National flags are occasionally seen as the spinnaker of a racing yacht (or similar), and of course, there is that well-known poster advertising the Marshall Plan after World War II.
Christopher Southworth, 4 October 2008


Of course, at one point arms were placed on sails, rather than flags.

There appear to have been two versions of the Marshal Plan sails: One where the flags together form a single sail, catching the wind of the ERP; the other is All Our Colours to the Mast, with each flag a separate sail.

There's another image, similar to the Marshall Plan poster with the separate sails, but I can't recall what it pertains to at the moment. Other posters, by the way, had the flags as the wings of a mill, notches of a key, twigs in a nest, as well as forming clothes.

Examples of flags on sails:

Belgian Navy training ship Zenobe Gramme, a Bermudan ketch built in 1961 shown at ova.larus.be.
