Signal flags on the USS George Washington

I am always amazed when I go to the Navy site and look at some of the pictures that they have released. The size of these flags has to be huge to see from a distance.

The checkerboard flag to the far right is the letter N and next to that is the letter A. The white and red flag is the letter H. Behind all of them is the yellow and blue which is the letter D. We rotate ours so that the flag hangs downwards with the casing at the top since our flags are more for decoration. Here is the same letters in our flags.
