Description

The Civil Defense flag of the Dominican Republic can be seen in several photographs online, including https://actualidadinfo.wordpress.com/2012/02/21/defensa-civil-depositaron-ofrenda-floral-en-el-altar-de-la-patria/, http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-nUMu4JE0H58/VhLBwzZZahI/AAAAAAAAAx0/JMxx2TWDUXY/s1600/DSC_6058.JPG, and http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-VNSEN_qSEUs/VIM6Ko6GR4I/AAAAAAAAgUo/Ctcmq7XKVGU/s1600/DSCN2614.JPG. The flag features the circular Civil Defense seal centered on an orange field. The seal is blue with the white silhouette of the country in the middle, surmounted by an orange triangle bearing the letters "DC" for "Defensa Civil." The blue circle is surrounded by a white ring, outlined in blue, bearing the words "DEFENSA CIVIL" around the top and "REPÚBLICA DOMINICANA" around the bottom, all in black, capital, sans serif letters. Based on the photographs linked above, some variation is apparently allowed in the size of the seal, and in whether the "DC" on the seal is white or black.

The National Emergencies Commission (Comisión Nacional de Emergencias, CNE) is the executive body that oversees the Dominican Republic's Office of Civil Defense. The Commission directly advises the Executive Directorate on matters related to the day-to-day Civil Defense operations.
