Does anyone know where there is a photo of the
White Star Line Commodore Flag?
If not, does anyone know the difference in the
style from the standard flag? Would this be a
burgee?

Thanking you in advance

The White Star Line Commodore Burgee is behind Mellvinna, and flew in service on M.V. Britannic if I remember correctly.

Flies Commodore's Flag
---
When the White Star liner Majestic arrived yesterday from Southampton via Cherbourg, Captain E. L. Trant flew the commodore's flag from the maintruck for the first time. It is a red burgee with the five-pointed white star in the centre and edged with white, the detail in which it differs from the ordinary house-flag of the company. After the Majestic was docked, the new commodore of the fleet received the congratulations of the White Star staff in this port.

COMMODORE OF WHITE STAR LINE
---
SIR BERTRAM HAYES'S PENNANT

---
The White Star Line have decided to create the appointment of a
commodore to their fleet, and the first commander to hoist the flag, a
red pennant with a white star upon it, will be Sir Bertram Hayes,
D.S.O., R.D., R. N. R.. who was recently promoted to similar rank in the
Royal Naval Reserve. The commodore's colours will be flown over the
line's house flag.

Sir Bertram Hayes has been appointed to the Majestic, of 56,000 tons,
the largest steamer in the world, which is to leave Southampton on May
10 on her maiden trip in the Southampton-Cherbourg-New York service,
when he will hoist his pennant for the first time. He is at present in
command of the Olympic, whose long war service, also under his command,
included the sinking of at least one German submarine
