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.

Re: Flying a Flag on Shrouds ?

Well my boat is in my back yard so i do not have to climb mast.. i do not know the order of the flags. If there is a order ? I know tho starboard is for non serious flags!

A flag etiquette failure can get you into serious trouble. The courtesy flag (misnamed, it is required) and the Q flag are both flown from the starboard spreader.

Ensigns are flown from a transom mounted flag staff or from the leech of the aft most sail.

And size matters.

Boat flag etiquette
