I was watching PT-109 and well have a question

When the PT boat is moored to the dock the colors fly aft and when the boat shears away under power the stern colors are furled/stowed and another national ensign is hoisted on the mainmast.
Since the film had actual PT vets as advisors I am guessing this is accurate practice.
Still done with small craft?
May I ask the reasoning behind the practice?
