Naval Jack

Qatari Naval Jack 2:3
image by Željko Heimer, 26 February 2012

Blue flag with golden emblem in the middle. The emblem consists of an anchor surrounded with a wreath and topped with a crescent and star, below is a ribbon bearing inscription. (The image is missing the inscription on the ribbon.)
In the Corr. 4 to the Album 2000 the drawing is lightly updated: the emblem is made bigger and the wreath of (palm?) leaves is green(ish). I suspect that therefore the image in the original 2000 edition is simply an error due to lack of more precise data, and not that a new design was introduced since.

The Qatar aircraft marking is a red-yellow-white roundel.

Redrawn to remove the grey background and the slight asymmetry that had crept in.

Qatari military flags - UFE

images from Ruppert Baird, 03 February 2013

This morning while watching TV in my hotel room in Abu Dhabi I saw on Qatar TV a military graduation ceremony of the Ahmed bin Mohammed Military College. During the cremonies I saw two flags containing the college's crest. The dimensions of each appeared to be 3:5, and they appeared identical except for the main colors which looked to be a medium olive green and a lighter olive green, almost tan. All services were represented at the parade and ceremony although all the graduates wore the same uniform, so determining what each banner represents is impossible for me. I did NOT see any other flags except the national flag. Sorry for the roughness of the crests. I downloaded them from the college's FB page.

Well, here's a better image resolution for the coat of arms, and here they mention that the first graduates from this Academy were in 2001. Finally, you can see pictures of the Qatar National Day Parade 2012 with some of their flags shown.
