Navy jack

[Navy jack]

Blue flag with white five-pointed star. The Album 2000 [pay00] agrees well with Neubecker [neu92]; 1917 NGM [gmc17] does not have this one. I would suspect that currently this flag is hardly to be used.

Masthead Pennant

[Pennant]
by Zeljko Heimer, 16 May 2002

Long triangular pennant with blue field at hoist containing a white five-pointed star in the middle and red over white bicolour in fly. By measuring in the Album 2000 [pay00], the blue field seems to be 7,5 times longer then wide at hoist, and total ratio is pretty close to 1:20.

Masthead Pennant as of 1939

[Old pennant]
by Zeljko Heimer, 16 May 2002

The Flaggenbuch [neu92] has a quite different pennant: triangular vertically divided in three fields, blue at hoist, red in the middle and white in fly, of unequal lengths 1:(3+9+8). White star is in the middle of the blue field. Based on evidence that Liberian flags follow (and apparently always did) close the US pattern, I wander how come that the masthead pennant is so out of pattern? Is it possible that Neubecker is wrong here?

Customs flag

[Customs flag]

2:3, in canton a blue star on a white field, main field with 13 vertical alternating red and white stripes. Would need confirmation. (Source: [neu92])

The customs ensign seems not to be confirmed after WWII (is it given anywhere else but Neubeckerís [neu92]?). It based, again, on similar US ensign. Vertically striped red and white of 13 stripes (as in US pattern, the original number of stripes LR11/US13 is increased LR13/US16 to provide nicer visual effect) and white canton with blue fivepointed star. The canton is 6 stripes long and approximately as wide as it would be on the national ensign).
