A colorful pocket visual guide that contains an alphanumeric list of all of the International code of signals Flags (ICS) to help adults or children learn about nautical flags & Morse Code and the NATO phonetic alphabet.
Commonly seen dressing ships on special occasions, signal flags are used internationally to signal between two ships or between ship and shore. A set should be carried by every well-equipped boat. It is important for sailors and boaters to understand these flags and their meanings. Each letter of the alphabet has a different ICS message associated. Flags can also be used to spell out words individually.
