Description

[Martin and Dreyhaupt 2000 shows two flags labelled] Abgabe von Handelstonnage an Alliierten 1918: Überführungsflagge: [the first labelled] Verbandsflagge [and the second] Verbandsflagge (Variant).

It should be the flag used for [merchant] vessels when given over to the allies as war remedies after the end of the First World War. I don't have the background information, but I would guess that Verband in this case was used about as it is used in military circumstances. Verband then means a military formation or force of medium size.

For Austrian vessels that had been handed over to Allied Governments a special flag was introduced in 1919. It was the house flag of the Allied Maritime Transport Council, a white, over blue, over white, triband flown as an ensign at the stern. "The National Flag of the nation entrusted with its management" was flown at the masthead. A 12' x 8' (3.66m x 2.44m) flag was specified for ships over 4,000 tons, with proportionately smaller flags for smaller vessels.

These two flags should have the same shade of blue, shouldn't they?
