The jack - a square version of the national flag - is used by the Royal Norwegian Navy.

I have seen a Norwegian cadet ship use the Oslo flag as a jack when at anchor in San Francisco.
Also, see The Flag Bulletin # 179 p. 33 "In Scandinavian countries, where the jack closely resembles the ensign, merchant vessels often use the flag of the home port as a jack, a pleasant contribution to flag usage."
