Album 2000 [pay00] shows a white over blue bicolour with the national flag (without coat of arms) in canton and the coat of arms surrounded with five white stars in blue stripe. The flag in canton does not reach to the lower blue stripe. Also, the coat of arms in base is not transparent in its “inner part” but white.

Army flag

I have found out that the Dominican Army flag has changed a bit. Instead of five stars, the canton now has the coat of arms in a white square inside the blue. Otherwise the flag remains the same. Source: the official Dominican Army website, (Warning: there is an image on the website of an “Army Flag” with the arms at the centre of the flag. This is completely wrong.)

According to Preben Kannik’s Alverdens Flag I Farver [kan56], the green stripe represents the infantry, the white stripe the air force, the red stripe the artillery, and the yellow stripe the cavalry. Only used together with the national flag. According to [ped80], the state flag is used as flag of the army, but [bcr81] still shows this one as the Army flag.

Album 2000 [pay00] shows a roundel quartered in blue and red by a white cross and overall a white annulaet.

“Quartered” disc, blue-red-blue-red, with superimposed a white cross and a white circular band (looks like the aiming of a firearm).

In the early 90’ies a low visability version was adopted.

Fin flash

Album 2000 [pay00] says in a note that national flag is painted on the fin.
Željko Heimer, 17 Jun 2001

The current fin flash is in use since 1948. It replaced the 1933 full rudder fin flash, which looked like a vertically streched national flag; its measures were according to the rudder of each and every plane, so we can’t speak on fix ratio here.
