Wellcome Collection International Code of Signals Enamel Pin Badge

Plinth

  • It's time to say it with flags.

    Well, not quite a full, wafty type flag, but rather an enamel pin badge version of a signal flag,used at sea to communicate between ships of all nationalities. And how those conversations must have flowed with these zingers represented in corresponding patterns and colours. Wafting red and white squares means 'Running into Danger', red and orange diagonals 'I am dragging my anchor', yellow and blue rectangles 'Communicate With Me', yellow rectangle with a blue line 'Keep clear of me' and red and yellow triangles 'Man Overboard.' Hm, you know these International Code of Symbols pin badges may just work perfectly on dry land too helping people to deal with modern life through polite flag waving and attractive accessorising.

    Brass plated enamel badges on manilla cards.
