Minister of defence flag

The Minister of Defence

This flag was formerly that of the Minister of the Navy. The emblem remains the same: Crowned anchor with a bar and rope/chain.

The state flag with white panel with crowned anchor. Here the emblem is shown all golden although Album des Pavillons shows it blue + golden. Some details of the rope and the crown are slightly different, too.

Politikens Flagbog labels this flag "Fosvarsministeriet" (the Ministry of Defence), assigning it to the whole organisation, rather than just the one man. It agrees with our image where the smaller size of the panel is concerned, but has a crown lined only half way up and (like all Danish crowns) with a cross at the top, and it has a blue anchor with a fatter, and white, cross bar, and a red rope coiling quite differently, though still giving the same impression.

Chief of defense staff flag

[Chief of defense staff flag] by Paige Herring

The state flag with two white staffs in saltire in the first quarter. Whether these staffs are sceptres or marshal batons, I can't say, but in Album des Pavillons (2000) they are considerably different from what is shown here (much thinner).

Aircraft Marking

Roundel of red and white, red outside double the diameter of the white disk. A note to the figure in Album des Pavillons (2000) explains that the national flag is painted on the fin of the Navy Aircraft.
