Rank insignia of a grand admiral

Grand admiral is a special grade officer rank in the Imperial Chinese Navy. It ranks immediately above admiral and is the equivalent of field marshal in the Imperial Army, Imperial Air Force, and Imperial Rocket Force. The rank was established during the Second Sino-Japanese War by the Guangxu Emperor, appointing Chen Shaokuan in 1942 as a grand admiral, and has remained in use since then.
