U - Uniform Code Flag.
U - Uniform Code Flag. This flag is part of the International Code of Signals (ICS), which is an international system of signals and codes for use by vessels to communicate important messages regarding safety of navigation and related matters. The pictured flags are the most recent evolution of a wide variety of maritime flag signalling systems.
The purpose of these flags is to provide ways and means of communication in situations related to navigation and persons, especially when language difficulties arise. This has been done by first establishing a standardised alphabet (and 10 digits) along with a spoken form of each letter and associating this alphabet with standardised flags.
This flag is a fully sewn flag with the design appliqued on, and is 30" x 24" in size.
