Boasun, in case you have not been here, you do need to check out this location. Since all things are relative, this may make your place look grand ref training.

Agreed. However, we also need to admit that flags are ancient technology and most are not common or relevant to recreational boating. AIS should and will eventually make this moot. Not yet.

Regardless of which flag you fly, I've seen boats with an 18" x 24" flag flying off the transom with divers in the water. First, you can't see it from some approach angles. Secondly, it's too small to be easily recognized at all. I'm not exaggerating when I say that flag should be at least 5 x7 if you actually intend for it to get an approaching boater's attention. You may want your country's flag to be proportionate to the size of the vessel, but the diver flag is intended solely to get attention.
