Cuba in Flaggenbuch (1939)

Flaggenbuch [gfb39] shows under 'Kuba' the following flags:
- Standard of the State President. (see: 'Former Presidential flag').
- National flag, also used as war and civil ensign.
- Naval Jack, similar to jack currently in use.
- Flag of the 4 September 1939.
- Ensign of the State Secretary for War and Navy. Similar to the flag attributed to 'Secretary of Navy', but without star. Considering a flag height of 24, the height of the anchor is 12, the outer blue border has a width of 2 and the white inner border a width of 1.
- Ensign of the Chief of Naval Staff. Similar to the preceding one but forked, so that the main field (excluding the forked part) is a square, and without the white inner border.
- Ensign of the Chief of a Naval District. Similar to the ensign currently in use.
- The five triangular ensigns currently in use, with the same allocations.
- Masthead pennant, similar to the one currently in use.
- Ensign of the Observation and Guidance Vessels.
- Ensign for Doctor on Duty.
- Quarantine flag, slightly different from Quarantine Flag sent by Zeljko: the anchor and cross are blue, the star white, and theemblem is skewed to the fly.
- Pilot Flag: white P on a black field.

Secretary of the Navy


by Zeljko Heimer, 3 June 2001

Secretary of the Navy (l don't know if secretary is the equivalent to Minister or Vice-minister), blue with white lines near border and anchor with star.
Jaume Olle', 2 July 1997

Album 2000 [pay00] shows Minister of Defence - Blue flag with white orle and white anchor in the middle. Similar flag was reported by Jaume for Secretary of the Navy with addition of a white star over the anchor. When was this used and in what relation to Minister of Defence?......

Chief of the Navy

(3:4)
by Zeljko Heimer, 3 June 2001

Blue with white anchor,
Jaume Olle', 2 July 1997

Also Jaume reported a blue flag with anchor for the Chief of the Navy, not found in Album [pay00] either. National Geographic, 1917 [geo17] gives this flag of the Secretary of Navy, though. Both those images are set to 3:4 ratio though in the sources they are not so.)

Chief of Naval Staff

(3:4)
by Zeljko Heimer, 3 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Chief of Naval Staff (3:4) - Blue flag with white orle and four white stars one in each corner of the orle. Maybe a better tranlsation of the title would be Chief of the General Staff of the Navy.

by Zeljko Heimer, 3 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Rear Admiral (3:4) - Blue flag with two white stars vertically set.

Chief of a Naval District

(3:4)
by Zeljko Heimer, 6 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Chief of a Naval District (3:4) - White swallow tailed rectangular penannt with red edges along top and bottom and a red anchor off-cenetered to hoist. The indentation on fly side apears to be 1/4 of the hoist, the vertical axis of the anchos is more or less on 1/3 of length from hoist, while the red borders are about 1/7 of hoist each.

Division Commander: Lieutenant Commander or above

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 6 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Division Commander: Lieutenant Commander or above (2:3) - Blue triangular pennant with white anchor near hoist. The [geo17] showes this same flag captioned "Cuba Captain of Fleet" under figure 473. Probably with increase of the fleet this flag was transfered for lower level commanders today.

Second-in-Command: Lieutenant Commander or above

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 6 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Second-in-command: Lieutenant Commander or above (2:3) - Red triangular pennant with white anchor near hoist.

Division Commander: Lieutenant or below

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 6 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Division Commander: Lieutenant or below (2:3) - White triangular pennant with blue border along outer edges. The blue border does not seems to be of equal width allong the whole pennant, weather this is intentional or not (I mean, weather this is error in Album or not) the difference is quite visible, as could be seen on my image, too. The height of each of the blue edges along hoist is 1/6 of the hoist (i.e. totaling in 1/3). The distance from the fly end of the white trangle to the fly end of the pennant is also 1/3 of hoist.

by Zeljko Heimer, 6 June 2001

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Second-in-Command: Lieutenant or below (2:3) - White triangular pennant with red border along outer edges. Same pattern as previous flag .
