Overview

The decrees from 1950 and 1951 which established the Romanian military colors, flags and emblems of that times remained valid until 1966. On 24 September 1952 a new constitution was adopted. To the coat of arms of Romania was added a five-pointed red star, placed on top of the composition. In 1954 an orthographic reform discarded the letter  from the Romanian alphabet, replacing it with Î, which represents the same sound / i / (like y in Chernobyl). Thus, the flags had now a different spelling of the country's name written on them: "REPUBLICA POPULARĂ ROMÎNĂ". Also, Decree nr. 93 from 17 April 1954 established new ensigns and pennants.

The military colors and ensigns were granted and used according to military rules of the time.

Masthead pennants

The Decree nr. 93 from 17 April 1954 established masthead pennants for the Navy, auxiliary ships of the Navy and Coast Guard. These shared the same pattern: a long rectangular bunting cloth ending in a swallow tail and having printed on both sides, near the hoist, a specific ensign. The annex of the Decree provided the proportions of these elements:

  • Length: L
  • Width: 0.6L (most likely a mistake; maybe 0.06L ?)
  • Length of the ensign printed near the hoist: 0.075L
  • Length of the swallow tail: 0.09L
The ensigns kept their proportions. The dimensions of the pennants were established by the Ministry of Armed Forces or the Ministry of Internal Affairs, according to the size of the ships and the hoisting place.
