Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force

From the Singha Beer source:

The Flag of the Commander-in-Chief of the Airforce (B.E.2482) [1939 AD]
This is a rectangular blue flag, its height measuring 5/2 of its length. In the middle stands a flaming yellow Chakkra, flanked on either side by a pair of yellow wings. Above the Chakkra itself stands the Royal Crown.

The flag first made an appearance following a Royal Decree, issued in B.E.2479 [1936 AD], concerning flags. It was known as the "Flag of Commander-in-Chief of the Airforce". Nowadays, however, use of the flag has been discontinued.

Again the description seems to imply ratio 2:5, whereas the image shows a 2:3 (or rather 17:25) flag.

This site seems to indicate that the Commander-in-Chief's flag is still in use and that it may have a small ornamental border.

It does have a yellow border. My former website (now sadly closed down) used to have a photo of a Change of Command ceremony which clearly showed the yellow border.
