Notes

 

When you see the “Numerical” flag it means that everything after is a number. When the letter "J" (Alphabetic) flag is shown in the number, it means that the number is finished and the next sequence is alphabetic.

Semaphore flags are usually red and yellow for signalling between ships at sea and blue and white for signalling to and from land.
