Flag of the Navy (ceremonial and indoor usage)

Navy flag
image by Željko Heimer, 04 Nov 2002

Album 1995 [pie95] says ratio is ≅5:7 and shows a blue flag with the emblem of the Navy in the middle and thin yellow orle (line near the border). The naval emblem consists of the shield of the national coat of arms infront of the two crossed anchors, at the top the Sun and above all a ribbon with inscription «MARINA DE GUERRA DEL PERU». This flag may be still in use; it is not included in Album 2000 [pay00] as it does not comes into its scope.
Željko Heimer, 04 Nov 2002

It’s depicted in a book about the Peruvian Navy, El Mar de Grau y la Marina de Guerra del Peru [pcy87], of 1987. How likely that it is still in use?

Alternate version

alt. Navy flag
image by Jaume Ollé, 17 Nov 2002

I received already infos from Peru, including the flag of the Navy. Unfortunately those infos will be available in my Bulletin [frp] only in 2001 (next millenium).
Jaume Ollé, 01 Dec 1999

The main difference is the color of the anchors — yellow in [pie95], white in this version. The rest is mainly issues of detail depiction, for the emblem. Flagwise the ratio difference may be relevant: ≅5:7 vs. 2:3.

Jack

Jack
image by Željko Heimer, 31 Oct 2002

According to Album 2000 [pay00], 1:1 white flag with red border and the coat of arms in the middle. The border is shown as wide 1/10 of the hoist (cf. 1/6 in Flaggenbuch [neu39]). The height of the emblem is about 1/3 of hoist (cf. Flaggenbuch [neu39] about 1/2).
Željko Heimer, 31 Oct 2002

As of 1939 and 1917

Old jack
image by Željko Heimer, 05 Nov 2002

Same as the one on the Album 2000 [pay00] but for the measures of the border, being 1/6 of the hoist, and the height of the emblem, being 1/2 of the hoist.
Željko Heimer, 05 Nov 2002

National Geographic 1917 Flag Number [gmc17] #672 shows the jack as same as Flaggenbuch.

Masthead Pennant

Masthead Pennant
image by Željko Heimer, 01 Nov 2002

Album 2000 [pay00] says ratio is ≅2:9 and shows a white triangular pennant with wide red border around all edges and in the middle a black horizontally set anchor. This is totally didferent to any other previous source, and therefore probably rather new.
Željko Heimer, 31 Oct 2002

As of 1995

Masthead Pennant 1995
image by Željko Heimer, 04 Nov 2002

Album 1995 [pie95] shows a ≅1:7 triangular pennant vertically divided in red-white-red with a black horizontal anchor in the middle. This is a “transitional version” between the 1917 and 1939 on one side and 2000 on the other. There is at least small question of validity.

As of 1939 and 1917

Masthead Pennant 1939
image by Željko Heimer, 05 Nov 2002

Flaggenbuch [neu39] shows a ≅1:20 triangular pennant vertically divided in red-white-red. The hoist size of the pennant is given as 9, but no other unit is shown. Oddly. Maybe only the hoist size is prescribed and length might be different, but I don’t think that Neubecker means here 9 cm, since otherwise when he gives absolute units he always write "cm" beside the number.
by Željko Heimer, 05 Nov 2002

National Geographic 1917 Flag Number [gmc17] says:

669. Commision Pennant.

Same as Flaggenbuch (≅1:20).

Navy Aircraft Marking

Fin flash of Peru
image by anon.

The Album 2000 [pay00] says that the Navy Aircraft Marking is the Civil flag on fin. (Identical to the Airforce Aircraft Marking.)
Željko Heimer, 04 Nov 2002

Book [c2e98] shows this marking.

Version with anchor

Naval fin flash of Peru
image by Željko Heimer and António Martins, 20 Mar 2008

Book [whe86] shows a regular flash but charged with anchor on white stripe (as seen also at this WAF page). (This photo at the Scramble.NL website shows a fin flash but it too small for being charged with an anchor.)

Navy Roundel

Roundel
image by Željko Heimer, 04 Nov 2002

Red white red roundel with black anchor overall (but under two central disks), according to the Album 2000 [pay00]. (Based on the Airforce Aircraft roundel.)
Željko Heimer, 04 Nov 2002

Books [c2e98] and [whe86] show this marking.
