I have a lot of experience with free floating buoys in the open ocean for
oceanographic research, Legal requirements are pretty much non-existent, so
do what you'd like. (Think of unregulated crab pots.)
Also, visibility is a two edged sword. A flag might make it easier for you
to find & recover, but it also attracts vandals and souvenir hunters.
Surprising how many there are, even at sea.
