Defence Minister's Pennant

image by Željko Heimer

Adopted 12 April 1996. Ratio: 3:4 (60X80 cm.).
Željko Heimer

According to Album 2000 [pay00] - Minister of Defence (3:4) - Swallow-tailed national tricolour edges on non-hoist edges with the tricolour fringe.

Your rendition is OK, (Image 1) although the real pennant has a national-colored edge, but it is not part of the pennant, the manufacturer closes the edges of ensings and pennants by this way in order to longer usability (as you also suggested it).

Senior Commander's Pennant

image by Željko Heimer, 15 Sepember 2014

Concering the image at L'Album 2000 [pay00] (Fig 6. Seniority pennant): There is not mention of the leaves around the shield, and the shape of corner peieces is unclear. Also, I don't remember seing anything defining the "wolf-teeth" along the outer edges not to be equilateral triangles.
Željko Heimer, 5 January 2001

The law states :"without tenants of branches.." , and the shape of corner pieces is unclear. the law states :"half-corners, green".
Armand Noel du Payrat, 12 January 2001

Adopted 12 April 1996. Ratio: 3:4 (60x80 cm.).
According to Album 2000 [pay00] - Senior Officer Afloat (3:4) - Triangular white flag with coat of arms near the hoist (without the branches) and with triangular wofl-teeth along edges (7 at hoist, 11 at each side) and green corner-pieces.

The commission pennant and the ministerial flag need no updates, I guess, but the senior officer's pennant does so very much. Although I haven't found a photo of it, the Wikipedia seems to be closer to what it might actually look like. Anyway, although these may still not be 100% correct regarding the edge and cornerpieces, they must be way better then my 2001 gifs we still display. I would be glad if we could make them even better eventually, but in the mean time, they should serve.

Your image is perfect (image). I have only one comment. I prefer when you used Hungarian coat of arms version of your 2001 renditions, because it seems to be more black-contoured crown on recently posted ensings than previous ones. This pennant is used when a commander stays on aboard of a vessel who has higher rank than its original commander (except the Minister of Defense, who has an own pennant).
