Flag adopted 11 April 1921, abolished 1933
Like the civil ensign, but with an Iron Cross in the center except for the canton and the size, like the Imperial jack. This was abolished in 1933.
Norman Martin, 1998
As the model 1919 war ensign was never actually introduced, the old war ensign (model 1903) was used until a totally new ensign came into use. This was regulated with the regulation of 11 April 1921, finally in force 1 January 1922. It was basically the civil ensign black-white-red with a black-red-gold canton with an Iron Cross in the center. The proportion was 3:5. Sources:
