Construction sheet for the civil ensign of Gibraltar - Image by Martin Grieve, 2 April 2005

In Article (2) of the Royal Order, it is stated that: "The positioning and proportions of the defacement shall be in accordance with the illustration in the Schedule hereto." The Schedule attached to this Order shows a flag with the conventional proportions of 1:2 and this illustration is an integral part of a legal document, is referred to in it and so is definitive.
The image contained in the schedule attached to the Order differs from that in the current Edition of BR20 (image) by showing a differently shaped shield (narrowing from top edge to point), is slightly differently detailed, and is centred in the fly half, is 5/11 of flag height overall, with the shield itself 4/11 high in proportions of 40:38.
