The  distinctive  mark  of  a  commissioned  Navy ship or craft is a personal flag or a command pennant of  an  officer  of  the  Navy  or  a  commission  pennant. The distinctive mark of a commissioned hospital ship of the Navy is the Red Cross flag. A  ship  or  craft  does  not  display  more  than  one distinctive mark at one time, nor does it  display  the commission  pennant  and  the  personal  flag  of  a  civil official at one time. Except  as  prescribed  in  Navy  Regulations  for certain occasions of ceremony and when civil officials are embarked, ships display the flag or pennant day and night. Ships  display  the  distinctive  mark  at  the after   masthead   or,    in   a mastless   ship,   from   the loftiest and most conspicuous hoist. When  not  underway  ships  display  the  national ensign from the flagstaff and the union jack from the jackstaff  from  0800  until  sunset.  A  ship  that  enters port at night, when appropriate, displays the national ensign from the gaff at daylight for a time sufficient to   establish   its   nationality.   Other   ships   of   war customarily display their national ensigns in return. Unless the senior officer present directs otherwise, a ship  underway  displays  the  ensign  during  daylight from  the  gaff  under  the  following  circumstances.  (If the  ship  has  mast-mounted  booms  and  stays  that would interfere with the 8-8
