According to Album des Pavillons (2000), the custom's flag is still
in use, as well as the flag of the General Inspector of Customs, a
green field with a yellow saltire and the canton of the national flag
in the middle.

It's never been the KMT Customs Flag (China). It's the
Inspector General's flag since Jan. 14, 1929 and also became the
Minister of Finance of the Republic of China (Taiwan) after 1949.

The ratio of Inspector-General's flag is almost 3:4. (115.5*160cm)
Tai Yu-liang (Dai Yuliang), 25 March 2014
Actually the old Inspector-General's flag, in the proportion specified
above is now used by the
Minister of Finance.
Moreover, the Inspector General has been renamed Director General since 1991, and uses a different flag.

This flag was really flown over Taiwan also. After 1949, Mr. Lester Knox
Little, the last non-Chinese Inspector General, moved to Taiwan with the KMT
Government, and this flag still represented IGC. But later in early 1950's, it
became to represent Minister of Finance.
