Zogu ruled the country in a dictatorial manner, in alliance first with Yugoslavia and later with Italy. Elections for a Constituent Assembly were held in July - August 1928. The Assembly held its first meeting on 1 September 1928, proclaiming then Zogu as king Zogu I. The new monarchic constitution was proclaimed on 22 November 1928, including adoption a new design of the national flag.

The new flags were approved on 3 August 1929 by the Council of Ministers, submitted to the king by the Prime Minister K. Kotta in the proposal 1271/I of 5 August 1929, and officially adopted by the Royal Legislative Decree # 178 on 8 August 1929. The previous flags were forbidden as of three months after the publication of this decree, which got into effect also three months after its publication.

In the civil flag the size of the eagle was variable, but it should have the same proportions as in the state flag (that is, 1:1) and the proportions of the flag should also be the same, 2:3.
