Arkadi, each bureaucrat makes their own decision--sometimes contrary to their own government's policies--as to what they will accept.

You can either query each one to find out what they want, or credential yourself to the highest standard (national flagging/titling/documentation) and then be certain that what you have will be accepted all over. If you don't want to go to that expense or bother--again, you'll have to query each one and dicker with them each time.

Arkady: Please send me the link to the Transport Canada page showing a pleasure craft must be registered to fly a national flag. I am very familiar with CSA2001 through my work and have never seen any such thing.

I don't need a passport, social security card, drivers licence, voter registration card, etc to be a resident of the USA. But if I try to go anywhere else...I'd be kicked out or end up in jail

thanks everyone, very helpful! So no chance to get away without national registration I got it!

sailpoker, that was my point that they say a vessel must be registered in order to fly a Canadian flag but they do not specify what kind of vessel. I mean it is not clear whether it applies to all vessels or not and whether pleasure craft is included or not. Therefore, if you can point me to the source that says that I don't need a registration to fly the flag, please post it here.

And an aside. Pleasure craft are not required to fly their national flag while sailing in their home waters. As soon as you "go foreign" you have to fly your national ensign (or allowable substitute).

HAVE TO? Maybe if you and your boat are Canadian, we Yankees suffer no such "Have to" laws.

Now would be a good time to bring up courtesy and quarantine flags.

Lets make it more interesting (and probably typical). So what if you have a passport from one country, live in another country and are planning to buy a boat from another country and then go cruising?

For instance, lets say you are Canadian, living in Japan, planning on buying a Fountaine from France and plan to sail around the world (picking up the boat in France or having it sailed out to Japan for your departure)

Do you fly a Canadian flag? A Japanese flag (as that is where you were resident even though you are now on your way out for an extended abscence) or a French one as that is where you picked the boat up from? Where would you register/license this boat, Canada, Japan, France, nowhere?

"So what if "
There's an old joke about zoo animals on a train traveling from here to there...and the question at the end is "What color were the zoo keeper's eyes?" Which is given at the start but most people forget it assuming it won't be relevant.
Same thing with your question, if you know who flies a flag and why, all the rest is irrelevant background noise. Doesn't change a thing.
