Blue flag with Air Force emblem in the upper middle and three white
five-pointed stars in line near the bottom. The complicated construction sheet
provided in Flaggenbuch (using hoist size as
252 units) could be described in words much easier: center of the AF emblem is
1/3 of the hoist from top in the center of the length. The disk is 1/21 of hoist
and total height of the emblem is 9 times that size. The wing span is 1/3 of
hoist (measured from the center of the emblem), so the whole emblem is 2/3 of
the hoist long. The wings height is 1/7 of the hoist. The stars are centered on
a line halving the stripe between the bottom of the emblem and the bottom of the
flag, the diameter of the stars is also that half stripe. The distance between
the hoist, the centers of the stars and the fly are equal, i.e. 1/4 of the
length each. Also, in Flaggenbuch is indicated that the size of these flags is
either 90x150 cm or 120x200 cm.

Blue flag with the Air Force emblem in the middle off-set to top and two white five-pointed stars in lower part.

The construction is analogous to the 3-star General flag, with the difference
in stars, of course. Here also, the distance between the hoist and the center of
the first star is equal to the distance between the centers of the stars and
that is in turn equal to the distance between the center of the second star and
the fly.

Blue flag with the Air Force emblem in the middle off-set to top and a white
five-pointed star below it. The construction is entirely equal to the 3-star
General flag without the two outer stars.

Proportions: 3:5

Triangular pennant with the Air Force emblem in the hoist and three white
five-pointed stars in line in the fly. The emblem span (from center) is 1/3 of
the hoist, and adequate height as in the higher ranks flags (9/21). The distance
of the vertical axis from hoist is at odd distance of 71/336 of the total
length. The remaining 265/336 is measure on which stars are referenced, let's
call that length A. The stars are inscribed in circle of diameter A/8, the
central star is at the half of the length A, and center of the other two are A/6
on either direction.

Triangular pennant with the Air Force emblem in the hoist and two white
five-pointed stars in line in the fly. Same construction as above, however the
stars here are somewhat larger, as they are inscribed in circle with diameter
2A/15. Distance between the two circle centers is A/5, twice that length from
the center of the AF emblem to the hoist most star.

Proportions: 3:5

Triangular pennant with the Air Force emblem in the hoist and a single white five-pointed star in the fly. The construction is equal to the Colonel's pennant, retaining only the central star.

Proportions: 3:5

Blue triangular pennant with white Air Force emblem. Again the emblem wing
span is 1/3 of the hoist with all other elements relatively adequate. The center
point of the emblem (center of the small disk) is at the top of the isosceles
triangle with sides equal 5/6 of the hoist and the base at hoist (which is to
say that with help of some geometry that the vertical axis of the emblem is 2/3
of the hoist from it).
