In  addition,  a  ship  of  the  Navy  passing  close aboard a ship or naval  station  displaying  the  flag  of the  officials   indicated   therein   renders   the   honors prescribed in figure 8-2. When a ship displaying such flag passes close aboard a naval station, that station also renders the honors prescribed in figure 8-2 when practicable. PASSING HONORS TO OFFICIALS AND OFFICERS EMBARKED IN BOATS A ship of the Navy being passed close aboard by a boat displaying the flag or pennant of the indicated officials and officers renders the honors prescribed in figure 8-3. Persons  on  the  quarterdeck  salute  when  boats pass  close  aboard  in  which  a  flag  officer,  a  unit commander,  or  a  commanding  officer  is  embarked under the following circumstances: When  the  officer  in  the  boat  is  in  uniform, which   is   indicated   by   the   display   of   the national ensign in United States ports When  a  miniature  of  a  flag  or  pennant  is displayed  in  addition  to  the  national  ensign in foreign ports 8-6
