We also list our Courtesy Flags geographically by Ocean/Sea/Voyage @

http://www.jimmygreen.co.uk/products/chandlery/flags/courtesy-flags

Jimmy Green Courtesy Flags are 45cm x 30cm (Half Yard) with the patterns and motifs screen printed on top quality woven 100% polyester bunting, not the shiny cheaper fabric

179 different Courtesy Flags in stock and we will add more if there is any demand

Some individual islands or regions may be covered by the national flag e.g.the Netherlands  or the Netherlands Antilles Courtesy Flag may cover St. Maarten, Statia (St. Eustatius), Saba, and Bonaire

However, the feel good factor when you make land will more than make up for the extra price of the individual flags :-)

Courtesy Flag Etiquette

As a gesture of courtesy, yachts should fly the appropriate foreign national courtesy flag when they enter and sail in their waters.

There are no universal rules governing courtesy flag etiquette.
Officials interpret the rules differently from country to country, region to region, island to island or even port to port.
Failing to fly a courtesy flag or flying a courtesy flag improperly may only be considered impolite in some places but in others where it is enforced by local law, officials go as far as impounding passports or imposing fines until the proper flag (which may only be available to purchase locally at great expense) is flying on board.
Flying an undersized, faded or tatty courtesy flag may be considered worse than having no courtesy flag at all in some places.
If you are in any doubt, the best thing to do is observe other yachts from your country and even ask them for guidance.

Traditionally and logically, you should not fly a courtesy flag until your vessel is properly cleared by customs and immigration.
Until clearance is complete, you should only fly the yellow Q (quarantine) flag.
This is because you have not officially entered the new country until you are cleared through customs.
However, it is common practice, and generally speaking, courteously accepted in many countries, to hoist the courtesy flag above the Q flag in anticipation of clearing customs and immigration. 

On a yacht without any mast, the courtesy flag (or Q) should be flown at the bow.
On a mast with spreaders, the courtesy flag (or Q) should be flown at the starboard spreader.

In recent years yacht owners have been a little more adventurous in their approach to courtesy flag etiquette especially in relation to individual islands, Crown Dependencies and regions within a country including county flags in the UK.
If you are flying the local flag in the right spirit i.e. as a matter of courtesy then you are unlikely to cause offence.
In fact, it is positively welcomed in some independently minded islands and regions as a token of respect to their provincial pride.
Some locals may be particular whether it is the correct maritime ensign or the land flag but in general it is the effort made to be courteous which is important.

A burgee should take the next most senior position on a yacht which is at the main masthead.
Only one burgee should be flown on a yacht.
Burgees are now commonly flown at the starboard spreaders but this is not correct and creates a dilemmma when you wish to fly a courtesy flag because a burgee should not be flown above or below a national courtesy flag on the same halyard.
Therefore if you choose to fly your burgee at the starboard spreader you will have a dilemma in foreign waters.
This could be avoided by reeving a second flag halyard to the starboard spreader but is not strictly following flag etiquette.

It may be considered polite or even proper to fly a regional or island courtesy flag e.g. in the Channel Isles there are individual courtesy flags for each island.

There is nothing wrong with endearing yourself to the local sailors, fishermen and officialsIt's also entering into the spirit of the 'courtesy' tradition

If the region or island flag is in foreign waters then it should be flown below the National Courtesy flag e.g. Britany under France.
There may be some local exceptions to this rule e.g. Display Azores flag over Portugal flag, Canary Isles over Spain, Madeira over Portugal, Galapagos over Ecuador.
We advise you to seek local advice.

If the yacht has more than one mast, the courtesy flag should be flown from the starboard spreader of the forward mast.

N.B. Only ever your own ensign or national flag should be flown from the stern of a yacht

If you want to fly your regional or county flag or even your cruising club flag e.g. Cornwall, Devon, the ARC World Cruising Club then it's probably best to hoist these on the port spreader to avoid any confusion with your courtesy flag(s). This is becoming much more prevalent, is generally done in good spirit, and as such, should hopefully not cause offence
