The ship in this photo is displaying an interesting quirk: The ensign (flag) is absent from the flagstaff (stern) but is flying from the gaff (aftermast) as if underway but the jack is flying from the jackstaff (bow) as if anchored or moored and the ship is clearly at anchor. This ship was either caught in act of shifting colors (unlikely given the strain on the anchor chain) or life aboard is pretty relaxed at this point or perhaps both.
