Port commander

The flag is rectangular (2:3), white with a red fouled anchor in the middle and a yellow bordered canton containing a red outlined five-pointed star.

The Album and the Flaggenbuch have both fairly similar anchors, including the way the cable is curling. However, the canton of the flag shown in the Album is smaller and more squarish, with a thinner yellow border that is shown only on the inner canton edges (i.e., there is no yellow border along the hoist and the upper edge of the canton), while the Flaggenbuch shows a yellow border all around the canton of the flag. The star in the Album is voided white, while the Flaggenbuch has a yellow star, both stars being bordered red. The star position is not the same: the Flaggenbuch has the star pointing downwards, which is different from the Album.

Port inspection

[Port control]by Zeljko Heimer

The flag is rectangular, with a white rectablge with a red border and with red letters "L.K". The red border is 1/4 of the hoist width, and the letters are just as high. Individual letter length is 9/10 of that size, while the width of the lines forming the letters (and dot diameter) is 3/10.
