Civil and State ensign

by Željko Heimer, 6 April 2003

The civil ensign of Trinidad and Tobago is the same as the national flag, but in the proportions of 1:2.
Jan Zrzavy, 16 January 1998

According to Album 2000 [pay00] - Civil and State Ensign (---/CS- 1:2) - Red flag with a black falling diagonal fimbriated white. The design for the ensign is in longer ratio, 1:2.

Construction Sheet

Specification still give the bend width 1/5 of the length further divided 1-4-1.
Željko Heimer, 6 April 2003

The law is specific in giving the proportions in relation to the flag's length, but nowhere stipulates that this applies only to the variant for use on land. We must, therefore, conclude (in default of official information to the contrary) that the same proportions of stripe and fimbriation are to be applied to the ensign.

Naval (Coast Guard) ensign

[Trinidad and Tobago naval ensign]
by Željko Heimer, 6 April 2003

This ensign appears as Trinidad and Tobago coast guard flag at <>.
Dov Gutterman , 16 May 2000

According to Album 2000 [pay00] - Coast Guard Ensign (---/-S- 1:2) - White flag with red cross thoughout and the national flag in the canton fimbriated white. I.e. it is a white ensign, and therefore the width of the crossbars is 1/6 of the hoist, no doubt. I have no data if the fimbriatioon size of the canton is prescribed, probably not, and I give it about 1/2 of the white fimbriation in the national flag in canton. Maybe I was wrong as in the second look it seems that both Album and Smith give the two white fimbriations of the same width. Of course, the width of the bend is still 1/5 of the length of the canton, 1-4-1.
