While rare, there is a blue Canadian ensign...similar to the Brit blue duster but with the Canadian coat of arms in the blue field. Its one of the prettiest flags around! We fly it on Sundays. As a lark, when a Canadian naval vessel (usually cadet driven) is seen, we contact on channel 16, advising a flag salute (dipping of the flag) will be undertaken when we pass. You ought to see the scrambling on deck and the puzzlement when they see the blue ensign! Cheers...the Viceroy.

Hi, A Brit who is serving in or retired from the Royal Navy with a UK registered yacht must be a member of the Royal Naval Sailing Association to legally fly the Blue Ensign. I think there are affilliated associations that meet this requirement also.
