Description The ensign of the Burma RNVR. A blue ensign with a badge in the fly depicting a blue and green peacock on a yellow background. This design was in use between 1939-1948. The flag is made in machine-sewn cotton and the whole design is printed including the Union Flag. The fabric has been weighted and a turned over edge forms the hoist. A rope for hoisting is attached. After Burma separated from India in 1937, a branch of the RNVR was formed in Rangoon on 7 June 1940. Its members operated smaller landing craft and motor launches in the estuaries round Rangoon and elsewhere in the Far East.
Date made 1939-1948
