That's basically what I'm asking about, just not huge and obnoxious like this.



Edit - I certainly wouldn't want my own countries flag to be any bigger than the courtesy flag.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but do you recall the name of the boat pictured and where it was taken? Looks like a Hans Christian I am familiar with.

Thanks
