Although each signal flag has a meaning of it’s own when you use it conjecture with another signal flag it can also take on a whole new message. As an example the letter “A” means Alpha and the letter “B” means Bravo. When the two are put together it means “Abandon ship as fast as possible”.
Below I have put together a picture of different flag combinations.
There are many other combination’s and in the future I will show more on this blog. Because the flags are so colorful they can be seen from a great distance.
