[Civil War] Army of West Virginia Flag

The James E. Taylor Sketchbook illustrates Brevet Major General George Crook with a flag which is black and white.
The flag has three horizontal stripes, the center one being wider. At the left of the center (and wider) stripe ther are two stars, one above the other (arranged vertically).

The time period is Sept. to Dec. 1864.

This may be Crook's personal flag or the flag of Kanawa (pre
admission name for West Virginia). It is NOT Eighth Corps.

Can anyone tell me the colors of that flag? Dimensions?

I would be very greatful.
