    Welcome aboard, Jim!

    Interesting question. The flag code says that the flag "should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free." One might argue that this display would violate that, especially if the sail were reefed (it looks like it has at least two rows of reef points). However, I'd argue that this is not actually a flag, but a sail decorated with a flag motif. It isn't overtly disrespectful (quite the contrary), and it sure looks great!
