Field & Boat Flag, the Secretary of War (1923 & 1931), as depicted in Army Regulation 840-10 (which can be found on-line at www.army.mil/usapa/epubs/pdf/r840_10.pdf ):
The field and boat flag of the Secretary of War were exactly the same as the field flag of the Secretary of the Army, except for its dimensions. The field and boat flag was made of wool bunting, 3 feet at the hoist by 4 feet 9 inches on the fly. (The same material and dimensions applied to all field and boat flags authorized by Army regulations.) For Assistant Secretaries of War, the field of the flag was white and the star were red (identical to the current field flag of the Undersecretary of the Army).
