A ship may sail under the flag of one state only, and may not change its flag during a voyage or while in a port of call unless there is a real transfer of ownership or change of registry1. A ship which sails under the flags of two or more states, using them as flags of convenience, may not claim the nationality of any of those flag states against another state and may be treated as a ship with no nationality
