Carr, in Flags of the World, 1961 [car61], p. 266, writes about the President's Flag:

The President's Flag is like the naval ensign, but bears in the first quarter what is best described as an heraldic "cross-pattée", in blue, charged with a yellow "fylfot" or swastika-shaped cross, The Cross of Freedom - Finland's most distinguished order.
