Siegel (1912) reported "the flag introduced in the year 1786 by Emperor Joseph II
remained in existence, but in 1804 the permission that allowed the merchant ships to fly a pennant in the new flag colours and the arms was revoked."
The pennant was in the same colour and design as the Ensign since 1786.
