War flag and ensign (1922-1948)

[War flag and ensign] 2:3, by Željko Heimer

The national tricolour with the coat of arms set in the middle. The caption in Flaggenbuch (1939) does not clearly explain if this flag was also used on land as the State or War Flag, possibly. The coat of arms used here is from Christian Siemer's site ( Christian shows six different versions of the coat of arms from 1859 to 1948. Its usage on the national flag (and other flags too) need further research. The site dates the usage of this coat of arms as 23.06.1921 - 08.01.1948. Its use on the flag is probably lesser than that (at both ends). The motto on the ribbon says "NIHIL SINE DEO" - Nothing without God, I guess in the sense "Nothing [could be accomplished] without [the help from] God".

War flag and ensign, pre 1922

[Pre-1922 ensign] 2:3, by Željko Heimer, based on National Geographic (1917)

The national tricolour with the coat of arms in the middle. As differing from 1922(?) pattern shown in Flaggenbuch, here there are the full arms, with crowned mantle, in the middle. I used the image of the arms from Christian Siemer's site (of course, for the royal flag above as well).
