                       What is Semaphore?

 • Semaphore is a method of visual signaling. It is most commonly done
   by the use of flags but can also be done with lights. Before the
   invention of the telegraph, signaling from high towers was used to
   transmit messages between distant points. In the Navy it is used to
   signal between ships by sailors manipulating flags to indicate the
   different letters of the alphabet.

                  The Semaphore Flag




                The flags are usually
                square, red and white,
                divided diagonally with
                the red portion in the
                upper hoist.
