The national flag of the Bahamas consists of a black triangle situated at the hoist with three horizontal bands: aquamarine, gold and aquamarine. Adopted in 1973 to replace the British Blue Ensign defaced with the emblem of the Crown Colony of the Bahama Islands, it has been the flag of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas since the country gained independence that year. The colors of the flag carry cultural, political, and regional meanings. The gold alludes the shining sun – as well as other key land-based natural resources, while the aquamarine epitomizes the water surrounding the country. The black symbolizes the “strength”, “vigor, and force” of the Bahamian people, while the directed triangle evokes their “enterprising and determined” nature to cultivate the abundant natural resources on the land and in the sea. ⚠ Prop 65 WARNING

International Courtesy Flag Rules

As a matter of courtesy, it is appropriate to fly the flag of a foreign nation on your boat when you enter and operate on its waters. There are only a limited number of positions from which flags may be displayed. Therefore, when a flag of another nation is flown, it usually must displace one of the flags displayed in home waters. However, it is hoisted only after the appropriate authorities have granted clearance. Until clearance is obtained, a boat must fly the yellow’Q’ flag. Often cruising sailors fly both the courtesy flag and the quarantine flag (Q flag below) on entering a foreign port.

  • On a mastless powerboat, the courtesy flag of another nation replaces any flag that is normally flown at the bow of the boat.
  • When a motorboat has a mast with spreaders, the courtesy flag is flown at the starboard spreader.
  • On a two-masted motorboat, the courtesy flag displaces any flag normally flown at the forward starboard spreader.
  • On a sailboat, the courtesy flag is flown at the boat’s starboard spreader, whether the United States ensign is at the stern staff, or flown from the leech. If there is more than one mast, the courtesy flag is flown from the starboard spreader of the forward mast.
