let's assume that wind doesn't affect the direction of the boat.


now take the resultant as direction of flag makes an angle a1 with boats direction ==========

 tan a1 = (6sin(tan-1(1/2)))/(2root(5)+6cos(tan-1(1/2))

speed = root(20+36+24root(5)*cos(90-tan-1(1/2))

Velocity of boat towards east = 4 m/s

Velocity of wind and water = 2+6 = 8 m/s


tan θ = 4/8

θ = tan^-1(0.5)

θ = 27 degrees west north.
