Signal Flags - full process colour printed.

Flags and codes were used in conjunction so that the meaning of signals could be changed at intervals - particularly when codes fell into the hands of the enemy.

The signal flags we have researched and had printed are correct for a specific point in time. it is extreamly difficult to be precise about the meaning of particular combinations, so none are given here.

However, signal flags greatly enhance the model and are highly recommended for a quality finish. They are available for the following nationalities:

 

FRENCH SIGNAL FLAGS of 1793

A set of signals 1-20

B

SPANISH SIGNAL FLAGS

A set of signals 1-20

A grid system with the 20 across the top and down the left side, gave 400 combinations for the signal code.

B

BRITISH SIGNAL FLAGS 1803-1810

Signals numbers 1-10 (2 sets include in pack)

B

AMERICAN SIGNAL FLAGS

A set of signals 1-10

Using combinations of these flags in different positions on the vessel, there were up to 1228 different signals.
