It has became more and more common to see ships hoisting what could
be called a European civil ensign, made of the
Union flag with the national flag of one of the member countries in
These civil ensigns have had until now no official status and should not replace the national civil ensign.
Such ensigns have been reported for Belgium, France, Germany (with also an 'ensign' of a different design), Greece, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
