Fire and Rescue Service flag

The sources below confirm that the emblems of all three services (Police, Fire and Emergency Service)appear on their flags, which are consistent with each other. In respect of the Northern Territory Police and the Northern Territory Emergency Services, these both feature the St Edward's Crown. However, note that the official sources prefer to state that the crown is a "Commonwealth" symbol, rather than, say, the symbol of The Queen of Australia as the head of state of Australia.

Should this flag be similar to the present police and fire service flags? In the photograph in their Annual Report of 2005, p.107, only the fly portion with the service badge is visible.
