Taylor Made US Yacht Ensign, 16" x 24".

Flags are flown, traditionally from 8:00 a.m. to sunset, from the stern staff (when under way or occupied), or onboard sailboats—on aftermost sail 2/3 length of the leach above the clew; onboard sportfisherman—on halyard just behind the tuna tower.How large of a flag for my boatFor aesthetically pleasing proportions, we recommend a flag that is 1" long for every 1' of boat length. The staff should be twice the length of the flags vertical edge. For example, a 33' boat should fly a 24" x 36" Yacht Ensign on a 48" staff. A shorter staff may be used if there is insufficient space.Key Features of Taylor's Yacht EnsignDeluxe sewn flags are constructed from lightweight yet durable fade resistant polyester fabric--which makes them the perfect all-weather flagsThey include individually sewn stripes, embriodered stars, brass grommets and four-needle flyendsMade in the U.S.A.
