Blue flag with four white chakras, one in each corner. The change from three chakras to four for an Admiral was made in 1979, so this is how old this flag is, presumably. Previously the four-chakras flag, additionally defaced with an emblem in the middle, was used by Naval Marshal or Grossadmiral (depending on the source, but obviously for a higher ranks that we may today translate as Admiral of the Fleet maybe). Flaggenbuch shows the yellow naval badge (as in naval jack) to be set in the middle while Singha beer describes two crowned crossed white anchors.Željko Heimer, 30 Mar 2003
