O knihe

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! A British ensign in British maritime law and custom, is the identifying flag flown to designate a British ship, either military or civilian. Such flags display the United Kingdom Union Flag in the canton (the upper corner next the staff), with either a red, white or blue field, dependant on whether the vessel is civilian, naval, or in a special category. These are known as the red, white, and blue ensigns respectively. Outside the nautical sphere, ensigns are used to designate many other military units, government departments and administrative divisions. These flags are modelled on the red, white, and blue naval ensigns, but may use different colours for the field, and be "defaced" by the addition of a badge or symbol, for example the sky blue with concentric red, white and blue circles of the Royal Air Force ensign. Today's white ensign, as used by Royal Navy ships, incorporates the St George's Cross (St George's Ensign). Defaced white ensigns include that of the British Antarctic Territory and that formerly used by the Royal Yacht Club (now the Royal Yacht Squadron).
