Chief of Staff of the Navy

This is the flag that is hoisted on ships to mark the presence of the Chief (positional flag, as distinct to car flag covered previously).
The flag is square, Navy blue with white anchor in fly base and white stars in canton. Number of stars depend of the rank of the officer holding the position, and the possible number of stars in either 3 (Vice Admiral) or 2 (Division Admiral, comparable with rank of Rear Admiral).
The car flag of the Chief of Staff of the Navy is different.
