Blue field with a white star above a shield of eleven vertical alternanting red and white stripes. (Source: [pay]) Note: the same flag appears as presidential flag in Flaggenbuch (1939-1941) [neu92].

The flag once used as presidential apparently remained in use as the “military authorities”ʼ flag, after the distinctive presidential flag was introduced. What exactly were (are) those authorities, and how this flag was used (ensign, signal flag, rank flag?), it is not clear to me. As for other flags, I question if the flag is used currently.

Encyclopaedia Universalis Yearbook 1998 says:
Officially, all armed forces were disbanded in February 1997. The 10 000 members of the ECOMOG peace-keeping force shall withdraw in February 1998.Ivan Sache, 10 May 2002
Jaume Olle informed me about yet another flag from Liberia, but what he has is only a photo that does not allow for reconstruction. The flag is blue with somekind of seal in the middle. Jaume names it the Legislature flag. Who can provide more information?

Roundel of red white and blue with white star in the middle and square “wings” of red - white - blue - white - red. Obviously, it was patterned after the US marking, just as the flag was some century and half earlier. [cos98] claims that the air units of Liberian army were formed in 1976, and used the flag as the marking, and that the current pattern was introduced in 1986.
