EVENING COLORS
While a guest of Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club, and while outdoors on the lawn, porch, Linburn terrace, west terrace or inside an outdoor tent, we invite you to participate in one of our longest standing traditions, Evening Colors. Adopted from the naval tradition, each day at sunset the ceremony commences with the striking of a ships bell immediately before the firing of the cannon, signaling the lowering of the American Flag. At this time, all in attendance are asked to face the American flag, standing at attention (in silence).

Though we can appreciate your possible excitement, it is not appropriate to applaud, cheer or talk until the flag is completely lowered and released from the halyard (line from which the flag is hoisted/lowered). If club members are present, Seawanhaka tradition is that a flag officer or senior member in attendance will signal the end of the ceremony by issuing the order to “Carry on!” to the spectators after the American Flag has been removed. (Note that guests inside the main clubhouse need not observe the foregoing formalities).
