Customs Flag. It is actually called Revenue Flag in Estonian documents in English available on the Net.
"Estonian Customs Act
Article 7. Customs insignia
The Customs Board has a revenue flag, a customs badge and a customs emblem.
The Government of the Republic shall approve the description of the revenue flag, customs badge and customs emblem.
The Minister of Finance shall establish the procedure for using the
revenue flag, customs badge and customs emblem.

"The existing Citizenship and Migration Board is a result of several incorporations and reorganisations. The history of the Board goes back to the year 1918 when on November 26 the newly-born Republic of Estonia adopted two important acts: the Regulation of the Land Council on the Citizenship of the Estonian Democratic Republic and the Regulation of the Provisional Government on Travel Passports, Entering Visas in Passports and the Issue of Travel Licences. The first document can be considered as the first citizenship act and the second as a predecessor of the Aliens Act. That is why the Citizenship and Migration Board celebrates its anniversary on November 26. The Board has its own symbols - a flag, coat of arms and logo".

The flag is square, yellow with a blue chevron and the three blue lions with red tongue from the national coat of arms below the chevron.
