Civil (Red) Ensign

At United Kingdom - Colonial Flags it is noted that a red ensign is authorized for the British Virgin Islands.

Al Kirsch asked: "Is it actually used, as opposed to just authorized? The few times I saw a defaced red ensign in the Caribbean I assumed the vessel was from Bermuda. Hard to make out the emblems at a distance."
My answer is: Yes, it is used! I saw one BVI red ensign in Saint-Tropez one month ago.

Last summer I saw a pleasure craft, which was registered in the British Virgin Islands,  flying the BVI Red Ensign while docked at a pier on Long Island.
