Distinctive Signals of Large Commands

The flags of general officers in the Brazilian Army as of 1944 were referred to as "distinctive signals of large commands" and followed the German system of representing the command position rather than the officer's rank. All of them are (or were) divided vertically, red in the hoist with a white lozenge throughout, and horizontally striped in the fly, green and golden yellow, with the number of stripes representing the level of the command (five for an army, four for a corps, three for a division, and two for a brigade). Red numbers and symbols on the lozenge indicated the specific command.
