Nautical Courtesy Flag Etiquette

Merchant ships are not legally bound to fly a courtesy flag when entering or leaving a foreign port. However, it is regarded as a sign of respect to do so which signifies that the vessel will adhere to the laws and sovereignty of the country.

We have many inquiries as to what size flag should be flown. The general rule is; one inch of fly for every two feet of vessel. Therefore, a 36-foot vessel would require an 18-inch flag.

Fragment of Nelson’s Flag

In 2018, part of a Union flag said to be flown from Nelson’s ship, sold at auction for £297,000. The fragment dating from circa 1801-1805, measured a mere 36″ x 34″ and is believed to be either from the bottom right, or the top left section of the Union that was placed on Nelson’s coffin.

The piece was made up of hand-woven red, white and blue fabric and the separate sections were all hand-stitched together. It must have taken many hours of work to produce as the Union is a complicated flag to make, even with today’s electric sewing machines.
