic of Bohol. My uncle used to say sometimes in the 1960's; "I wonder where is Pedro Samson now. He was the militia leader who defied the American occupation of Bohol."   

Being the chief of Bohol government's militia Pedro Samson was also offered the same post to serve as the chief constable of the police force formed by the Americans. He ran to the hills with his men and fought the American occupiers. He was caught and was amnestied to serve again and ran again to the hills. The defiance of Samson against the Americans is like the defiance against the government experienced by Gringo Honasan. The last time he defied the American authority and went to the hills he was not heard of again by the town folks. Pedro Samson was never found either he was summarily executed by the Americans or he died hiding in towns not reached by the Americans. He was a Boholano hero but the American authority in Bohol erased his exploits and heroism.   

I can conjecturize when the Americans started burning barrios in their mopping operations where Pedro Samson was believed to be hiding like for example  when they burned barrio Lonoy of Jagna... maybe Samson and his band of rebels were there and ran farther east until they reached Guindulman.

This Katipunan flag is the evidence that the information in the diary of George Percival Scriven is correct that the Boholanos were loyal to Pres. Emilio Aguinaldo.

According to his diary; Every town that Maj. Hale and George Percival Scriven went... in every government building in a show of loyalty and reverrence the Boholanos hanged the picture of Aguinaldo. It was the initiative of the presidente of Bohol Bernabe Reyes who sought the help of Florentino Torres [The name does it sound a bell?] for Pres. Aguinaldo to grant independence and make Bohol a republic.
