Commodore

[Commodore]
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Shown in [pay00]: 1:2 blue flag with yellow five-pointed star in the middle. (This somewhat reminds to the old flag of Congo. The resemblance is coincidence, no doubt, inevitable with so basic elements.) Neubecker 1939 [neu92] captions this flag (in 2:3 ratio, as all other rank flags) as flag of the naval Captain (Kapitan zur See) with independent command.

This flag is given to Flotilla Commander in the Album 1995 recapitulative issue [pie95]. Change of the rank system or something else?

Flotilla Commander

[Flotilla Commander]
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Shown in [pay00]: 5:6 blue swallow-tailed flag with yellow five-pointed star in the middle. Neubecker [neu92] captions is Stander eines Geschwander- oder Flotillenchefs, i.e. a flag of a Commander of a Squadron or Flotilla, if I translate the naval unit names correctly.

Squadron or Flotilla Commander (ca. 1939)

[Flotilla Commander 1939]
image by Željko Heimer, 28 Oct 2002

Shown in the Flaggenbuch [neu92], Squadron (Geschwader) or Flotilla Commander: Ratio 5:6; basically the same as today, the difference in the star size might not be significant.
Željko Heimer, 28 Oct 2002

as of 1995?

[Flotilla Commander 1995]
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Shown in Album 1995 recapitulative issue [pie95] as 1 star rectangle 1:2; This flag is given to commodore in Album 2000 [pay00]. Change of the rank system or something else?

Commander of River Defence

[Commander of River Defence]
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Shown in [pay00]: A 5:6 swallow-tailed flag vertically divided into blue and white with a yellow five-pointed star in the blue field. No matching flag in Neubecker 1939 [neu92]. Presumaby this was latter adopted to differenceate the position of the river defence commander among other flotilla and squadron commanders, as this position is probably unique.

Shown also in Album 1995 recapitulative issue [pie95].

Commander (Cfr) and Lieutenant-Commander (Ccv) as a Commander of Group

[Comm. and Lt.-Comm]
image by Željko Heimer, 28 Oct 2002

Shown in the Flaggenbuch [neu92]: 4:5 triangular pennant horizontally divided in red, white and blue.

Senior Officer Afloat

[Senior Officer Afloat]
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Shown in [pay00]: Triangular 4:5 blue flag. Same in Neubecker [neu92], even the same ratio.
Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Senior Officer Aboard (as of 1995)

[Senior Officer Aboard]
image by Željko Heimer, 26 Oct 2002

Shown in Album 1995 recapitulative issue [pie95] trapeze blue. In Album 2000 [pay00], Senior Officer Afloat (the same rank?) is given a triangular blue flag, just as in Neubecker 1939 [neu92]. What about this trapeze?

General Prefect of Ports

[General Prefect of Ports]
image by Željko Heimer, 27 Oct 2002

Shown in Album 1995 recapitulative issue [pie95]: Trapeze, white, blue cross. (Reconstruction based on this vague description.) Not given in Album 2000 [pay00] (why? unconfirmed?)
Željko Heimer, 27 Oct 2002


Capitan (CdV)

[Capitan (CdV)]
image by Željko Heimer, 27 Oct 2002

Shown in Album 1995 recapitulative issue [pie95]: no stars, i.e. pure blue flag. Unusual, possibly an errorneous information not confirmed by the time of issue of Album 2000 [pay00] (where it is missing). Any idea if this is a credible flag, disconinued later on?

Naval Captain (CdV) as independent commander (ca. 1939)

[Paraguayan CdV 1939]
image by Željko Heimer, 28 Oct 2002
