Hi All,

Another year passing by very fast
Can someone help with the following question please.
When entering new land fall what is the requirement with flags, are you required to fly the country your visiting as well as your country of origin?

Greetings, and welcome aboard Darren.

Generally yes - you fly your national ensign, and the host country’s courtesy flag (not always the same as their national flag).
The yellow “Q” flag is also flown upon first arrival, until you’ve cleared in.
