 Post subject: What flag?
PostPosted: Sun Oct 25, 2020 5:04 pm 
What flag would a passenger cargo steamer of c.1900 have flown from its jigger mast? I can see a pennant in photos but can't make out the details. The ship was British registered but the line was American owned.
The foremast flew the stars and stripes, the mainmast flew the house flag and the mizzen flew a pennant with the ship's name on it, but what about the fourth mast. The ship I am modeling never carried mail as far as I know, at least not British mail, so it wasn't a Royal Mail pennant. US mail pennant?
