Golden initials LM crowned with a royal crown proper in the canton of the state ensign.
The letters 'LM' is for Landbrugsministeriet, that is Ministry of Agriculture. The flag was used by ships belonging to various services sorting under the ministry, for instance Fisheries Inspection, Biological Station, the Danish Commission for Fisheries and Oceanographic Research, and Maritime Rescue ships (to quote those mentioned in the caption in the
Flaggenbuch). As far as I can see, ships belonging to these institutions now fly the state ensign (with the white crown in the canton).

that were operated as part of the Ministry were numbered in the
Flaggenbuch: Fisheries Inspection, Biological Station, the Danish
Commission for Fisheries and Oceanographic Research, and Maritime
Rescue ships. Paige Herring reports that the ensign is not used any
more and that the white crown ensign is used by those services (in
both cases, there may be some additional pennant identifying the
service - however, we have no info on these as yet!).
