  2. Wow Pacrat... nice flag if thats yours!

    You have got yourself an old Jack!

    The jack flag consists only of the stars of the US flag - and like the national flag the number of stars increased as states were added

    It is flown at the front of a ship or boat on the jack staff (at the front)

    I myself have only got a 50 star jack. mine is official from the U.S Navy
    I'll take a pic of it later for you... could i see a pic of yours?
