Flag adopted 1911
From the Singha Beer source:
This tiny yellow flag [like the King's Broad Pennant but with a red tapering swallowtail instead of a white one], less than 60 cms. square, is connected on the right to a long red "tail" that tapers off to a point-like that of a bird's tail, the right-hand side being half the width of the left. The other features are in the same proportions as those found on the "Maharaj Noi".
This flag was used in place of the Rachini Yai whenever there was no order for a 21 gun salute. The flag has been in use since B.E.2453 [1910 AD] i.e. during the reign of King Rama VI – down to the present time.
