From the Singha Beer source:
The Flag of the Naval Commander-in-ChiefThe image is identical to the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy flag in Flaggenbuch 1939.
The base of this dark blue flag is two thirds of its length. In the middle stands a yellow anchor threaded through a flaming yellow Chakkra, on top of which is a Crown also in yellow.
Launched in B.E.2479 [1936 AD] during the reign of King Rama VIII, the flag resembles the one in use at the present time.

Blue flag with a yellow naval badge, the same one as used in the jack, a crowned anchor passing though a chakra. In Album 2000 the caption is "Chief of Naval Staff," but it is a matter of translation, I guess.Željko Heimer, 30 Mar 2003
