The current Royal Marines camp flag is dark blue with red, yellow and green stripes.
The camp flag of the Royal Scots was dark blue over medium green over red in equal stripes.
I don't know this one for certain - the colours of the flag would be dark blue and orange, but I'm not certain how they would be arranged.
Dark blue with a narrow red central stripe (proportions around 3:2:3)
Plain medium green.
Dark blue with a central stripe divided red over grass green (again, around 3:1:1:3)
The colours of their flag were cherry red and yellow. The Expeditionary Force HQ used an arm badge of a white five-pointed star on a blue square. This might have appeared as a flag.
