Chief of the Swedish Motorboat Volunteer Corps

[Chief, Swedish Volunteer Motoboat Corps] ratio:~5:8 by Željko Heimer
Source: Flaggenbuch

Blue rectangular flag with emblem of the Corps off-set to hoist. The emblem consists of a black ring addorned with yellow leaves in it, and within the ring a yellow anchor topped with a crown and surrounded with letters SFMK, one in each quarter. The construction details are not given, but from the image, the rectangle is 5:8 (ratio matches the national ensign), the ring is 1/2 the hoist and is off-set from the center 1/3 of the hoist.

I presume that the flag was used beside the normal rectangular national ensign (surely), probably not on the stern, instead of the usual SFMK triangular pennant by the chief of the Corps.

Flotilla Chief

[Flotilla Chief flag] ratio: ~1:2 by Željko Heimer
Source: Flaggenbuch

Rectangular swallow-tailed blue flag with SFMK emblem near the hoist. The construction details are not given in Flaggenbuch, but from the image, the ratio is 1:2, indentation reaching center of the flag, and the emblem is in the middle between the hoist and the indentation top. The emblem is 1/2 the hoist in diameter.

This would be the flag used instead of the triangular pennant by the second ranking officers of the organization. Presumably there would be several of them in whole Sweden, possibly on regional principle.

Motorboat Pennant

[Motorboat Pennant] ratio: ~3:5 by Željko Heimer

Blue triangular pennant with the Corps emblem next to hoist. The emblem in the pennant seems to be larger then in the previous two official's flags, being in diameter about 2/3 of the hoist. This would be pennant that would be hoisted on a motorboats of regular members of the organization (in addition to national ensign, surely).
