No. But Al, why two U.S. flags?

Isn't one sufficient?

One is, but when my daughter gave me the large flag, I thought I'd display it proudly. Still thought the stern flagstaff was the most proper place for the US flag, so I kept it there. What can I say...I'm proud to be an American!!

AS a Florida boat we fly the US Ensign on the stern and use a black flag at the stbd hoist.

Since FL has the your home is your castle law , the black flag gives fair warning.

NO QUARTER

Correct , and if the situation were reversed , a US vessel in CN waters the CN flag at the stbd spreader would be required.

Note the US jack flag "DON'T TREAD ON ME" is being incorporated into the Naval Academy's football uniform for this weeks game against Army.

I can recall entering a lock on the Erie Canal flying the Union Jack on our bow staff. After we exited the lock the First Mate told me a small boat ahead of us took offence to this and stated that the Unoin Jack is only to be flown on commissioned US Navy ships. This is true but it doesn't preclude the use of the Union Jack by other vessels if flown properly.

????? The Union Jack is to be flown by UK Registered vessels or UK warships and has nothing to do with the US Navy or the Erie Canal.

Most former British Colonies of which the U.S is one, incorporate a National flag with a canton in the top left corner. In our case (U.S.) that one is the blue portion of our national flag with the 50 stars which in turn represent the 50 states of the "union". on the British Flag it represents the flags of the countries of Great Britian. For many years the U.S. Navy used that canton as their "Jack" flag. After 9/11 they approved using an older version with background stars and the "Don't tread on me" as the Naval Jack Flag. It is common to refer to the top left hand corner of a National flag of these former British Colonies as the union jack. It can be flown appropriately by other U.S. vessels. It flew daily on the steamboats that I used to work on from their forward mast.

it is also common American parlance to "axe" a question .... that does not make it correct. There is only one Union Jack.

You lost the war of 1812 but still admit you are a British colony.

Not "former" as long as you claim the right to fly the "Union Jack".

Please "google" the first U.S. Flag which we refer to as our "Grand Union Flag". The British do not have a patent on the word "union" nor "jack". Admiral Perry and Andrew Jackson would probably disagree as to the outcome of the war of 1812. Once again the top left hand corner of a flag is considered the canton or "jack".
