President of the Republic. 2:3
Blue bordered green flag with emblem in the middle. The emblem is actually the coat of arms of Tanzania without the supporters (but with elephant tusk) and without panel (but with the ribbon with the motto). The motto reads UHURU NA UMOJA (Freedom and Unity, in Swahili).
I suppose that this flag may be as old as the national flag, i.e. 1964. At least it is shown already in [smi75].

In all versions that I have the letters (motto) in the arms are red.
Other differences are the parts of the ribbon featured in green, that are
maroon or perhaps dark gold, and the fire that is gold or orange, darker
than the torch. Until 1964 the arms were slighty different but I don't
know if that shows on the presidential flag
