Uganda Blue Ensign (1914-1962)

The Ugandan Blue Ensign was in use between 1914 and 1962.

What was the obverse of these flags like? Did the crane always look to the hoist or the Dexter?

"A bird, the African Balearic Crane, shown in its full natural colouring, is symbolic of Uganda. The Union Flag shows it surrounded by the garland, the Blue Ensign has it without the latter." (Source : Carr's Flags of the World, 1961 (p. 98) [car61] .

Uganda Red Ensign - unofficial

[Ugandan red ensign] image by Martin Grieve, 18 Aug 2002

Martin Grieve sent me this with the remark: "Although Red Ensign probably never flew, I include for completeness". This image can be found on the Jaume Ollé's site, and as well as in "Wer nennt die Länder, kennt die Fahnen?", a cigarette-card album, c. 1930.
Jarig Bakker, 18 Aug 2002

Unless there is evidence that this image represents a flag that was actually made and used, it should be considered fictitious.  There was certainly no authorised Red Ensign for Uganda.

Uganda Colonial badge

image by Martin Grieve, 13 Dec 2009, (after Flaggenbuch) [neu92]

I found only one book with a badge of colonial Uganda (Kannik, 1956). Within the circle on a yellow background a crested crane. In front of its feet a green bush. The head is surrounded by a red lining. In short, more detailed than the present badge on the Ugandan flag.
Jarig Bakker, 26 Oct 1999

Flaggenbuch [neu92] shows the same image with some variations in the colours, the two bushes being "plain" green. However, due to the "artistic" design of the badges of this period, I doubt there was really an "official" version (except maybe the original model designed by a painter?) I also wonder how such designs could have been accurately reproduced on flags.
Ivan Sache, 26 Oct 1999

Probably printed or painted. A 1902 British South Africa Company flag that I saw recently was a printed Union Flag with a blank central white disc where the badge had been hand-painted. The fabric was loosely woven bunting. The badge appeared to have been painted on just one side and perhaps touched up on the other.
