Naval Jack

[New national Jack of Uruguay]
by Calvin Paige Herring, 11 Jun 1998

I have just spoken with the Uruguayan embassy, and a secretary spoke with the naval attaché, and confirmed that their “navy flag” is white with a blue diagonal cross and their sun-symbol at the crossing.
John Ayer, 10 Feb 1998

The somewhat recently readopted jack is a white saltire with the sun of Uruguay in the center. This flag replaces the majestic Artigas banner of Uruguayan history; however, this jack has a history with the Uruguayan Navy. Gordon [gor24] describes this flag as «practically the Russian ensign with a sun in the center». Therefore, this apparently new design is merely a return to quite possibly the original jack.
Calvin Paige Herring, 11 Jun 1998

The sun in the Uruguayan jack is not the same as that used on the national flag, it is more circular shaped.

Previous Naval Jack

[Previous Naval Jack]
by Ole Andersen, 06 Jun 1998

Perhaps the reversion is motived by the adoption, in the near argentine province of Entre Ríos, of a flag in the same pattern as the [old] Uruguayan Jack.
Jaume Ollé, 15 Feb 1998

I do not know when Uruguay changed her jack, but I can tell you why: because the Tupamaros used the Artigas flag as their symbol.
Juan Morales, 08 Jun 1998


Naval Jack in 1905

[Naval Jack in 1905]
by António Martins and Zeljko Heimer, 22 Jun 1998

I think that the new reported Urguayan Jack is the same that appear in Flaggenbuch 1905 [ruh05] but is little different: The centre of the diagonal cross is white and then the four arms don’t touch the sun. I assume that the 3:4 is the correct ratio.
Jaume Ollé, 15 Feb 1998

These images show the naval jack, as of 1905, in use in ships: in a painting and in a black and white photo. The ratio looks more like 2:3...
