In [kan56] the proportions are 2:3, and the miniature flag in the canton is the state flag, with the arms.
Mark Sensen, 11 Apr 1999

Album 2000 [pay00] shows a flag with the state flag (i.e. with coat of arms) in canton and yellow anchor in fly.

Canton shows no arms in the Album 1995 [pie90].
Ivan Sache, 11 Apr 1999

Incorrect report

The Album 1995 [pie90] gives the jack as a white ensign with the in canton (without arms) and yellow anchor in fly, which most sources show for the presidential flag, while it shows for the presidential flag what most sources show for the jack. Was it error in Album 1995?).

I suppose it was Trujillo, dictator from 1930 until his assassination in 1961.
Ivan Sache, 10 Apr 1999

Flag of the Generalissime: This is one of the five dominican naval flags in Flaggenbuch (1939-1941) [neu39]. (The others are war ensign and jack, civil ensign, flag of rear-admiral, head of a flotilla and admiral flag)
Ivan Sache, 10 Apr 1999

Admiral-in-Chief and Head of State

Flag of the AiC and HoS
image by Mark Sensen, 13 Apr 1999

[car56] gives a flag of the Admiral-in-Chief and Head of State: royal blue with the national flag in the first quarter, in the fly 4 white stars placed two and two. I presume this flag replaced the Generalissime’s and was later replaced by the current presidential flag.

Judicial Power, Dominican Rep. (Poder Judicial)
Blas Delgado Ortiz, 24 Jan 2002

According to the official website of the Dominican Judicial Power about their flag: The flag was created by the late Dominican Judge Julio Genaro Campillo Pérez. It was first raised on February 23, 1998. The meaning of its colors is the following:

  • Purple: represents the Judgeship
  • White: represents the lawyers
  • Blue represents the Public Ministry
  • The golden scales represent Justice
In the website, it is also explained that the Blue of the lower stripe is “Copenhague Blue”. The flag should be raised in all Judicial Power buildings and court rooms, next to the national flag. See a really beautiful (and big) picture of the flag on line.

General Direction for Budget
DIGEPRES (Dirección General de Presupuesto)

DIGEPRES flag

Here is the flag of this Dominican state government institution (image only), and its description in Spanish.
Valentin Poposki, 19 Feb 2010

Dirección General de Presupuesto (DIGEPRES), depending on the Finance Minister, is the Finance General Directorate. Presbribed by the Organic Law on Public Financing No. 426-06, 17 November 2006, DIGEPRES superseded the former Oficina Nacional de Presupuesto (ONAPRES, Finance National Office).

The flag of DIGEPRES is celeste blue with a golden fringe all around. The name of the agency is placed in the upper part of the flag, surmonting the name of the ministry it depends on ("Secretaría de Estado de Hacienda"). The logo of the agency is placed in the middle of the flag. The celeste blue colour recalls coldness and intelligence, highlighting the DIGEPRES' impartiality and rationality in the use and assessment of public founds. The colour also represents knowledge and stability required to fund the Government’s development plans and priorities while keeping macroeconomical stability.

The logo of DIGEPRES is made of a rectangle encompasing the full name and emblem of the agency. Placed on the right of the logo, the DIGEPRES' emblem is made of a horseshoe-shaped blue "D" letter (for "Dirección"), from which emerges a small rectangle diagonally ascending to the upper right corner of the logo, slightly curvated. The rectangle is divided by a diagonal, forming two opposed arrows; the blue arrow, pointing to the "D", symbolizes receipts, while the red arrow, pointing out of the "D", symbolizes public expenditure.
