Swan Uppong
The Flags and Pennants


By tradition each boat flies the appropriate flag. Only the Queen's boat has two flags, the other five boats bear a single flag.

The Queen's boats each have a white flag depicting the royal crown and the royal cypher (the Queen's initials). The flag at the front on the main boat dipicts a swan with raised wings.
