A ship is said to be ‘flying a flag of convenience’ when the flag on the stern of the ship, representing the country of the Port of Registration, is not the home country of the company which owns the ship. This practice is also known as an ‘open register’, and enables ship owners to choose a ship registration regime which may have less prescreptive maritime regulations and lower taxes.
