PostHeaderIcon Class Flag

a flag that indicates in which class or section a boat is competing. Sometimes the International Code flag for the number corresponding to the class’s starting order is used as the class flag. At other times, solid-color flags in differing colors are used. There is often a requirement to fly a class flag from the backstay on each competing boat, although on one-design boats it’s often optional to fly a class flag. The applicable Sailing Instructions indicate the starting order for multi-class races. Also known as a section flag.
