Authentic nautical flags can make a colorful addition to your nautical décor! Our flags have been recovered from the decks of real working vessels. They were used for the ships to communicate with each other. Also, a ship could communicate to shore with flags. In addition, flags could have been used alone or in combinations of flags. A sailing vessel would also have had their country’s flag flying to identify themselves to other vessels. Flags are very colorful and come in various sizes as well. In addition, they are usually larger than flags seen in souvenir and gift shops.Our authentic nautical flags can be used to spell your family name, first name, or even initials. Our flags are mostly made of a cloth material but some are nylon. They usually are marked with the letter or country they represent. We have a huge selection of letter flags, number flags, and country flags! Take a look around! If you don’t see the one you want, call us as we have a few thousand we have not opened yet. In addition – we have a huge inventory of ceiling lights, dock lights, and other treasures!!Decorating With Nautical Flags For people who love the Great Lakes and oceans, decorative nautical and maritime signal flags are a great way to spruce up a room or even a whole home or vacation cottage. The signal flags found on fishing vessels, ocean freighters, and other seafaring vessels and ships can be used in many ways to evoke a seaside mood. Maritime and nautical signal flags can be used in various ways indoors: • Wall Art: Individual flags or a collection of small square flags in a large frame can be used to decorate the walls of dens and living rooms. • Rafters: Flags can be attached to open rafters to hang down from the ceiling. • Bar or “Man Cave”: A string of flags behind your bar makes a great decoration for a rec room or man cave with a nautical theme. You can decorate with nautical or naval flags in a way that is meaningful to you, such as by choosing particular country flags or flags that represent letters or numbers.
