I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but the national ensign should not be flown from a pig stick, but from a staff at the stern or the leach of the mainsail (or backstay) at a height equivalent to flying from the gaff.

As to what courtesy flag should be flown, since all counrties you listed are British commonwealth countries, I believe you would technically be correct in flying the Union Jack from the starboard spreader in all of them.
