In the negotiations with Sweden over the union, Norway retained the right to fly a merchant flag of its own, while accepting that the war ensign was to be a union flag.
In March and April 1815 the King of Norway and Sweden decided that the union war ensign was to be the Swedish war ensign (blue field, yellow Scandinavian cross, swallowtail and tongue) with the addition of a white saltire on red in the upper hoist corner.
Admirals had the war ensign with three dark blue disks set one over two in the centre of the cross.

The duties of High or Lord Admiral, and later of Lord High Admiral, were exercised by an individual until 1628, when for the first time the office was put into commission, all the great officers of state being commissioners.
