Left, first version (1922)
Right, second version (1937)
The customs signal (literally "customs service signal", carinski znak) is prescribed in Article 10 of the 1922 law. The customs service vessels hoisted a triangular signal with blue-white-red stripes converging to the fly. The ratio of the flag is 2:3.
The customs signal prescribed in 1937 is a green triangular flag with the national coat of arms in the middle.

The postal service signal (poštanski znak) is prescribed in Article 11 of the 1922 law. Ships that carried mail were to hoist on signal mast a flag horizontally divided blue-white-red (1:2:1) and charged with a blue posthorn (width: half of the flag width). The ratio of the flag is 1:1.
The 1937 law kept this signal.
