The Pskov Flag is used to represent persons or institutions of the state (i.e. the mint, the Veche, and any other dignitaries, administrators, generals, etc...), and is sometimes used instead of a naval ensign as there is currently none. In 1469 the Veche, after the construction of a larger fleet, adopted a new Naval ensign to be used alongside the national flag when Ships are at sea.
