hoisting,   lowering,   or   flying   of   the   ensign,   it displays the ensign on the triatic stay.) Getting  underway  and  coming  to  anchor Falling in with other ships Cruising near land During  battle The  union  jack  displayed  from  the  jackstaff is  the  size  of  the  union  of  the  national  ensign displayed  from  the  flagstaff. Ships display the union jack at a yardarm to denote  that  a  general  court-martial  or  court  of inquiry is in session. NATIONAL  ENSIGN  AT COMMANDS   ASHORE The national ensign is displayed from 0800 to sunset near the headquarters of every command ashore.  When  the  proximity  of  headquarters  of two  or  more  commands  makes  the  display  of separate   ensigns   inappropriate,   the   ensign   is displayed  at  the  headquarters  of  the  senior. DISPLAY  OF  NATIONAL ENSIGN  IN  BOATS Waterborne boats of the naval service display the  national  ensign  at  the  following  times: When  underway  during  daylight  in  a foreign  port During  dress  ship  or  full-dress  ship When  going  alongside  a  foreign  vessel When an officer or official is embarked on an   official   occasion When  a  flag  or  general  officer,  unit commander,  commanding  officer,  or  chief of staff, in uniform, is embarked in a boat assigned  to  the  officer’s  command  or  in one assigned for that officer’s personal use At such other times as maybe prescribed by  the  senior  officer  present DIPPING  THE  NATIONAL  ENSIGN When  any  vessel,  under  the  United  States registry   or   the   registry   of   a   nation   formally recognized   by   the   United   States   government, salutes a ship of the Navy by dipping its ensign, it  is  answered  dip  for  dip.  If  not  already  being displayed, the national ensign is hoisted for the purpose  of  answering  the  dip.  An  ensign  being displayed at half-mast is hoisted to the truck or peak  before  a  dip  is  answered. No ship of the Navy dips the national ensign unless  in  return  for  such  compliment. Of the colors carried by a naval force on shore, only   the   battalion   or   regimental   colors   are dipped  in  rendering  or  acknowledging  a  salute. Submarines,  or  other  vessels  on  which  dipping would endanger the lives of its personnel, are not required  to  dip  the  ensign. HALF-MASTING   THE   NATIONAL ENSIGN  AND  UNION  JACK When the national ensign is half-masted, if not previously hoisted, it is first hoisted to the truck or peak and then lowered to half-mast. Before it is  lowered  from  half-mast,  the  ensign  is  hoisted to  the  truck  or  peak  and  then  lowered. When the national ensign is half-masted, the union  jack,  if  displayed  from  the  jackstaff,  is likewise  half-masted.  Personal  flags,  command pennants,  and  commission  pennants  are  not displayed  at  half-mast  except  as  prescribed  in Navy  Regulations   for  a  deceased  official  or officer. When directed by the President, the national ensign is flown at half-staff at military facilities and aboard naval vessels and at stations abroad. It is flown at half-mast whether or not the national ensign   of   another   nation   is   flown   full-staff alongside  that  of  the  United  States. BOW  INSIGNIA  AND  FLAGSTAFF INSIGNIA  FOR  BOATS A  boat  regularly  assigned  to  an  officer  for personal  use  carries  insignia  on  each  bow  as follows: For a flag or general officer, the stars as arranged  in  that  officer’s  flag For  a  unit  commander  who  is  not  a  flag officer, a replica of the command pennant For  a  commanding  officer  or  for  a  chief of staff who is not a flag officer, an arrow 8-9
