[flag of National Revolutionary Army Commander in Chief]

In May 6, 1953, a flag similar to the National Revolutionary Army Commander-in-Chief was created in Taiwan for the position of Commander-in-Chief. It was again based on the Army flag, but with a yellow border on all four sides, and was further fringed in yellow. Above it was a small blue-white-red horizontal tricolour with a yellow plum blossom at its centre. Like all other Taiwanese military flags, it was carried on a red pole with white metal spearhead finial and white metal pike base.

Rank Flag Information

The Taiwanese Army rank flags are green, with the Army emblem above yellow five-pointed stars arranged horizontally: General First Class has four, General Second Class has three, Lieutenant-General has two, Major-General has one. That of colonel has thee plum blossoms in place of stars.

The Army emblem consists of crossed rifle and sword, surrounded by two panicles of rice, each containing seven grains (representing July 7, the beginning of Sino-Japanese War in 1937), the whole under the white sun on blue disc.
