You already know one knot…the one that you use to tie your shoes! Knot tying was a creative outlet for sailors on long voyages who had many idle hours to fill. Their knot making was very important to life on a ship and they used it to create many necessary items including the hammocks they slept in!

International Code Flags or Signaling Flags
Although you may never see them displayed except at fleet parades, around naval installations, and areas with heavy international shipping traffic, International code flags are used to signal between two ships or between ship and shore. Also called signaling flags, they are a set of flags of different colors, shapes and markings which used singly or in combination have different meanings. The flags include 26 square flags which depict the letters of the alphabet, ten numeral pendants, one answering pendant, and three substituters or repeaters.
All of us can communicate with flags!
