Civil and Air Ensigns

I believe the current emirates have civil ensigns. I have the civil ensign and the air ensign of Abu Dhabi.

Santiago Dotor asked, "when did Abu Dhabi reduce its hoist stripe to a canton?". In 1958, at first at sea. On land the flag was still plain red. Only later the plain flag was abolished for the canton-flag. But I still do not know when, might be around 1968.
