Before radios and GPS, ships at sea communicated using signal flags. Each colorful flag stood for a letter of the alphabet as well as a full message. For example, the square flag that's half yellow and half blue stands for the letter K, or kilo, and also signaled that the boat wanted to communicate—so other ships knew they wanted to approach.
Today signal flags are mostly used only for formal occasions and at regattas, but they still speak to our love of the open water and the feeling of wind in our sails, not to mention our childhood love of codes and secret signals.
