In my home bar I've got a nautical wall, and being a big fan of the old british navy, I thought it would be cool to have some sort of navel or colonial or commonwealth flag that might be appropriate for the tiki theme, and I wondered if anyone had any thoughts. Maybe the flag of the Cook Islands?

Google blue fleet, and red fleet ensign. There are several national flags based on those ensigns.

Battleship size signal flags are impressive decorations. The designs are not complicated, so some cotton quilt fabric from the local store is about all the digging needed to make some.

At most Marine stores you can get some alphabet pennants. I use the to spell out FOM with a leading 5 and following 2...

The secondary meaning for the flag series would be “5.I am disabled. Man Overboard. I am stopped. 2.” So fly them at your own risk.

Of course, a Cook Islands flag, State of Hawaii flag or any other choice would work too.
