The old order changeth..........

In the worlds of Alfred Lord Tennyson "The old order changeth yielding place to the new", and so it was this morning when for the first time ships of the RCN flew the naval ensign from the stern and the Canadian flag, as jack, from the bow.

HMCS Halifax, tied up at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic for Battle of the Atlantic Sunday displayed the new order for all to see.

Halifax's array of new radars installed during its FELEX refit makes it hard to read the other signals flown from the ship's mast.
For an explanation of the new protocol see:

The way it is explained is that the former naval jack has become the naval ensign, and the Canadian flag has been adopted as the jack.
