Wikipedia is actually listing both in multiple places. The top flag it's using is the non-French flag. I'm inclined to use the unique one. Some information on the talk page mentions that flying it is legal for public buildings, so it is legitimate but possibly disputed.

My new policy with regard to flag disputes is to generally go along with what the consensus of the experts on Wikipedia have agreed upon rather than me wading into each country's identity disputes. (something which I am not qualified to do) They currently use this as the flag for New Caledonia and I'm inclined to use this rather than not include a unique flag. If this were not the case and this flag were not listed as the accepted flag prominently, then yes, I would change it.
