Ensigns and other Flags

When flown at the mast, flags to the starboard side of the mast, are considered superior to flags at the port side, ie courtesy ensigns are worn to starboard, house flags to port. National Ensigns are traditionally worn at the stern at the taff rail, with a few exceptions, and normally on the centre vessel line. If worn to one side, I would suggest tradition suggests it is worn in the starboard quarter.

Thanks Steve. I kind of agree - the ensign on my Broom is to starboard on the pushpit and my jet rib had one built-in to starboard. However, I have am now going for port as I need the electrics for the light pole to starboard.

They are both the transom, not on an A-frame, so limited in choice.

Thanks everyone, appreciated.
