Description of the flag

While surfing the Internet I came across the following, at: http://net.lib.byu.edu/estu/wwi/comment/CRB/CRB1-5a.htm

""DOCUMENT NO. 195
Example of statement required of masters of ships using the C.R.B. flag

ROTTERDAM, 27 January 1915
I undersigned, J. Hutcheon, Master of the British Steamer "Polvarth," do hereby solemnly promise and declare not to use the flag entrusted to me by The Commission for Relief in Belgium for any purpose whereby any of the belligerent nations have an advantage.

I further promise not to take any cargo on my homeward trip, whilst flying the Commission's flag, and undertake to deliver this flag immediately on arrival at the first port of call in the U.K.

(Signed) J. HUTCHEON, Master""

Has anyone an image or description of this flag?

I saw [the flag above] at the Hoover Institution on 7 June 2004 when I went there to photograph flags, however it seemed to small to me to be a maritime signal/ensign? I was hoping there might be a surviving flag in either Belgium or Europe.
