Minister of Defence

 image by Željko Heimer, 21 October 2001

According to Album 2000 [pay00] - Minister of Defence (5:8) - Rectangular flag horizontally divided, upper half white with four black fimbriated golden stars set in a row, and lower half vertically divided in two, hoist red and fly blue.

Another flag altogether is seen behind the Minister of Defence in a photo at <www.mindef.mil.gt>. The flag is light blue, charged with white rectangle (bordered gold) which is charged with the national Coat of Arms and 4 gold stars. Above the rectangle there is a gold inscription in semi-circle which is probably "Ministro de la Defensa Nacional".

I would guess that the pattern reported by Album is the flag used in the navy on ships when MoD is present on a ship. The flag for the Ministry (or even minister himself), may of course, be much different, a proved by the photo Dov found.
