Album des Pavillons (2000) shows a flag captioned Customs Ensign. Differences are that it is swallow tailed 1:2,
indentation 90 degrees, a lighter blue field (approxim. Pantone 299c), with 14 visible embattlements and 14 gaps, and the
indentations touches the white stripe just where the 15th brick would come.
Might it be that the swallow tailed version is to be used at sea, while the rectangular for hoisting on land?

Rectangular flag is for hoisting in ports and customs check points, and dependencies of the customs service.
Swallow tailed 1:2 flag is for ships of the customs agencies.
