When sailing your boat to another country, you should always put the flag of the host country under the starboard tack. This is nautical custom and polite to the host country. The host country flag for Italy, like all our other country flags, is made of colorfast, 100% spun polyester, resistant to UV rays and therefore longer lasting. By the way, for quick and easy attachment, our flags are equipped with eyelet and ribbon. The host country flag Italy is available in 2 different sizes.
