Malaŵi Naval Unit flag

 

Regarding Malawi, it would not be correct to say that Malawi has a Naval ensign since it is a landlocked country, but it does have a "Naval Unit" which operates on Lake Nyasa/Malawi (one of the largest lakes in Africa).
The flag of the Naval Unit is based on a naval ensign pattern and has a white field with a red cross (as in the British White Ensign) with the Malawi national flag in the canton. In the fourth quarter is a yellow anchor, above which is a red lion. Under the anchor are the words "Malawi Naval Unit" in black.
I have one of these flags in my collection made by a manufacturer in Harare.

Naval Unit Flag. ---/--S 3:5
White flag with thin red cross though out, the national flag in canton and an emblem in lower fly. The emblem consists of a cabled yellow anchor with rising sun and with red lion passant guardant above and inscription in black "MALAWI ARMY NAVAL UNIT" around the anchor (following the shape).

Malaŵi Naval Unit - variant

 

[Malawi Naval Ensign] image by Željko Heimer, 12 Dec 2001, after image by Clay Moss, 11 Dec 2001

I lived in Malawi for a couple of years and discovered that the army naval unit had an ensign for its patrol boats. It looks much like the naval ensign of Brunei with the slim blue St. George's Cross as illustrated in Whitney Smith's 1980 abbreviated book, except with the Malawian flag in the canton. There is a red rampant lion over a gold anchor defacing the lower fly quarter. The proportions are roughly 2 to 3. William Smith and Gourock (flag manufacturer in Harare, Zimbabwe) now produce a Malawian naval flag using a red St. George's cross. However, this flag has not yet been seen flying on Lake Malawi
