The 1917 National Geographic Magazine article [gmc17] shows a different design, based on the state flag. Do we have any idea when these flags were adopted and when were replaced with current set (and if there was something in between)?

Flag of admiral: This is one of the five Dominican Republic naval flags in Flaggenbuch (1939-1941) [neu39]. (The others are war ensign and jack; civil ensign; flag of the Generalissime; and flag of rear-admiral, head of a flotilla).
