Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces

Togo, Chief of Staff 1:1~  Image by Željko Heimer, 21 May 2000

The flag of the Chief of General Staff of the Togo Armed Forces (Chef de l'État-Major des Forces Armées) follows the same design as the flag of the President of Togo but with different detail contained in the red canton.  This has a golden emblem consisting of two rifles in saltire, an anchor palewise and an emblem standing symbolically for wings, with over all a white five-pointed star.

Commander in Chief of the Navy

The flag of the Commander in Chief of the Navy (Commandant de la Marine) is of the same design as the previous flags.  In this instance the emblem in the red canton consists of two golden anchors in saltire and a white star superimposed in the middle of the canton. This star seems to be notably smaller than the one in the national flag (being about the same height as one stripe).

War Pennant

Togo, War Pennant 1:7~  Image by Željko Heimer, 21 May 2000

The Togolese war pennant (flamme de guerre) is a long triangular pennant of green over yellow with red panel at hoist.

The ratio of the pennant is given as 1:7~ in Correction 26 and 1:6.6~ in the original issue of L'Album 1990.  The red field is given as less the 1/10 of the fly in the original L'Album 1990, and is not quoted in correction 26. The image in correction 26 shows a pennant of ratio about 1:11 (my estimate), with red field being of the same width as the hoist (but that would agree with "less the 1/10").
