Hungarian Danube Police

Hungarian Danube Police (RendorsĂŠg Duna) - The patrol boats of the Danube Police in Budapest fly the national ensign (without the coat of arms) and a white pennant charged with a blue lozenge. The same pennant flies over the main building of the Police. The blue lozenge is also painted on the hull of the boats, with a number, also in blue, in the middle. There is no number on the pennants. Additionaly, the Hungarian Police (Rendo''rseg) has arms made of a shield with vertical hungarian colours, charged with golden sword and scales. The arms appear on Police buildings, vehicles, and uniforms.

There seems to be a non-coincidental similarity between this pennant and the Croatian River Police pennant. The Hungarian pennant, however, is not 1:2 in proportion but rather 3:5 and the shape of its lozenge is different from the Croatian pennant shown in the Album des Pavillons [pay].

Pilot Flag 1919-1944


image by Željko Heimer, 6 November 2001

The flag is white with a brown cabled blue anchor topped with the crown and with a blue canton containing a large letter K.
Željko Heimer

Flaggenbuch [neu92] regarding to Hungary (pages 177 and 178): Pilot Flag (Schiffsbegleitungsflagge. Wird von dem geleiteten Schiff am Bugspriet gesetzt.) - White suqare flag with blue cabled anchor topped with the St. Stephen's crown in proper colours and with blue letter K in canton. 80 x 80 (cm?). Anchor size 38 x 28, letter K sized 15 x 20, width of vertical streak 4 (written dimmensions, but certainly the image looks as if it is in fact 3).
The previous image of this flag was drawn by me after description, and is incorrect in several details - most obviously I made canton blue with white letter.
