According to Album 2000 [pay00]
- Marine Police Ensign (---/-S- 1:2). Album 2000 shows a weird
flag, pink (or light purple better said) with a large rectangular
purple patch containing the white badge. The Corr. 2 [pay02] correct the flag to blue
field with white badge.
I leave some drawing lines black in the badge as in Album, but I presume that showing them blue would be equally good, if not better. I don't remember if Armand told us reason why the image was corrected - was it simply found erroneous or was the flag actually changed. I presume that it might be the former, and that the "pink" flag was never used.
Regarding the caption - is this indeed used as an ensign on police boats? Instead of the national flag? (If not then word ensign here is not used rightly and ---/S- is not appropriate.)
The badge is inscribed "ROYAL ST. LUCIA DEFENCE FORCE", but I was unable to find anything about it on the Net. Does it indeed exists? Is the Marine Police (about which there are some little mention on the Net) part of the Defence Force?
