Commander in Chief

Flag of the commander in chief.
Victor Lomantsov, 10 January 2001

According to L'Album 2000 [pay00] - Commander-in-Chief (President) (2:3) - The national bicolour with the simplified CoA in the middle. Presumably his flag is used to indicate the presence of the President on board ships (on the main mast, presumably). In Album 1990's issue Corr. 29 [pay97b] it appears as Minister of Defence

This image is based on navy flags chart (navy flags since 2000) from the book and was translated by Andriy Grechvlo as: "Naval flag of Ministry of Defence".

Flag of the Minister of Defence.
Victor Lomantsov, 8 January 2001

According to L'Album 2000 [pay00] - Minister of Defence (2:3) - Similar to the holiday naval ensign (white flag with cotized blue cross and the national bicolour in canton) defaced with the simplified CoA over the center.
The flag is different from the holiday ensign in that that it includes a white fimbriation between the bicolour and the cotize of the cross.

Standard

The Navy Commander flag is actually a gonfalon as seen here, also established by this same Decree, Decree No. 705 of September 3, 2009.

Esteban Rivera, 4 July 2014

This flags is a standard, to indicate owners presence somewhere (on land, typically), while the upper flag is a naval signal to be hoisted at mainmast (or other prescribed site) when certain dignitary is on board. The standarts just too complex to be used as naval signals. They are also, I guess, to be made as unique flags (just as standards would be) as the inticate ornamentation surely indicate.

I visited Museum of Ukrainian Armed Forces in Kiev  in January 2008 and took photos of flags and bought some Ukrainian flags books issued in 2007.
This Standard of the CinC of the Navy is based on those.

Nozomi has sent me a photo of the emblem to improve it, but the blue in the photo looks much darker than it did in the first source, and the fimbriation of the Ukrainian national flag canton differs also.

Flag According to L'Album Album 1990's issue Corr. 29 (1997) [pay97b]


image by Željko Heimer, 15 May 2003

According to Album 1990's issue Corr. 29 [pay97b] - Naval Region Commander - White flag with blue cotized cross and two fivepointed blue stars in canton. Album does have the image but description that reads "avec deux etoiles accolees". I think that the last word means something like "next to each other", i.e. horizontally layed.
