[Maritime police flag]by Zeljko Heimer

The flag is triangular (2:3), red with the word POLIS written horizontally in white letters. Note that the penultimate letter is not an i but a capital I with a dot over it, which is, in Turkish, different from a dotless i.

Police on land

Crampton [cra90f] described the police flag as: "Red with a large white-rayed star containing a red oval, with the crescent and star in white."
Lupant [lup95a] shows a similar flag, but the firld of the flag is diagonally divided red and white. Znamierowski [zna99] show this flag as hoisted over the police stations.
