Nearly every diver has either had personal experience or heard stories about a near miss with a boat who’s skipper did not understand the meaning of either the Alpha or the red/white dive flag which was being flown. Major associations accept the dive flags in existence today are unlikely to be understood by anyone except divers. There is no legal requirement to do so.
Based on the ancient universal language of symbols
we have developed a flag that warns of danger.
If it was known that Dive Flag symbolised a scuba diver or snorkeler in the vicinity, most water traffic would avoid them.
It is our belief that Diveflag will save both injuries and lives and we would like to see our flag flown alongside any others that are required by law.
This is the Alpha flag required by law to be flown by dive vessels. This means I have a diver down; keep well clear at low speed.
The red and white sports diver flag more commonly used across Europe and USA is also not formally recognised outside of the USA and is subject to local laws when flown in America.
Our flag is designed to be understood by everyone; adults, children, divers, casual
boat and water-
In the interest of diver safety we would like to see this flag adopted Worldwide as an industry standard and priced to be affordable by every diver.
So why do I need to fly your Diveflag as well?
The main safety issue about both of these flags above is that few people apart from divers actually understand what they mean, and certainly not the casual water user, especially when there is no legal requirement for them to do so.
