Even in today's technologically advanced society, nautical flags are still used to warn boats of impending weather. Small boat stations throughout the country will use flags to alert boaters of impending weather alerts such as small craft advisories as well as gale, storm and hurricane warnings.

All of our nautical flags are constructed from high quality materials that are able to withstand the sometimes harsh elements at sea. Our everyday low prices make our nautical pennants and hurricane warning flags affordable for every budget.
The National Weather Service discontinued the warning system in February of 1989. However, the Coast Guard reestablished it in June of 2007. The age-old flag system works even when technology goes down. Heading out to sea? Be prepared with your nautical storm warning flags.
