PW-00818 Signal Flags
Seaworthy nylon flags in rich, durable colors, ideal for marine use.
As early as the first decades of the 20th century, a series of special signal flags had been adopted for use by yachts to convey certain messages. Made from 100% Marine Nylon and ideal for outdoor use. Strong and durable. Special parachute treated cloth to reduce sun and chemical deterioration and fading. Always a “must have” for the serious boater.
Size: 12″ x 18″
A – Absent Flag
The solid blue “owner absent” flag is flown from the starboard main spreader to prevent visitors from having to pull a rowboat across the harbor in order to find out that only the hired crew is aboard to receive them.
B – Meal Flag
A plain white flag at the starboard main spreader says the owner is at the dinner table. Only flown in daylight hours while not under way.
C – Guest Flag
Use to indicate that, although the owner is not aboard, a guest is. Just in case you are coming across to visit the guest instead of the owner.
D – Skin Diver Flag
To be used to notify boats that a diver is in the water and to be careful.
