          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.
