Port commander's flag, two versions, left, after Album des Pavillons[pay00], right, after Flaggenbuch [neu92] - Images by Željko Heimer, 17 April 2003

The port commander's flag as rectangular, white with a red fouled anchor in the center and a canton bordered in yellow, containing a five-pointed star outlined in res.
Album des Pavillons and Flaggenbuch have both fairly similar anchors, including the way the cable is curling. However, the canton of the flag shown in Album is smaller and more squarish, with a thinner yellow border that is shown only on the inner edges of the canton (there is no yellow border along the hoist and the upper edge of the canton), while Flaggenbuch shows a yellow border all around the canton of the flag. The star in Album is voided white, while Flaggenbuch has a yellow star, both stars being bordered red. The star position is not the same: Flaggenbuch has the star pointing downwards, which is different from Album.

Port inspection

Port inspection's flag - Image by Željko Heimer, 19 April 2003

The port inspection's flag shown in Flaggenbuch (1939) [neu92] is rectangular, with a white rectangle with a red border and with red letters "L.K". The red border is 1/4 of the hoist width, and the letters are just as high. Individual letter length is 9/10 of that size, while the width of the lines forming the letters (and dot diameter) is 3/10.
Modern sources do not show this flag, which might be obsolete.

The quarantine flag, as shown by Flaggenbuch (1939) [neu92] and Pedersen (1971) [ped71], is yellow with the Turkish national flag in canton.

This design is confirmed by a flag seen in 2004 in Bodrum, while a flag seen on 24 April 2014 in Kuşadası had a smaller canton.
