    As for dates, 1816 is probably the earliest year for these flags (including No 6. Commodore), possibly these flags were even established at a later date, I am not sure because the earliest primary document I have found is the 1836 navy flag regulations. Interestingly, the 1836 navy flag regulations show the flags of admirals with rectangular panels on the hoist side of the flag. I suppose this indicates that at the time there were less concern for specific proportions and construction details than there is today.
