I've been dying to post these maritime signal flags for the longest time, y'all. In fact, they were on my agenda as a free printable for last summer. However, I sometimes have more ideas than I do time to actually carry them out! These are just meant for decorative purposes...but aren't they just so fun!? I put together the A-Z signal flags in one set below. They each have their own meaning and it's kind of fun to even use them to spell out words (perfect for a nursery or kid's room!). In the print file, I included which letter each flag represents. For my photos, I didn't arrange them in any intentional fashion...so if I accidentally spelled out something a little naughty, I do apologize! ;)

I just love nautical decor in the summertime, y'all. I now have these pinned up everywhere. Technically, they *should* be hung on the side angle...but I just like them hanging like above. The first flag on the left (above) is the B, or Bravo flag, signaling: "I am taking in or discharging or carrying dangerous goods." They all have such interesting meanings. If you have a minute, look them all up and find out all of the history on the maritime flags....super fascinating.

They're perfect anytime of the year, but I love them with my summer decor. 
I'm going to put a second set out on my porch, too.

I think they go well with my nautical anchor printable.
I'll be posting this next month over at the Real Housemoms blog.
I'll come back and post a link once it's available.

I designed these with a small white top border that you can use to punch your holes.
I didn't want the holes to interfere with the design of the flags.
I thought the red and white baker's twine was super cute in these!

  2. My dad is crazy about boats. We even had a plague made for his home office that says "Captain's Cabin." I'd love to use your printables to make him a birthday banner.
