Dress Ship

While there is no formal layout to the sequence in which flags should be hoisted along the length of the vessel as part of the 'Dress Ship' process, everyone would agree the importance is that the flags must not be in such a layout as to convey any coded message.  

Military and civilian organisations will all have their own layout which has been determined as appropriate, however in order to help yachts and ships who aren't sure of the best sequence, this link will provide a format which should be acceptable.
