Jack

Jack
by Željko Heimer, 16 Jun 2001

Album 2000 [pay00] shows a blue flag with white disk with the coat of arms surrounded with 17 white stars. The disk seems to be 2/3 of hoist and stars are given as pointing “inwards” towards the center of the disk.
Željko Heimer, 16 Jun 2001

[kan56] gives only 12 stars; Gresham Carrʼs Flags of the World, 1956 [car56], gives 13; and both [bar65] (1965) and [bcr81] give (like [pie90]) 17. According to [ped80], the jack is like the state flag.

Incorrect reports

The Album 1995 [pie90] gives the jack as a white ensign with the in canton (without arms) and yellow anchor in fly, which most sources show for the presidential flag, while it shows for the presidential flag what most sources show for the jack. Was it error in Album 1995?).

In Znamierowskiʼs Encyclopedia [zna99], p. 95, jack = national flag (sic!).

Admiral flag
by Željko Heimer, 17 Jun 2001 (source: [gmc17])

The 1917 National Geographic Magazine article [gmc17] shows a different design, based on the state flag. Do we have any idea when these flags were adopted and when were replaced with current set (and if there was something in between)?
