Nautical Flags - British Ensigns
An ensign is the national flag flown on a vessel to indicate nationality. The ensign is the largest flag, generally flown at the stern of the ship while in port. The naval ensign, used on warships, may be different from the civil ensign or the yacht ensign, All of our ensigns are made using MOD grade materials in either hand sewn or dye sublimated options in 10 sizes, from 0.75 yards to 6 yards.

Nautical Flags - ICOS Signal Flag
The purpose of the International Code of Signals is to provide ways and means of communication in situations related essentially to safety of navigation and persons, especially when language difficulties arise. It has done this by first establishing a standardized alphabet (the letters A to Z and the ten digits), along with a spoken form of each letter (to avoid confusing similar-sounding letters, such as 'b', 'p', and 'v'), and associating this alphabet with standardized flags.
