About the 1894-1904 rank flags

These Argentine rank flags are based on the book Flags of Maritime Nations [u9s99a].
Miles Li, 27 Dec 2007

Flags of Maritime Nations [u9s99a] took these designs from the Argentine book Código Nacional de Señales (National Code of Signals) written by Eduardo Muscari and published by the Argentine Navy in 1894. These ranks were used until 1904 when a new reglament was established.

Admiral

[Admiral]
by Miles Li and Jaume Ollé, 28 Dec 2007

Admiral had three stars. Note that [u9s99a] labelled [wrongly] the three-star flag as Vice Admiral.
Miles Li, 28 Dec 2007


Vice Admiral

[Vice Admiral]
by Miles Li and Jaume Ollé, 28 Dec 2007

Vice Admiral had two stars. Note that [u9s99a] labelled [wrongly] the two-star flag as Rear Admiral.

Jane's Fighting Ships pre-WWI showed the two-star flag as Vice Admiral.
Miles Li, 28 Dec 2007


Rear Admiral

[Rear Admiral]
by Miles Li and Jaume Ollé, 28 Dec 2007

Rear Admiral had one star. Note that [u9s99a] labelled [wrongly] the one-star flag as Commodore. This was probably a mistake by the US Navy which was unfamiliar with the star-rank system of Argentina.

Jane's Fighting Ships pre-WWI showed the one-star flag as Rear Admiral.
