Naval Unit Flag

The Badge comes from - the two anchors represent the fleet and the Marine Corps respectively (even though the Marines Corps uses different flags). Each branch of rice has five leaves, representing the Constitution's separation of powers into five Yuans (executive, legislative, judiciary, supervision and examination). The unit/vessel's name would be written in black on a white vertical strip near the hoist. Fringed in yellow, white metal spearhead finial with red tassel.

At the beginning of the video clip there were five flags being paraded by the 'Naval Fleet Seamen Battalion'. These were red flags fringed in yellow, with the Navy Emblem placed on a blue rectangle in the centre. I have seen online photos of reproductions of similar flags with different emblems for other Navy units, but so far I have no reliable source.
The name of the unit was written in black letters on the white strip.
