Re: BVI Flag Etiquette

It's a BVIs charter so fly what you want, drink lots of rum and enjoy yourselves.

BUT do not remove the national flag/ensign from the aft of your boat!
I heard a story that some French Canadians in a Chartered boat removed the ensign and put up their own French Flag and got stopped by the Coast Guard who did not appreciate their sovereignty being insulted and fined them $2,000!!!!!!!

The flying of girls knickers from the mast top is allowed too.....
