Notes
 

The naval flags adopted by the Republic of China in 1928 are still in use by the Republic of China (Taiwan). The ensign, jack and commissioning pennant remain unchanged. Some revisions, however, have been made to the rank flags and command pennants. For the rank of Admiral First Class (equivalent to a five-star US Navy fleet admiral) an additional flag was introduced, with a yellow stripe along the upper edge. The adoption date for this flag is uncertain. The commodore's broad pennant was abolished when that rank was discontinued. Today there are two swallowtailed pennants in use: tapered with horizontal red stripes along the upper and lower edges for squadron commanders, and the old senior officer's pennant.

The ceremonial color of the Navy Honor Guard is of the standard pattern for naval ships and units: blue with gold fringe, bearing the badge of the Navy, with the name of the unit on a vertical white stripe near the hoist.

Flag Proportions: Republic of China naval flags (excluding the commissioning pennant) have 2:3 proportions.
