The newly adopted flags in 1915 were not imidiately introduced, and the person responsible for the process of introduction of the new flags in the Naval Section of the Ministry of War was given to Rear-Admiral von Khuepach. As an expirianced naval officer, von Kuepach proposed a number of appropriate changes and additions to the 1915 flag set. He proposed four different flag for use in the military accoridng to the use. Unfortunately, the design details are unknown.
The keiserlich königlich Flagge was to be hoisted by the Austrian army (k. k. Landwehr) garizons. The design was to be same as previous navale ensign, i.e. the red-white-red trbar with the Austrian coat of arms by the hoist.
The keiserlich und königlich Flagge was to be the ceremonial version for garizons, the triband with the two coats of arms.
The königlich ungarisch Flagge was to be hoisted by the Hungarian army - home defence (Kiraly Magyar Honvedseg) garizons. The design was (probably) the Hungarian tircolour with teh coat of arms.
