There is a picture of the SK Ministry of National Defence. Besides the MoD flag we can see the National flag and a third one, dark red, which I don't recognize.

Division Commander

[Division Commander]
by Željko Heimer

Blue flag with two white large five-pointed stars above a wreath of leaves and flower.
The emblem on this flag is extremely similar (if not the exactly same, actually) with the rank insignia used in ROK Army for the rank of "So-jang" (O-8, Major General). The same emblem, but with stars vertically set due to the space limitations no doubt, is used by the same rank in the ROK Navy (where it is translated as Rear Admiral Upper Half, in conformance with US Navy ranks, I guess). The wreath of leaves and flower are the "National Flower of ROK".
