The White Ensign is worn at the Gaff peak or Ensign Staff

 

The Cross of St George, which is the flag of Vice Admiral of the White, is worn at the Fore masthead.

 

The Union flag by special order of Nelson was worn at the Fore top mast stay at Trafalgar, but is usually worn at the jack staff when a ship is in port.

 

The long pennant (which doesn't look long enough) is worn at the Main masthead. the one shown is the Common Pennant, but it is possible that the White Pennant was actually worn.

 

It may be the angle of the photo but the proportions of the flag set don't look right to me, the white ensign should be by far the largest.

 

Cheers,

 

B.E.
