The Commodore’s Flag shall be the Association Burgee with swallowtail. The Vice-Commodore’s Flag, a similar flag with one black ball in the lower inner canton, and the Rear Commodore’s Flag, a similar flag with two black balls in the lower inner canton and placed horizontally."

Black balls in the blue lower hoist quarter, didn't seem very likely to me. I've therefore looked around at their site a bit, and found this newsletter for November 2018. At it's first page, we see the three flag officers with their pennants. They show the balls in the canton (upper hoist quarter), which is white, rather than in the lower quarter, which is blue.

Apparently, the officers' flags according to the constitution differ a bit from those in actual use.
