Pride of Britain already under flag of Cyprus, Pride of France currently in Hamburg and will be re-flagged whilst there.

Britain and France are spirited
Only the ports, Burgundy and Kent are proud
EUROPEAN SEAWAY as well, I suppose.

P&O obviously prefers an EU flag.

Correct David, didn't think that sounded right when I typed it  Angry, taking to much notice of the article.

It will be interesting to see what happens if the UK decides to cancel Brexit, which is looking increasingly possible. They say there will be no changes to their crewing arrangements. There, too, we shall see!

The latest to leave UK flag is Maersk, again blaming Brexit - it was announced by the head of the Nautilus Officers Union yesterday.
As well as transferring their ships to an EU flag, they're also ceasing UK cadet training and recruitment immediately.

Maersk have had no ships under the British flag for several years now.

They still have some container ships and 1 tanker (on charter to the UK MOD) which are UK flag.
