RE: Flags

I fly this Don't Tread on Me flag on the jack staff . It is actually the 1st Navy Jack (not the Gadsten flag adopted by the Tea Party). I like the sentiment.

Would that happen to be a pink burgee, David?

I fly our US colors from the stern flagstaff and my new Christmas gift "Remove Before Flight" burgee.

*We fly the US flag from the peak of the gaff (boom), our club burgee from the jackstaff on the bow, and courtesy flags from the starboard spreader.* The attached spreader photo was taken when were took friends from France on a cruise through the Gulf Islands a few years ago.* We were in Canada, the wife is French, and the husband is Scottish.

When we are in Canada without international guests on board we fly the Canadian Maple Leaf on top and the "proper" Canadian flag, the Red Ensign, below that.

If we happen to be on the boat, in port or cruising, on July 14 we fly a full-size French flag from the peak of the gaff and a US courtesy flag from the starboard spreader.

RE: Flags

Your calendar has a very narrow view of the world :-) What is Bastille Day? If you can find that out, the reason we fly the French flag on that day becomes obvious.

RE: Flags

Here's a very special flag I only fly on certain holidays. Since my dad was a veteran, the government sent this one to drape his coffin when he passed away.

I would think the French would be happy to see someone honor their independence day, particularly someone of French ancestry with a boat named after a French hero.

The US gets my tax money.* That's far more important to the country*than whatever flag I*happen to*fly from my civilian*toy boat.

Besides, it's just a flag.* In the overall scheme of things it's pretty close to the bottom of my list of* Things That Matter.

As the US Customs guy said to me once during a border crossing when I asked him what the strange artsy"thing" is on the grounds of the Blaine border crossing he said in a voice dripping with sarcasm, "It's decor."

RE: Flags

I fly a US ensign from the stern staff, an AGLCA burgee on the bow staff, a Power Squadron ensign from the starboard flybridge mast hoist and on the port flybridge mast hoist I fly a Power Squadron burgee from my local squadron (Fox Valley - District 20) and my Power Squadron Past Commander's burgee.

If the post office would deliver my mail to me while I'm underway, I'd consider flying a USPS flag. ;-)

It's no different than someone posting that old ad in the New York Times Classifieds that read:

French army rifles,

never fired,

dropped once.*

Maybe, but the the spread of ignorance is the spread of ignorance, no matter how much in jest it might be.* It's why most Americans believe the British drink warm beer.* Wrong is wrong no matter how it's phrased.
