56:107 by Željko Heimer
The Minister of Defence
This flag was formerly that of the Minister of the Navy. The emblem remains the same: Crowned anchor with a bar and rope/chain.
The state flag with a square white panel over the middle of the cross containing the anchor as in the auxiliary naval ensign. (this crowned anchor must be the badge of the Ministry of Defence). Supposing that the flag would be used mostly on naval ships only, the dark red would be the rule.

Politikens Flagbog labels this flag "Fosvarsministeriet" (the Ministry of Defence), assigning it to the whole organisation, rather than just the one man. It agrees with our image, but has a blue anchor with a fatter, and white, cross bar, and a red rope coiling quite differently, though still giving the same impression.

Flaggenbuch (1939) shows a 56:107 flag, the design of which we know already, however, the anchor artwork is here yet different from the other sources we have (and is all golden, no blue). The caption provide a long list who use these ensign.

The state flag with two white staffs in saltire in the first quarter. Whether these staffs are sceptres or marshal batons, I can't say, but in Album des Pavillons (2000) they are considerably different from what is shown here (much thinner).
