Minister of Defence Flag

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 20 May 2001

At Album 2000 [pay00] - Minister of Defence (2:3) - National flag with black anchor topped with stylized "bird badge" centered on the flag.
Zeljko Heimer, 20 May 2001

The stylization of the black emblems are a bit different from previously reporeted flags, but I am inclined to give right to the Album 2000 versions (this, first of all, goes for the shape of the "bird badge", as I called it). However, one should not rule out the possibility that in last 150 years or so how long these flags are used (if I understood rightly, they are quite as old as the national flag) the stylization might have changed a bit.

State Minister or Elected President

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 22 May 2001

At [pay00], fig. 11 Captions says "... elected President". Are there non-elected presidents? Possibly there is someting behind this wording that I don't understand right.
Zeljko Heimer, 9 January 2001

I would suggest that "pre'sident elu" [presumably "presidente eligido" in Spanish] is probably better translated as "president- elect," meaning a president who has been elected but has not yet taken office.
Joseph McMillan, 11 January 2001

At Album 2000 [pay00] - State Minister or elected President (2:3) - National flag with a black "bird badge" in canton.
The flag was previously reported as "Ministers and Ambassadors Flag", but I guess that Armand's interpretation is more correct (or is it?). Also, am I right that "state ministers" are not all the members of the government, but only few ministers holding the most important positions, maybe with specially authorities/responsibilities?
Zeljko Heimer, 22 May 2001

I've never seen it but of course that doen't mean it doesn't exist. Elected President referrs to a president who has been elected but has not taken office (President-Elect). Presidential elections take place in May but the president does not take office until August 7, leaving a three months interval. State Minister referrs to "Ministro de Estado", also known as "Ministro Delegatrio". This is a figure by which a minister temporarily (usually a few days) carries on the president's functions at home while the president is travelling.
