International Maritime
Signal Code Flags Of The Sea

I

nternational maritime signal flags refer to various flags
used to communicate with ships, yachts and people on or
near the sea.

The principal system of flags and associated codes is the
International Code of Signals. Various navies have flag systems
with additional flags and codes, and other flags are used in
special uses, or have historical significance.
* There are various methods by which the flags can be used as
signals
* Each flag spells an alphabetic message, letter by letter
* One or more flags form a code word whose meaning can be
looked up in a code book held by both parties
* In yacht racing and dinghy racing, flags have other
meanings

Delta

Charlie

Bravo

Alfa

"Thought is the Wind, Knowledge the Sail
& Mankind the Vessel"

MISSION STATEMENT
The Delaware County Bar Association exists to serve its
members and the community at large by fostering respect for
the law, by advancing the competent, collegial, and ethical
practice of the legal profession, and by creating opportunities
for attorneys, judges, and the public to work collaboratively for
justice.
HISTORY OF THE DELAWARE COUNTY BAR ASSOCIATION
The Delaware County Bar Association, originally known as
the Delaware County Law Library Association, was incorporated
in 1872. The formation of the Association preceded the
designation of Delaware County as a separate judicial district in
1879. The first President of the DCBA was Edward Darlington,
who was one of many illustrious leaders of the Bar.

NATO uses the same flags, with a few unique to warships,
alone or in short sets to communicate various unclassified
messages. The NATO usage generally differs from the
international meanings, and therefore warships will fly the Code/
answer flag above the signal to indicate it should be read using
the international meaning.
D Delta: "Keep clear of me; I am maneuvering
with difficulty."
C Charlie: "Affirmative"
B Bravo: "I am taking in or discharging or carrying
dangerous goods." (Originally used by the Royal Navy
specifically for military explosives.)
A Alfa: "I have a diver down; keep well clear at
slow speed."

From 1872-1966, the DCBA was housed in the Delaware
County Courthouse. During this period, the number of
members increased dramatically. In response to this growth, the
Association built and dedicated its current building at 335 West
Front Street in 1966.
In 1974, the Board of Directors hired the DCBA's first
Executive Director, Elizabeth C. Price. Her leadership became
the model for other bar associations throughout the state, and
she was instrumental in building the Association into a truly
professional organization.
Today, the Delaware County Bar Association is a vibrant
organization with approximately 1,200 members. Through
membership in the DCBA, attorneys enjoy quality CLE
programming, a subscription to the Delaware County Legal
Journal, use of the conference facilities at the Bar Building at no
cost, and the camaraderie of other lawyers. Through its Board
and staff, the DCBA is dedicated to supporting its members and
looks forward to remaining the destination for legal resources in
Delaware County. *
