8109-22. [ Ensign , U. S. Power Squadron c.1990’s.] Organized in 1914, USPS is a non profit, educational organization dedicated to making boating safer and more enjoyable by teaching classes in seamanship, navigation and related subjects. The term "Power Squadrons" in the name dates to their founding in 1914 by the power boat division of the Boston Yacht Club. Following the first World War, their ranks broadened to include all types of boats and sailors. While they have many joint programs with the United States Coast Guard, the CG Auxiliary, and the National Ocean Services division of NOAA, USPS is a private, totally self-supporting organization.  Members are boating families who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education. USPS has some 60,000 members organized into 450 squadrons across the country and in some US territories. USPS is the world's largest non-profit boating organization and has been honored by three US presidents for its civic contributions. This U.S. Power squadron ensign dates probably from the 1950-70’s and would have been flown from a private power boat by a squadron member. The USPS ensign is flown as a signal to others that the boat is commanded by an active member of USPS in good standing. The preferred location for flying the USPS ensign is the starboard yardarm or spreader, underway or at anchor, or made fast to shore, on motor and sailing craft. It may be flown from the stern staff in place of the U.S. or yacht ensign, but this is usually done only on smaller boats that lack a mast. On sailboats underway, it may be flown from the aftermost peak or leech in place of other ensigns. The USPS ensign may be flown at its proper location on boats displaying the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary ensign to indicate the owner is a member of both organizations; however, it cannot be flown if the craft is under Coast Guard orders. This flag is professionally manufactured and machine sewn. It has a white fouled anchor stitched on a red background circled by 13 stars individually sewn on both sides. It has 6 vertical white stripes and 7 vertical blue stripes. Each of the white and blue stripes are 1 3/8” wide. Flag is made of nylon and has reinforced edge with 2 brass grommets. Marked “Nyl-Glo Annin & Co… Made in USA”. Flag measures 12" x 18", is bright and clean, new, in original packing. (M). $44.

Flag is made of 100% polyester and bears the present design consisting of U. S. eagle and shield with bunched stars above, with "United States Coast Guard" above, and "Semper Paratus 1790" below.

22539. [flag] U. S. Coast Guard SOPA Pennant. c.1940-50’s. Official U. S. Coast Guard Senior Officer Present Afloat (SOPA) pennant. Pennant consists of a dark blue equilateral triangle measuring 48 inches on each side with Coast Guard shield on crossed anchors sewn on in center. Ensign manufactured for Coast Guard use, made of 100% wool bunting. Whenever two or more ships are in the same port, the ship on which the senior officer is embarked flies the senior officer present afloat pennant, unless he is flying a personal flag clearly indicating his seniority. The pennant is displayed from the inboard halyard of the starboard main yardarm, but only while in port. For many years, the U.S. Coast Guard’s "SOPA" pennant was a blue triangle (now the "subdivision" signal pennant), but with the establishment of standard signal procedures for NATO, it was replaced in about 1950 by the "starboard" signal pennant. Family who owned these three flags indicated that this came off a WW II convoy escort but we have no proof. There is considerable lettering on the hem but too light to make out. No manufacturer noted. Condition clean, crisp and bright, moderate moth holes but most fairly small 1/8", a few Ľ". Extremely rare, sought after for display. (VG-). $148 net.

 

25113. (reproduction flag) Confederate States of America Second Naval Jack. First adopted in 1863, this is the CSA's Second Naval Jack. Navy jacks, in the American flags tradition, are copied directly from the British Navy. These are the cantons of the national flags in a rectangular format only. It omits the thin white border around the outside. Thus, when the First National flag was in vogue the First CS Navy Jack was a blue rectangle with up to 13 white stars in a circle on it. Only one of these flags still exists today. CS naval flags were supplied by the different ports they called home - and they were made under contract by private citizens for the vessels. The Second Navy Jack was adopted when the Second National flag came about. It is true to form for naval jacks for American warships - rectangular configuration of the canton of the national flag. The jack was a large flag flown only from the bow of the ship and only when the ship was in port or fully dressed in naval parade colors. The ship's battle flag was the national colors flown only from the stern flag staff. This flag was used mainly by the Confederate Navy from 1863 onward, but also by some ground troops. This vintage reproduction is printed on 100% cotton, made in Japan for by the S. J. Charia & Co. 34” x 58”. A few small water stains, small tear to corner, otherwise clean and crisp. (VG).  $28.

RA-409. [flag] United States Maritime Commission flag/ensign. c.1940’s.  Rare official printed on wool United States Maritime Commission flag. The United States Maritime Commission was an independent executive agency of the US Federal government that was created by the Merchant Marine Act of 1936, and replaced the U.S. Shipping Board which had existed since World War I. It was intended to formulate a merchant shipbuilding program to design and build five hundred modern merchant cargo ships to replace the World War I vintage vessels that comprised the bulk of the U.S. Merchant Marine, and to administer a subsidy system authorized by the Act to offset the cost differential between building in the U.S. and operating ships under the American flag. It also formed the U.S. Maritime Service for the training of seagoing ship's officers to man the new fleet. This rare flag measures 3’ 8” by 6’ 3”  and is typical of the traditional Maritime Commission flags with fouled anchor on a shield, surrounded by “United States Maritime Commission 1936”.

The pattern resembles a clock face divided into eight positions: up, down, out, high, low, for each of the left and right hands (LH and RH) six letters require the hand to be brought across the body so that both flags are on the same side. This system was used bu the Life Saving Service and early Coast Guard for communicating with vessels, and is still used during underway replenishment at sea and is acceptable for emergency communication in daylight or, using lighted wands instead of flags, at night. The flag is square, this one being red and yellow, divided diagonally (“Oscar”). Flag is as original but without handles. Flag is as new, having never been used and date from the 1940’s. (F-).
