Overview

On the Internet pages of the "Piirivalve", <www.pv.ee> I found that the Border Guard still uses a special flag as it did even before WWII. You can find a good image on the page <www.pv.ee/symboolika.html>.
The present flag looks very similar to the one in the "Flaggenbuch" , i.e. a blue-black-white tricolour, with a green triangle at the hoist fimbrated yellow and with the white letters PV in the middle of the green field. The present version seems a bit darker, though, and the dots after the letters P.V. are missing.
Unfortunately the English language page lacks the explanation of the symbols. However, the Estonian text states that the width of the yellow fimbration be 0.1 units of the flag's width and that the tip of the triangle be placed in the geometrical center of the flag. I suppose the other proportions of the flag are as in the national flag, because nothing specific is said about it. As it is called the flag of the Border Guard (not just Coast Guard), it is probably used both at sea and on land even though on the photos it is seen replacing the ensign.

It is indeed used on land, quite near the Parliament building (Tallinn) in fact.

From online version of Jane's "Fighting Ships 2004": Border Guard ensign - "The letters PV are visible on the national flag which is defaced with green and yellow markings."
