Overview

According to <www.rankinsignia.info>: General ranks in the Estonian Army are general, lieutenent-general, major-general and brigadier. Navy has only one admiral rank: rear- admiral (equal to major-general) and Air Force has only one general rank: major-general.
I guess that there is no rank flag for general because the only full general in active service is the commander-in-chief. At least this is the system in the Finnish Defence Forces and I bet Estonia follows the same practice.

So the CinC flag is as a rule used by a (the) general, holding highest rank in the military. Next in hierarchy would be Lt-Gen flag (one with yelow stripe at top). For the lowest flag officers rank there are two flags - in Navy flag for Rear-Admiral (whithout yellow borders) and in Army and Air Force for Major-General (with yellow stripe below).
