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.
100802-N-4830B-084 SEA OF JAPAN (August 2, 2010) Quartermaster 3rd Class Alexander Davis, from Richmond, Calif., and Quartermaster 2nd Class Parker Mesch, from Great Falls, Mont., lower signal flags during an emergency breakaway drill aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73). George Washington, the Navy’s only permanently forward-deployed aircraft carrier, is underway helping to ensure security and stability in the western Pacific Ocean.

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.
Anything you can spell, we can make!
