Description

In the 1960s the British Queen [Elizabeth II] adopted a personal flag which is quite separate from the Royal Standard and is a square royal blue flag bearing a crowned initial E within a ring of stemmed roses, all in gold. In Commonwealth countries which she is Queen of, a personal flag for that realm is used which consists of a banner of the arms of that country with a blue disk bearing the gold crowned 'E' and which is bordered by the gold ring of roses. So the Maltese standard referred to would fit that pattern, though technically it is not a standard but a personal flag.

At the time of the Queen's visit in November 1967 (when her personal flag for Malta was first seen) we also had a Governor General. On the 12th December 1974, Malta became a republic within the British Commonwealth.
Adrian Strickland

According to Barraclough and Crampton 1981 [bcr81], p. 130:

The Queen's personal standard for use in Malta was established on 31 October 1967, with the royal cypher on blue in the centre of a banner of the Arms, but this became obsolete when Malta became a Republic on 12 December 1974.

Santiago Dotor, 2 February 2000

Maybe the chaplet and letter E should be depicted in gold rather than yellow. Even though this is the common way of representing (heraldic) gold on a flag, in this case the image (scan here by David Prothero) in Strickland 1992 [str92] seems to represent metallic gold.
