The flag of the Prime Minister, which is illustrated in Smith
(1980)[smi80], is the same as the
national flag but is charged with a gold parliamentary mace
placed vertically in the fly.
Vincent Morley, 16 January 1998
The flag shown in [zna99] is
blue with white disk in the middle containing the shield with
motto and the name of the country above.
The shield is of the pattern shown as 1959-1971 though with red chief in stead of blue. Motto reads "Expulsis piratis Restitua Commercia".
It is my guess that [zna99] here have a "typo" and show the pre-1973 flag wrongly captioned as "since 1973".
To hold this theory I can quote Smith 1980 already showing the more imaginative PM flag being equal with the national flag with the mace in fly.

According to a letter from the BS Embassy in London dated 8
May 1998, cabinet minister's flag should present a full CoA in
the white disc, that is around the shield the portants (fish
& bird), the helm, and the motto on basement
