Commander of a group

[Commander of a group]by Željko Heimer

The pennant is made of the naval flag with a red, swallow-tailed fly.
Indentation seems to be about 4/3 of hoist.
The proportion of the flag is 3:5.

Masthead pennant

[Masthead pennant]by Željko Heimer

The pennant is a long swallow-tailed pennant with the naval flag in hoist and the national flag in fly part. The vertical proportions seem to be 1:2:3:2:1 (pennant top to fly top end : fly top end to red stripes: red stripe: red stripe to bottom fly end: bottom fly end to bottom of the flag).
Indentation looks like about 4 hoist sizes.
The proportion of the pennant is approximately 1:12.

According to an official illustration I have on file, the masthead pennant of Azerbaijan is wrong. This particular illustration - part of a series defining the naval flags of 1999 - is done in an 'artistic' manner and so is useless for specification purposes, however, it clearly shows that the masthead pennant narrows towards the fly to approx one-third the hoist, rather than of even width throughout as we show it (or indeed to two-thirds as in the Album). It further shows the naval flag at the head as being in proportions of about 2:3, and the indentation at the fly as being about 1.25 times the width.

Colour specifications

The colour approximations given in Album des Pavillons [pay00] are:

The images shown above were made approximating those colours to the closest BS (browser-safe) colour. The two blue shades seem on the screen very similar, though yet clearly different, but the difference is much more observable in printing since the Process blue is more lively than in on-screen look.
