Courtesy Flag – People’s Republic of China 18 x 27in
Made from UV protective nylon, this PRC courtesy flag suits small to medium sailing vessels wishing to show their respect when entering Chinese waters. The flag has the 5 stars sewn onto the red field rather than just simplly printed on. Finished with hems heading rope and toggle.
We use a local manufacturer for these flags and can have them made to any size needed as well as most countries. A Hong Kong courtesy flag is also available in the same size. We also offer code flags and other signalling items.

Red with a large yellow five-pointed star and four smaller yellow five-pointed stars (arranged in a vertical arc toward the middle of the flag) in the upper hoist-side corner; the color red represents revolution, while the stars symbolize the four social classes – the working class, the peasantry, the urban petty bourgeoisie, and the national bourgeoisie (capitalists) – united under the Communist Party of China.
What is a Courtesy Flag?
A nation’s courtesy flag should be flown by all vessels when entering a nation’s territorial waters for the first time (and for the duration of the stay in that country’s territorial waters).
The flag should be flown from the starboard spreader in a position above any other flag. Motor vessels that do not have a dedicated signal halyard should fly the courtesy flag from a prominent position instead (e.g. the VHF aerial).
The courtesy flag should be in a good state and of reasonable size as some officials take offense at yachts that fly a torn or tiny flag.
