Communicating with Flags
A flag is often a way to communicate without saying a word. With this in mind, certain symbols have become known on the water as a particular language used by boaters of all countries. With the use of the International Code of Signals flags, a common language is developed and utilized to ensure a safe boating experience for all involved.
International Code Flags or Signaling Flags
Although you may never see them displayed except at fleet parades, around naval installations, and areas with heavy international shipping traffic, International code flags are used to signal between two ships or between ship and shore. Also called signaling flags, they are a set of flags of different colors, shapes and markings which used singly or in combination have different meanings. The flags include 26 square flags which depict the letters of the alphabet, ten numeral pendants, one answering pendant, and three substituters or repeaters.
All of us can communicate with flags!
