This is a modern and practical manual on flags, ensigns, burgees and signals used at sea and on the shoreline. All possible types of flags and their combinations are discussed so that the reader can interpret them by their design, colour and hoisted position. Meanwhile he is guided with precision on the use of gflags on his own vessel. Points are clarified with numerous colour reproductions and diagrams showing correct drills. This definitive work has been extensively researched by a master of his subject. It tackles common misconceptions and should provide the answers for those heated flag etiquette debates which occur every so often! Additional chapters cover “Rights” and “Wrongs”, a brief history and the fully illustrated flags of all IMO nations.
