Signal Flag Translator- How to use

Quite a number of people go to the signal flag translator to see what their fabric banners would like spelled out in signal flags before they order. MarineWayPoints.com has kindly allowed us to use their translator. The translator takes regular letters and turns them into signal flag.      Here is a screen capture of our page on our website.

The next picture is a screen capture showing what the flags look like.

Note the following:
The flags you see are oriented vertically. Their casing is to the left, with the flag “hanging” to the right.

Our flags are designed to hang horizontally, with the casing and rope at the top. They’re exactly the same patterns, just rotated 90-degrees clockwise.
(Tilt your head to the left and you’ll see.)

To see two or more words in a row, use a hyphen ( – ) between each word.

Below is a picture of a Vertical signal flag banner that spells LIAM as used in the example above.
