Flag of the President of the Republic

[Flag] image by Zoltan Horvath, 12 April 2024

There are three variations of the Presidential Flag. Based on the image at https://president.az/en/articles/view/61113 (archived here) the flag is a square variant of the state flag with the state emblem in the middle of the red stripe.
Zoltan Horvath, 12 April 2024

Two web pages (https://mod.gov.az/en/news and https://azersuvenir.gov.az) show the flag as a 1:1 ratio. The law at https://e-qanun.az/framework/15400 shows the flag as square, along with the illustration for reference. The last line states the standard "can be produced in other sizes" but did not state that the 1:1 ratio must be maintained. The text, in the original Azeri, is as follows: "Azərbaycan Respublikası Prezidentinin ştandartı (bayrağı) mxtəlif llərdə ola bilər."

The Album des Pavillons 2023 shows a similar flag, but its proportions are 1:2 (probably used on land).

Both French Navy Books illustrate a Presidential Flag used at sea, which is based on the naval ensign, but state emblem and national colors are placed on the white field instead of crescent & star emblem and anchor. Its proportions are 3:5.

It seems the naval flag for the president was canceled by decree on 3 December 2019 (https://e-qanun.az/framework/43967). However, the construction details and image of this flag (among other naval flags) can be seen at https://e-qanun.az/framework/4908

The sea flag of the Minister of Defense is in proportions 3:5, white with a light blue cotised wavy stripe along the bottom, as in the naval flag. Along the middle of the white field is set a light blue stripe (1/5th of the hoist). In hoist are placed a red crescent and star fimbriated white, and in fly a light blue fouled anchor within a yellow wreath with a ribbon of national tricolour in base all fimbriated from the blue stripe in white.
Compared with the national flag, the flag has a bigger (or equal) star and a more "opened" crescent.
