Canadian Coast Guard Jack

[Canadian Coast Guard Jack] image by Bernard Collin

These flags came into force in 1962 at the same time as the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) Crest. Blue ensigns have been flown on CCG Vessels between 1870 and 1965 with the different official shields, then the red and white maple leaf flag.
Bernard Collin, 03 December, 1999

The ratio is 1:2. It is a vertically divided flag into white and blue having ratio est. 2:1. Upon the white field is a red maple leaf. Upon the blue side are
two golden fish, probably dolphins.

On flying flags aboard Canadian Coast Guard ships

The personal Flag of a Head of State is to be hoisted and worn continuously at the main masthead, or equivalent position, whenever any of the following personages are aboard:

  • a. The Sovereign;
  • b. The Governor General;
  • c. The Lieutenant-Governor of a province when the ship is in the waters of that province;
  • d. A member of The Royal Family (i.e. the family of the Sovereign of Canada)
  • e. A foreign Head of State; or
  • f. A member of a foreign reigning Royal Family.

At night, the Flag(s) of Head of State may be illuminated.

Flags of Head of State are never put at half-mast.

The hours that are related to hoisting, shifting or striking a Flag of a Head of State are to be recorded in the ship's log.

On the flags of the provinces, it is noted that they are worn on the port yardarm or equivalent position on a provincial holiday if the ship is based in that province and actually in the waters of the province at the time; when the Lieutenant-Governor of the province is aboard provided that the ship is based in the province; and when the Premier of member of the Executive Council of the province in which the ship is situation is aboard.

The Canadian flag on the CCG vessels are half-masted for official mourning when authorized by the Commissioner of the CCG and in the presence of any warship or government ship having their colors half-masted. When a member of the ship's complement has died in service aboard, the directive states the flag may be half-masted to mark the mourning and when a funeral service is conducted aboard the vessel. Half-masting is defined as being hauled up and lowered to a position about 2/3 of the hoist.

Canadian Marine Rescue Auxiliary

[Marine Rescue Auxiliary ensign] image by Blas Delgado

http://reg.gg.ca/heraldry/pub-reg/project-pic.asp?lang=e&ProjectID=1590&ProjectElementID=5324 describes it as "A triangular pennant Argent adextré and charged with a maple leaf Gules impaling Azure a dolphin naiant contourné Or", and notes "The pennant evokes the Canadian flag and is a modification of the Canadian Coast Guard Jack, making the auxiliary ships distinct from the Canadian Coast Guard fleet. This emblem combines the red and white colours of Canada with the blue of waterways. The maple leaf evokes Canada and the dolphin represents the ships that ply the coasts of Canada. As well, dolphins are regarded as ancient talismans and helpers of all mariners."


Coast Guard Auxiliary

The Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary is similar to the Canadian Marine Rescue Auxiliary pennant, above, but with a silver dolphin.
Jan Mertens 2 October 2005

Pennant described as "per pale Argent and Azure dexter a maple leaf Gules, sinister a dolphin naiant contourné Argent, the whole adextré Gules" at http://reg.gg.ca/heraldry/pub-reg/project-pic.asp?lang=e&ProjectID=2331&ProjectElementID=8247.  The symbolism evokes the Canadian flag. The dolphin is white (heraldic Argent) to differentiate the pennant of the Auxiliary fleet from the pennant of the main fleet, whose corresponding element is yellow (heraldic Or).
