Leaving Ushuaia at the start of the cruise, Minerva flew the very dramatic merchant ship ensign of Malta, where the vessel is registered:
At sea, Minerva had this little flag flying at the prow. That thing snapped in the wind!
Unfortunately, I didn’t ask and haven’t been able to figure out what this flag meant! I welcome any information.
And after some polite requests, we were able to get the Carleton flag flown off the stern for a couple days – good windy days, too!
