From Album 2000 [pay00] - Brigade Commander (1:5) - Pennat consisting of the national flag at hoist and tapering swallow-tailed white part at fly, contining two red stars (of the same shape as in the previous flags) next to each other.
Note by the picture refers to Balton markings, which are, I guess, used insead of the national markings when appropriate.

Division Commander


image by Željko Heimer, 15 May 2002

From Album 2000 [pay00] - Division Commander (1:5) - Same as previous, but with single star. It may be noted that "division" here is not the division in the meaning of "western" terminology consisting of several brigades, but the "eastern" division - naval unit of size less then a brigade. Similar in many other Central and Eastern European countries.
