Sultan's standard, 1917 - Image by Željko Heimer, 20 April 2003
The flag, shown as #1018 in National Geographic (1917)
[gmc17], is a red flag with the
Imperial tugra within a rayed
ornament, all in white.
The Sultan at the time would be Mehmed V Reşad Gazi (ruling 1909-1918), whose tugra can be found on the Tugras website and was used for the above image.

Naval flag of the Sultan - Image by Željko Heimer, 19 June 1996
The naval flag of the Sultan was pink with a kind of star in the center (similar to that of Emirate of Afghanistan), with the white moon crescent and the star (five points) in the interior. The flag of the Imperial retinue was similar to the naval flag but swallow-tailed.
