Chapman Quick Reference Guide to Nautical Flags

Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2006 - Sports & Recreation - 24 pages
Nautical flags are more than decoration: each one has a specific meaning and a particular way it must be displayed. With Chapman's quick illustrated reference to the different kinds of flags and what they represent, no one need look like a know-nothing landlubber--or worse yet, cause a serious accident by using a signal flag improperly. This volume was produced in the same handy format as the Chapman Quick Reference Captain's Guide and Chapman Quick Reference First Aid Guide, spiral-bound at the top and with laminated pages. It contains information on which flags to fly, where and when to fly them, and what constitutes good flag etiquette. One by one, every type of flag is covered, from national and organizational flags to yacht ensigns, pennants, and distress flags.
