Ministry of the Interior

[Ministry of the Interior since 1917 (Thailand)]
Flag adopted 1917
The blue border matches the original source's background and is not part of the flag
from the Singha Beer source

From the Singha Beer source:

Flag of the Interior Ministry (B.E.2460) [1917 AD]
This flag is similar to the "Trairanga" except for the fact that the figure of a "Singha" standing on a yellow platform in the centre.

In B.E.2460, the year the "Trairanga" became the National flag following a special Royal Decree, all departmental flags adopted the design of the "Trairanga", but with the Insign[i]a of each department in the middle. This was carried out in accordance with a special Royal command which was published in the Royal Gazette.

The governmental departments adopted different flags after the Second World War and I am not sure whether the national flag with emblem adopted for the departments in 1917 are now back in use.

Harbour Department 1911

[Harbour Department 1911 (Thailand)]
The blue border matches the original source's background and is not part of the flag
from the Singha Beer source

From the Singha Beer source:

The Harbour Departmental Flag (B.E.2454) [1911 AD]
This is a red flag with a white elephant in full caparison standing on a raised dais facing the flagpole. In the top right-hand corner is a yellow crown above a black anchor with a yellow cord dangling from it.

The design of most departmental flag[s] is not specified by any of the Royal Decree[s] concerning flags. In B.E.2440 [1897 AD], however, a decree was issued stipulating that the Royal Yacht's flag were to be used with the insignia of each specific department or unit, on the front in the top left hand corner. Royal permission had to be granted before anyone was allowed to use the flag.
