Let's see if I posted this correctly...

Wikipedia (FWTW) says this is the naval flag for the Vatican.

Yep, it is, but it is still very unusual to their flag on a yacht.. I'm actually waiting to see the Mongolian flag or one of the many *stans in the middle east to be the flag on a yacht.. I'm just so used to seeing the main countries, especially BVI, Georgetown, etc... as their flag of choice..

We should start a thread for 'yacht spotting'. Where folks can post pictures of the different country flags they spot.

See if you can identify these "Countries?" There are a few boats down here flying these on their stern with no other flags except the local country courtesy flag.

And the Republic of Texas

Well, we haven't been a country since about 1845
(though sometimes I think we'd be better off if we were still The Republic of Texas).
