The International system of maritime code signal flags is a signaling system where a flag represents a letter of the alphabet or a specified maritime meaning, which is then used to communicate between vessels.  Here is a picture of all the international maritime code signal flags:



Various methods the flags are used as signals include:

  • Each code signal flag spells an alphabetic message, letter by letter
  • Individual code signal flags have specific and standard meanings such as diving support vessels raise the "A" code signal flag indicating their inability to move from their current location because they have a diver underwater
  • One or more code signal flags form a code word whose meaning can be looked up in a code book in each vessel
  • In yacht racing and dinghy racing code signal flags have other meanings like the "P" code signal flag is used as the "preparatory" flag to indicate an imminent start, and the "S" code signal flag means "shortened course"

All of our nautical code signal flags are sewn by our seamstresses here in Florida using only the highest quality marine grade UV treated 200 denier nylon designed to dry quickly and fly easily.
