According to L'Album 2000 [pay00] - Customs Ensign (---/-S- 2:3) - Blue enisgn with the national bicolour in the canton and yellow caducees (winged staff with two serpents) in lower fly.
I used the pattern of the caducees from the Ministry Emblem on by Jaume Olle. The embem used in Album is somewhat slightly idfferent artisticaly. I don't know if the difference is significan.

Flag According to L'Album Album 1990's issue Corr. 29 (1997) [pay97b]


by Željko Heimer, 15 May 2003

According to Album 1990's issue Corr. 29 [pay97b] - Customs Ensign - Blue Ensign with the national flag with simplified coat of arms in its midde in the canton defaced with a yellow Caducee in fly. As no image of Caducees is given, I show it as in 2000 series.
Note on the page says for this flag to be unconfirmed, especially inclusion of CoA is questionable.

Head of State Tax Administration


by Victor Lomantsov

The head of customs. Oak leaves are still there with medical staff symbol in the center.  The background is green in 1:1 ratio. The fringe is gold.  Introduced in 2001, date unknown.
Zachary Harden, 17 November 2001

It is not a medical staff, but Mercury staff, as see by the wings in the upper part - the symbol of trade and merchant-craft, consequently in many places also became the symbol of such services that have supervision on trade - customs and taxation services and like.
