Commodore


by Zeljko Heimer

Commodore (or Commodore Admiral, or Rear Admiral - Lower Half, equal to Brigadier General) [Komodor] - The flag is the same as the admiral's flag, but with white field.
Zeljko Heimer, 1 November 1999


Fleet Commander Pennat


by Zeljko Heimer

Fleet Commander Pennat (Zapovjednik flote) : A trapezoidal pannat, in ratio 1:2. The fly edge is 1/3 of the hoist size. The field is blue, bordered with whider red border (outer) and thinner white one (inner). The width of the red border is 5% of the hoist size, and white border is half of it (2.5%). In the blue field, there is the coat of arms with two anchors, with vertical axis being (approximately?) half of the hoist size from hoist. The height of the symbol is 1/2 of the hoist.
Zeljko Heimer, 6 November 1999


Brigade Commander Pennant


by Zeljko Heimer

Brigade Commander Pennant (Zapovjednik brigade): A trapezoidal pennant, same as previous in shape, all blue with the coa and anchors. The size of the symbol is 1/2 of the hoist, and its vertical axisi is closer to the hoist the in previous flag - according to my approximation, it is shifted to the hoist 7.5% hoist size (i.e. for the width of the two borders in previous flag).
Zeljko Heimer, 6 November 1999


Division Commander Pennant


by Zeljko Heimer

Division Commander Pennant (Zapovjednik divizijuna): What I translated here as division might be misleading. The word "divizijun" represent a unit less then brigade, and IINW, division in English is bigger then brigade. Maybe the word "flotilla" would come here handy, or any other suggestion?

The flag is of the same trapezoidal shape, white with blue border, 5% of the flag hoist wide. The coa and anchors are on the same position as in the brigade commander pennant (i.e. shifted to hoist 7.5% from 1/2 hoist vertical).
Zeljko Heimer, 6 November 1999

It may help to know that, in the Russian Army, there are two terms translated as "division:"  diviziya, which equates roughly to a division in Western army terms, and divizion, which is (IIRC) the artillery equivalent of a battalion and therefore a subdivision of a brigade or regiment.  The Croatian naval usage may be similar.
Joseph McMillan, 6 November 1999


Group Commander Pannant


by Zeljko Heimer

Group Commander Pannant (Zapovjednik odreda): The same trapezoidal flag, with the symbol in the same position again. The flag is red with white inner border. The width of the white border is 5% of the flag hoist, and it "offset" from the edge is another 5%.
Zeljko Heimer, 6 November 1999


Senior Officer pennant


by Zeljko Heimer

Senior Officer pennant (Najstariji zapovjednik na sidris<tu ili u luci): The same trapezoidal pennat, white with red 5% border, and the the coa nad anchor on the same position as on all previous pennants except the fleet commander pennat.
Zeljko Heimer, 6 November 1999
