Overview

Interestingly, even though the Marine Corps has always been part of the Navy, it used the Army flag during the Battle of Quemoy (Aug 23, 1958). To distinguish itself from the Army proper, a small blue rectangular flag with a white anchor was flown above the Army flag - hence a 'double flag' similar to some earlier Nationalist Chinese flags. The flag currently used by the Marine Corps is similar to the USMC flag.

This flag should be taken as the variant of currently used one, according to the official text specifications, although the drawings still show the Kuomintang Emblem today.
