by Jaume Olle, 31 August 2001

It is not known if was adopted 22-3-1918 or in this date it was only regulated the old flag. But in any case, it was in use short after coup d'etat dated 19-4-1918.
Jaume Olle, 25 August 2001

Naval ensign. Philippe follow here the image according Klimberick (or Klimwick) but the scandinavian type cross is rejected by Tembricky. Not quoted neither pictured by Montells. Ratio 5:9.
Jaume Olle, 31 August 2001

At http://www.heritage.com.ua/istorija/geraldika/RIZNE/GrechPrap.htm, located by Dov Gutterman, there is an article of well-known ukrainian vexillologist and heraldist A.Grechilo. He describes national symbols of Ukraine. Article is written still in communist period (1989). Flag of Ukraine in that time was the Soviet red flag with a blue stripe at the bottom. The author proves, that the national symbolics is not "bad".
This flag described as navy ensign of Ukraine adopted in 1918, 16, July.
Victor Lomantsov, 1 July 2002

This flag wrongly appears at http://www.uarmy.com.ua/ALMANAH/ALMANAH03/article12/art12.html as "Flag of Navy Minister, 1918". The flag which is wrongly described there as "Navy Ensign of Ukraine, adopted 18, July, 1918" is really the Flag of Navy Minister.
Victor Lomantsov, 6 July 2002

In 1918 hetmanate navy ensign (officially): BLUE (synij) cross and   - yellow - light blue (blakytnyj) bicolor in canton.
