There is a Malaysian blue ensign. In typical British tradition, it has as its canton the Malaysian national flag on a dark blue background. I have seen 2 of these flying on water. One flew on a channel dredge while the other flew from what I believe is a police boat. I also found 3 samples in the afore mentioned flag shop. The most interesting thing about the blue ensign is its proportions. They are 2 to 3. Also, as best as I can tell, the canton is not exactly quartered. It is 8/14 the width of the entire
ensign and 1/2 the length which corresponds exactly to the canton measurements on the Malaysian national flag.

Both Barraclough and Crampton 1978 [bcr78] and Pedersen 1971 [ped71] mention Malaysia having a Blue Ensign, i.e.,
blue field with Malaysian National flag in canton.
