A ship's flag often does a lot more than look pretty flapping from the mast - they also serve as a vital form of marine communication! Did you know you can spell out the entire alphabet just using Nautical Flags?
Captains have been using flags to communicate for hundreds of years. They say everything from "Can I get some help over here?" to "Watch Out - Danger Ahead!" What kind of danger you say? Well, maybe a fleet of sneaky Pirates!
