The present jack has actually been in use since the 1930's.
According to Kari K. Laurla: "Suomalainen päällikkyysmerkki, Collegium Heraldicum
Fennicum, Vantaa 1986", the jack was adopted at the same time as the
rank flags were changed, i.e. on the 18th August,
Marco Pribilla, 30 August and 23 September 2001
The Flaggenbuch (1939) [neu39] construction shows
the two squares as 51 within 88 ((37+102+37):(37+102+37))
- while Album des pavillions gives 58 within 100 that makes difference less the
1%. There may be a further difference in the artistic representation of the coat
