Flag signalling Government Member on Board

Stander für ein Mitglied der Bundesregierung oder den Herrn Bundespräsidenten

1:1, by Željko Heimer

On a square triband on a red outlined white shield is the coat of arms, with a red and white flammuly border. The flag is prescribed in size as 100 x 100 cm, the borders being 10 cm wide. The image in Album des Pavillons (2000) is not quite what I would be satisfied with - the flamullets are drawn very irregularly. There are nine white teeth along each side. The image above is what I think it should be - but it should be taken with some reserve. It is not clear if the flammulets are to be made by three "half-waves" as it is case in the military colours, or with only two "half-waves" as in the flag of flag officers.

This flag is described as "Standard for a Member of the Federal Government or the Federal President (Stander für ein Mitglied der Bundesregierung oder den Herrn Bundespräsidenten)" on the web page for the Austrian Federal Ministry for National Defence.

Flag Signalling General on Board

Stander für General

7:8~, by Željko Heimer

A white flag with the coat of arms in the middle and bordered with red and white flammulets. The flag is not 1:1 as written in Album , but 100 x 114 cm (that's very close to 7:8~), and the image in Album des Pavillons (2000) is clearly so. The flammulets here in Album are irregular, but are clearly made of two "half-waves". The width of the border is 18 cm.

1:2, by Željko Heimer
