The use of flags to send messages has a long history. By 1855 it had evolved into the International Code of Signals, an elegant system of flag signs created for the use of all nations that is still occasionally employed today.
Designer Nick Munro has teamed up with the Royal National Lifeboat institute (RNLI) to create a range of items based on the International Code of Signals.
Nick Munro will donate a minimum of £15,000 from the sale of The Signs of the Sea products in support of the RNLI.
