A fully playable standard 52 card poker deck. The need for ship-to-ship communications has existed since man took to the sea, and communication flags extended communication beyond the range of the human voice. Visual communication systems developed over the centuries, slowly evolving into codes of letters and numbers. By the late 1800's most maritime nations used variations of the International Code of Signals, developed in 1857 by he British Board of Trade. The United Nations International Maritime Organization standardized the International Code in 1965__the enclosed deck of cards employs this system. The names of each flag (Foxtrot, Mike, Romeo, etc.) were chosen so they would not be confused with other, similar sounding words. These flags and phonetic names are widely used by yacht race committees, pleasure yachts and ships to signal one another. Increase your enjoyment and understanding of the marine community--learn to recognize and read the International Code Flags!
