In the year 1828 measures about the Standard and the Admiral's flag were issued, the former became yellow, had the imperial eagle and a yellow-black-white-red adorned edge (Siegel 1912).

In 1915 the imperial flag were changed in colour. The flag of the emperor and empress was called "purpur" and the illustration is a violet color very close to the Romanian royal flag as illustrated in Znamierowski (1999) "World Encyclopedia", p.58. The flag of the archdukes is an orangeish color, slightly redder than the bottom stripe of the current German flag, very much like that of the flag of the emperor (of the Holy Roman Empire) on Znamierowski (1999), p.55.

Pennant Red over White over Red, ratio 1:100. Uncertain if the narrowing of the pennant eventually leaves only the middle
stripe or if each stripe tapers so they stay equally wide.
