Flag Combinations

The purpose of the International Code of Signals is to provide ways and means of communication in situations related essen- tially to safety of navigation and persons, especially when language difficulties arise. In the preparation of the Code, account was taken of the fact that wide application of radiotelephony and radiotelegraphy can provide simple and effective means of communication in plain language whenever language difficulties do not exist.
