    Vote on the Poll above this post

    I’m ordering a round of these flags. Just getting a head count for them. If you haven’t responded yet please respond to this thread if you want one. They will be white with navy blue print . With the attached logo. Need to get a vote of whether to get triangle flags or rectangle . I’m just charging what it costs me plus shipping . Most likely $30 all in .

    Such a tough decision, I have no real opinion either way to be honest. I'm in for one when everyone else decides on the shape!

    Triangular - I think it would look better on the bow. Please put me in for one either way. Thanks Bill.

    I lean towards triangle but voted rectangle as I think the logo will be larger

    I agree and think the oval on a triangle looks weird. Whichever way it goes it will go up the outrigger just fine.

    I’ll take one, either shape is fine.

    Although, if I take one to hang at a bar, do said bars only take triangles? I can’t recall seeing rectangles, but I never looked too closely.

    Please sign me up, square shaped or pear shaped

    FWIW...from the United States Power Squadron Flag and Etiquette Committee
    Association Flags
    Flag's of associations, e.g., a cruising club or a USPS district, are generally rectangular and may be worn on a spreader halyard. Many flags or signals are flown from the spreader halyards but—usually—only one should be worn on each halyard. If your boat is rigged with one starboard halyard and one port halyard, fly the signal of superior dignity on the starboard side and the signal of lesser dignity on the port side. If you have more than one halyard on each side of your boat, fly the superior signal form the outboard starboard halyard, with other signals to its left, in order of decreasing dignity. They may be balanced, insofar as possible, starboard and port.
