On being courteous

When in a foreign country, it is customary, and often legally required, that the boat fly the local flag on the tallest mast.  And not just any local flag; one should use the civil ensign.  On this photo, Peregrinus flies the civil ensign of The Bahamas on the forward mast while docked last year in Bimini.  As The Bahamas is part of the British Commonwealth, the design of its civil ensign shares a legacy with the Red Duster that flies on the stern of Peregrinus.
