Flying the United States National Flag Ensign

  • The U.S. Flag ensign is proper for all U.S. yachts, without reservation
  • All boats, when at anchor, fly it from the stern staff, if so equipped, only while occupied
  • It is flown from the stern staff of powerboats underway on inland waters
  • If the powerboat has a mast and gaff, the proper display is at the gaff
  • On a Sportsfisherman, where a stern staff would be in the way of the action, the practice is to fly the ensign from a halyard rigged just behind the tuna tower
  • The ensign should be flown from the stern staff of all sailboats when under power alone, or at anchor or made fast
  • On Marconi-rigged sailboats under sail alone, the practice for many years had been to fly the ensign from the leech of the aftermost sail, approximately 2/3 the length of the leech above the clew
  • This puts it in about the same position it would occupy if the boat were gaff-rigged, and on gaff-rigged sailboats it is proper to fly the ensign from the peak of the aftermost gaff
  • The advent of the modern high-aspect-ratio rig, with the boom end well inboard of the stern, has made it is possible to fly the ensign from the stern staff of a sailboat underway, and this is now an accepted practice
  • The ensign should be flown from the stern staff of all sailboats
  • If an overhanging boom requires that the staff be off center, it should preferably be on the starboard side
  • Note: The United States Flag should never be displayed while the boat is racing

Note Regarding Flag Sizing: Rule of thumb for choosing the correct size flag for your boat is to use 1" of flag length compared to 1 foot of boat length. Example would be a 35 foot boat would fly a 36" long flag
