A post from Laguna, HQ for Tricot Naturelle and rare finds. Today we are doing some research on signal flags for ships. Pictured here is a beautiful vintage canvas roll filled with flags, purchased for Tricot Naturelle. There are 30 flags in all, made of cotton, each filling a letter spot in the canvas roll. Each flag then corresponds to a certain communication to other vessels while sailing. We are now in the process of making sure the flags are in their proper slot for the day our boat sets sail. We are also in the process of looking for the boat.
