Ceremonies for National Holidays
Certain   boats   display   the   ensign   and   the personal  flag  or  pennant  of  an  officer  on  a  staff fitted  at  the  peak  with  certain  devices.  A  boat assigned for the personal use of a flag or general officer,   unit   commander,   chief   of   staff,   or commanding  officer,  or  on  which  a  civil  official is   embarked   carries   a   staff   fitted   with   the following   devices: A  spread  eagle  for  an  official  or  officer whose  official  salute  is  19  or  more  guns A  halberd —for   a   flag   or   general   officer   whose official  salute  is  less  than  19  guns  or —for  a  civil  official  whose  official  salute is 11 or more guns but less than 19 guns A  ball —for  an  officer  of  the  grade,  or  relative grade,  of  captain  in  the  Navy  or —for  a  career  minister,  a  counselor  or  first secretary   of   embassy   or   legation,   or   a consul A  star  for  an  officer  of  the  grade,  or relative grade, of commander in the Navy A  flat  truck —for  an  officer  below  the  grade,  or relative grade, of commander in the Navy or —for  a  civil  official  not  listed  above  and for  whom  honors  are  prescribed  for  an official  visit DRESS AND FULL-DRESS SHIP Flying the largest national ensign assigned to the ship from the flagstaff with a national ensign displayed at each masthead is known as dress ship. A personal flag or command pennant will not be substituted with a national ensign. The national ensigns displayed at the masthead are of uniform size. When a substantial difference in heights of the  mastheads  exists,  using  different  sizes  of national ensigns is appropriate. In  addition  to  dressing  of  the  mastheads, displaying  a  rainbow  of  signal  flags  reaching  from the  foot  of  the  jackstaff  to  the  mastheads  and from  those  points  to  the  foot  of  the  flagstaff  is known as full-dress ship. Dress ship and full-dress ship  requirements  are  prescribed  in  the  Navy Department   publication   Flags,   Pennants,   and Customs   (NTP-13A).   Peculiarly   roasted   or mastless ships make a display as little modified from  the  rainbow  effect  as  possible. During dress or full-dress ship in honor of a foreign nation, the national ensign of that nation replaces the United States national ensign at the main, or at the masthead in the case of a single- masted  ship.  During  dress  or  full-dress  ship  in honor of more than one nation, the ensign of each nation is displayed at the main, or at the masthead in a single-roasted ship. Should half-masting of the national ensign be re- quired on occasions of dress or full-dress ship, only the  national  ensign  at  the  flagstaff  is  half-roasted. When full-dress ship is prescribed, the senior officer  present  may  direct  that  dress  ship  be substituted if, in that officer’s opinion, the state of the weather makes such action advisable. The senior officer present may also, under such circum- stances, direct that the ensigns be hauled down from  the  mastheads  after  they  have  been  hoisted. Dress ship or full-dress ship is prescribed for ships  not  underway  from  0800  until  sunset. Neither  dress  ship  nor  full-dress  ship  is  prescribed for  ships  underway. SENIOR OFFICER PRESENT AFLOAT   PENNANT Ships  use  the   “starboard”  pennant  as  the senior  officer  present  afloat  (SOPA)  pennant. If  two  or  more  Navy  ships  are  docked  together in   port,   the   ship   in   which   the   senior   officer present afloat (SOPA) is embarked displays the SOPA  pennant,  except  when  the  SOPA’s  personal flag clearly indicates that officer’s seniority. It is displayed   from   the   inboard   halyard   of   the starboard  main  yardarm. SPECIAL  CEREMONIES, ANNIVERSARIES,   AND SOLEMNITIES Navy  ships,  stations,  and  activities  perform special ceremonies in honor of certain memorials, solemnities,  and  events,  such  as  funerals,  the commissioning  of  ships,  and  holidays.  Although they  perform  special  ceremonies  for  several holidays,  they  observe  all  national  holidays. NATIONAL   HOLIDAYS Naval  ships,  stations,  and  activities  observe the  following  national  holidays  and  such  other days  as  may  be  designated  by  the  President: New  Year’s  Day,  the  1st  of  January Martin  Luther  King  Day,  the  third  Monday  in January 8-10
