Overview

The flags shown on this page are supposed to be obsolete because they are not shown on the last release of Album des Pavillons [pay00]. The flags might have been suppressed but the ranks themselves might have disappeared from the Greek Navy. Due to the scarcity of source, it was not possible to determine precisely when these flags became obsolete.

Admiral (and jack)

Admiral's ensignby Zeljko Heimer

The flag of an Admiral was a square blue flag with a white cross.

This flag is shown in National Geographic (1917) [gmc17] and Kannik (1956) [kan56]. The Royal Navy Handbook of Signalling (1913) [rhs13] shows it as the flag of an Admiral only.

This flag is still used as the jack. At present, the flag of an Admiral has four six-pointed stars, one in each quarter.


Vice Admiral

This flag is shown in National Geographic (1917) [gmc17] , Kannik (1956) [kan56], and Album des Pavillons, edition 1995 [pie95]. The Royal Navy Handbook of Signalling (1913) [rhs13] stated that a Vice Admiral had the same flag as the Ministers.
