Quick trawl round the internet produced this.

Anglo-Egyptian Condominium (1899 - 1956)

During the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium (1899 until 1956) there was no individual flag for Sudan. Instead the two flags of Egypt and the United Kingdom were used, with the British flag taking precedence.

The Egyptian flag changed three times during the Condominium period: up until 1914 it was red with a crescent and star (as for the Ottoman Empire); between 1914 and 1923 it was red with three crescents and three stars; and finally between 1923 and 1954 it was green with one crescent and three stars. I believe that although the Condominium ended in 1956, the blue-yellow-green flag of Sudan was hoisted in 1954. Flags Through the Ages and Across the World (1975) by Whitney Smith [sme75b] has a photo (p.153) of the two flags with the following text: 'Therefore the flags of these two countries were flown jointly, with the Union Jack always taking precedence - except in the city of Suakin, where Egyptian flag flew alone'. Why was Suakin an exception?
Željko Heimer, 06 Oct 1996
In my Allers Illustrerede Konversations-Leksikon, Copenhagen 1906-10, I found an article on Suakin. It seems that the city itself (lying on an island) belonged to Egypt, while the hinterland and the mainland town, El Kef (Gef), belonged to Anglo-Egyptian Sudan which probably explains why only the Egyptian flew in the city.

From Andrew Humphreys' On the Nile in the Golden Age of Travel (2015 The American University in Cairo Press):
Quote:
IBIS
Sternwheel steamer, built by Fairfield, Govan in 1885 for the British Army, who subsequently leased the vessel to Thomas Cook & Son. With cabins for 28, she was used on the service between the First and Second Cataracts until the British Army asked for her return in 1896 for use in the campaign to retake Khartoum. She was then acquired by the Sudanese government, who ran her between the First and econd Cataracts to connect with the scheduled rail services to Khartoum. In 1938 she was used in the film The Four Feathers, starring Ralph Richardson. She was reported to still be in existence as recently as 2004, but her current whereabouts are unknown.
