This saying comes from this nautical fact:
This expression comes from the practice of admirals and officers having their own flags aboard ship, a peg attaching them to the mast. Superior officers would have their flags positioned higher on the mast than subordinates. If a senior officer handed over his command to a junior officer the senior officer’s flag would have to be flown in a subordinate position.


WHAT IS THE SAYING?
"TAKEN DOWN A PEG"

Congratulation FishinChick!


and your winnings are:
A home on the range where the deer and the antelope play...and an ocean on your ranch where you'll go fishing all day
