A pig stick is a flagstaff that is raised on a halyard, and when raised fully, will extend up past the masthead.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

And you will fly your club's Burgee from the pig stick.

Got it. Does anyone have a picture of this? Don't believe I've ever seen one.

Union Jack

I seem to recall being corrected on calling the British National Flag the "Union Jack". It is correctly termed the Union Flag.

The Jack is the Union Flag with a white border (Also called the pilot jack). This flag is not the ensign on British ships but also worn on British ships above the stem, flying from the "Jack Staff".

Regarding the Queen's flag - the royal standard is flown above the royal residence (e.g. Buckingham Palace) whenever she is occupying that residence. The Royal Standard is not the Union Flag, and is quite grand.
