Overview

A. Basov, vexillologist from Belarus, sent me information on Frontier Guard flags of Belarus: On 20 march 2000, Commander of Frontier-Guard of Belarus adopted flags for Frontier Guard. They were hoisted on april, 1, 2000 on river ships.

Concering [pay00] - Recently Victor Lomantsov reported on the newly adopted set of flags for Frontier Guard. I guess they were adopted too late to be included in this issue of Album.

Concering Zach Harden's images, Possibly. However, maybe they are not so simple - first why the difference in name bethween the firt two here and the third (broad- pennant and pennant)? It may be a hint that the shape of the pennants if not the same. There are several versions of pennants used in similar manner by Russian services, from which the Belarus FG certainly got the idea about the pennants. Some of those pannats are with stright upper and lower edge, while other have "contacting" egdes in the fly part. Also the size of indentation of the swallow tail may varry.
Some of the possible versions could be seen at FOTW (see here, here, here and here) . Most of the pennants are similar to one at Soviet Navy, 1950-1992 (second flag pattern) but maybe the term borad pennat inidcates indeed the spaes as you have drawn. In any case, I was kind of hoping for some more detailed description.
