According to the Flag Bulletin [tfb], the naval ensign, in proportions 2:3, is horizontally divided red-black-red with, in the middle, a yellow anchor charged with a red star fimbriated yellow. In Vexilloteca [vxt], the star appears totally yellow, which is probably an error.

Decree No. 38 of 29 May 1954 changed the naval ensign to a blue flag, in proportions 3:4, with the national flag in canton, also in proportions 3:4. The Decree does not prescribe a shade of blue; the shade on the above image is as used in Vexilloteca [vxt]).
Of similar design, the naval pennant has proportions 29:100.

Decree No. 96 of 14 August 1958 changed again the naval ensign, to a white flag in proportions 2:3, with a red stripe along the lower edge (~4:1) and, on the white field, the black double-headed eagle and the red star edged in gold over his head.
Of similar design, the naval pennant has proportions 1:15.
