Which Ensign should I fly?

1530 Views 9 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Telesail
I will be sailing a vessel that is registered in both the U.S. Virgin Islands and on the British Small Ships Register. I intend to take her into the Spanish Virgin Islands and the BVI.

While I am in the USVI, does anyone know whether I should be flying a Red Ensign with a USVI courtesy pennant, flying the Stars and Stripes or the USVI flag?

When in either of the other two jurisdictions, obviously I need the appropriate courtesy pennant but which ensign?

Any advice gratefully received

Thanks for the feedback. I will check what the legal status is. Like you, I was surprised that she can be on two registers.

She is definitely not USCG registered so sounds like USVI document is something else. I will find out and revert
