I agree, but that would mean my flag would be about 5' above the deck, doesn't seem high enough, even your diagram shows to the spreader. I hope I can raise the home flag.

BTW the correct ensign to be flown by vessels either registered in the BVI's or visiting the BVI's is a defaced red ensign and not the Union Flag. Mind you in my time in the BVI's I never remember seeing one flown as a courtesy flag, you could start a trend.
Well, the flag you attached is what I called the Union Jack above, and it is that which flies on the boat, although I couldn't see the "VIGILATE". But, Conch Charters has it flying ~5-6' above the deck on the starboard shroud. Thanks for posting the flag & priority diagram-
