White Ensign er betegnelsen på et orlogsflag dannet efter britisk mønster. Den egentlige White Ensign har en hvid flagdug, rødt kors og det britiske unionsflag Union Jack i det øvre felt ved stangen.

Flere tidligere britiske kolonier har videreført brugen af White ensign med visse modifikationer, i de enkleste erstatter nationalflaget for det respektive land unionsflaget i kantonen. I nogle tilfælde er korset fjernet, som f.eks. i Australiens, New Zealands og Malaysias tilfælde, eller et særlig mærke sat i den frie ende af flaget. Sydafrika fører som orlogsflag en White Ensign med grønt kors. Litauen, som aldrig har vært underlagt Storbritannien, har et blåt kors i sit orlogsflag.

HMS Trafalgar, a Trafalgar Class Attack Submarine, on transit to the fleet review in Portsmouth Dockyard, part of the Trafalgar 200 celebrations.

In this Trafalgar bicentennial year, the Royal Navy will be at the heart of the Sea Britain 2005 programme and will be marking the occasion with a series of major public events in June/July and October. The programme is entitled "Trafalgar 200 Past Glories, Future Horizons".

The summer events in Portsmouth began with the International Fleet Review in the Solent on 28th June. Some 35 nations attended, representing every continent. This was be the largest international gathering of vessels to be reviewed by Her Majesty the Queen and included warships, tall ships, merchant ships and yachts, over 160 vessels in total.

Her Majesty the Queen, The Lord High Admiral, reviewed The Fleet from HMS Endurance, witnessed a steam past, and sail past of 300 warships, tall ships and private yachts. There was also a contemporary element of informality to this event given by the focus on youth.
