Although we haven't hooked up a solid red-white-and-blue on our stern railing just yet, we did hoist a few flags aboard Kingsley. Captain wifey was on the grind and sent me up to our first spreader to attach an ol' US of A flag (for this guy - born in Iowa thank you ) and a Jamaican flag for captain wifey (she was raised there - represent!).
Folks here in the Pacific Northwest don't fly flags that much but bloggers are on it, spreading the knowledge - check:

P.S. - The real Jamaican flag doesn't really say 'Jamaica' on it, I bought this one cheap while I was down in the Virgin Islands last summer. The fact that I'm using it is so Jamaican...respect!
