The colors of this flag were taken from the uniforms of Baron von Luetzow’s volunteers which fought in the Napoleonic wars. They wore black jackets with red lapels and gold buttons. The flag was first used in 1832 until 1892 when the Bismarck replaced the flag with his colors of black, white and red. In 1919 with Germany’s defeat, Germany was declared a Republic and the black, red and gold tri-color was adopted. In 1933 the Nazi party replaced the flag with their swastika flags. After the war, in 1949, the tricolor was reinstated. ⚠ 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.
