Adoption of the flag

In 1997 the Royal Norwegian Navy rank of Flaggkommandør, literally translated as Flag Commander but equivalent to the rank of Commodore, was introduced to replace the former rank Kommandør I (the rank of Kommandør II is now just Kommandør). Though the rank contains the designation "flag", it has so far been without a distinct rank flag. This has now been corrected. As of 1 January 1999 the rank flag of a Flag Commander (Commodore) is the Norwegian war ensign with one white star in the canton. A Rear Admiral has two stars, a Vice Admiral three stars, and a full Admiral fours stars. The change was made to adapt to the conventions among Norway's allies.
