About the Finnish naval rank flags

These Finnish naval pennants are described in a permanent regulation issued by the personnel office of the Finnish Defence Forces. Latest version of this document dates from 4 May 1993. You can find the Finnish text on my web site: http://www.student.oulu.fi/~oraivio/lippulait_4.html#4a.
