Division Commander (?)


by Zeljko Heimer, 26 August 2003

There is no such flag at Naval Ceremonial and Protocol Regulations number MAN-EC-CGA-0001-B effective since July 1st, 1997. The Pennant  with the roman number two was sent to the General Command of the Navy of Venezuela to know its meaning.
Raul Orta, 18 May 2002

In the original Album 2000 [pay00]: Division Commander (3:5) (number of unit) - Blue trapezoid pennant with white roman numeral indicating the number of the division in question, shown here as II.
The 1997 regulations do not have the matching flag - presumably this one is from some older pattern, the "title" might have been lost since.
How many divisions the Venezuelan Navy had at most? Where they all numbered sequential by Roman numbers?
Album 95 [pay] described it as similar to Album 2000 (with division number), but lighter blue.

Lieutenant

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 22 August 2003

Alférez de Navío/ Lieutenant - According to the Naval Ceremonial and Protocol Regulations number MAN-EC-CGA-0001-B effective since July 1st, 1997.
Raul Orta, 18 May 2002

According to Album 2000 Corr. 3 [pay03] - Liuetenant (2:3) - Blue triangular pennant with a white five-pointed star.
Following the logic above, this would be Lieutenant Commander not in command. Anyway is this used for all the junior officers: Lieutenant, Lieutenant junior Grade and Ensign (Teniente de navío, Teniente de fragata, alférez).

Senior Officer Afloat

(2:3)
by Zeljko Heimer, 22 August 2003

Oficial Superior Presente a Flote / Senior Officer Afloat - According to the Naval Ceremonial and Protocol Regulations number MAN-EC-CGA-0001-B effective since July 1st, 1997.
Raul Orta, 18 May 2002

According to Album 2000 Corr. 3 [pay03] - Senior Officer afloat (2:3) - Blue triangular pennant with white fouled anchor and seven five-pointed stars in an arch above it. The previous sources report a flag with simplier anchor. Was this in use before 1997? When was it adopted? Is it really wrong?
Zeljko Heimer, 22 August 2003

Flag at Original Album 2000

(3:5)
by Zeljko Heimer, 26 August 2003

In the original Album 2000 [pay00]: Senior Officer Afloat (3:5) Triangular blue pennant with white anchor in the middle. The anchor is of the same "old" pattern as in the CGN flag (except in one little details I shall come back at once). here also either it is an older pattern, or misinterpretation. The Album showes two slightly different anchors used in the CGN and SOA flags, notably the later do not include the lozengy ornament in the lower end of the anchor. I find it ususual that they are not the same, so I assumed that the SOA figure in Album might have been missing it unadvartedly. Could that be verified?
Album 95 [pay] described it as similar to Album 2000, but lighter blue.

Masthead Pennant


by Zeljko Heimer, 24 August 2003

According to Album 2000 Corr. 3 [pay03] - Masthead Pennant - Yellow over blue over red long triangular tapering pennant. Ratio is not given, the image shows it ca. 2:23~ (or 1:11~ if you preffer, which is used throughout the Album as default ratio for masthead pennant when more precise data was not available).
In Album 95 [pay], dimensions are given as 0.21x3 m that is ratio 7:100, or very much like 1:14~.
In the 1939 Flaggenbuch [neu92]: Masthead pennant - Tricolour pennant but not triangular but rectangular and swallowtailed (without indication of the total length and depth of the indentation at fly).
Zeljko Heimer, 24 and 28 August 2003

Masthead Pennan in 1926 Flaggenbuch


by Zeljko Heimer, 6 September 2003

In the 1926 Flaggenbuch: Masthead pennant - Unlike the latter pennants, this one is vertically divided in yellow- blue-red. The length is not clear, as it is indicated much longer by a tear in the middle of the red part of the image.
