Small nautical flags measure
3 feet by 5 feet, while large ones measure 6 feet by 10 feet. Most ships fly
a large national flag (or “ensign”) and a small courtesy flag (the
flag of the nation whose waters it’s sailing in) as well as a personal
signal, but flag sizes depend on ship size and personal preference.

Flags can be made out of
almost any material. Cotton and silk are common, though any type of cloth degrades
quickly at sea. Most captains replace their flags every two or three voyages.

Ensign and courtesy flags
cost less than personal signals, as they can be made in large quantities. Personal
signals must be custom ordered.
