Built to last in the Isle of Man!

They celebrated the Launch of the Star of India today (1863 ) with an offshore sail accompanied by 2 other "tall ships".
Believe she is the oldest active iron clad sailing vessel.
Was glad to see the Isle of Man flag flying on deck, but was unsure about the mast top flag.
Dont know if you can make it out but it looks like an english flag with a smaller red cross in the top left corner.

cheers Dal
