Can confirm that the yellow "Q" is still in use everywhere.

I believe the vessels registry determines the flag flown aft (not on a pigstick, as T34C pointed out - they are for YC burgees)

My guess would be Red Ensign rather than the Union Jack as a courtesy flag. Perhaps fly the others mentioned below the Red (or on port side?) if you are in those regions? Not sure about that either.
