Re: Flying a Flag on Shrouds ?

Yep, I believe the Jolly Roger is the flag of greater dignity or precedence than the cocktail flag, so it would go above or to starboard. The tackier the flag, the lefter and lower it goes... I suppose the position of ultimate indignity or least precedence goes to oil-absorbing pads in the bilge.
