According to wikipedia you are correct. Supposedly it is the flag of the 6th Ohrid Battalion. Weird thing is it is the only flag from the corps I've seen to actually depict a Bulgarian flag on it, most of the others seem to just have lions and declarations such as 'autonomous Macedonia' or 'freedom or death'.
