BACKGROUND: Naval flags, Command pennants and distinctive identification pennants had a long tradition which was retained, with modifications, during the Third Reich, with most of the modified pennants being introduced in 1934. The Flotilla pennant was flown from the tip of the main mast on a vessel and indicated the Leader of a Torpedo Boat or Minesweeper was present but held a rank lower then Konteradmiral.
