Re: Flag Protocol for Bahamas

Notice that the Bahamas courtesy flag flown by vistors is not the same as the Bahamas national flag.

Also, don't make my mistake. Take the flag down for heavy weather!


Take care and joy, Aythya crew

Re: Flag Protocol for Bahamas

And did I read someplace that proper protocol is to take down US flag when not on the boat? Don't quite understand that one. And take down at night, and when sailing? Night I guess I can understand because I think in one of the HOA's we lived it was required to either be lighted, or taken down.
