Square national triband with horizontal anchor. A similar flag was previously used for the Commander in Chief of the Navy, but this title is now taken by the King, so the flag is reassigned for this new function now. The anchor is of a different design though, as in the flag for the Chief-of-Staff of the Navy. Source: Album des Pavillons 2000.

None of my sources (except for Album des Pavillons 2000) shows this flag as that of a Commander of Naval District. I find it weird that the former flag of the highest-ranking commander in the Navy, a position currently occupied by the king or the head of state himself, was 'reused' as that of a regional commander.

My source was an information dated 1989 from the Spanish naval Attaché in Paris.
