One pair of men's black socks from The Signs of the Sea collection designed by Nick Munro featuring the starboard flag on one sock and the port flag on the other.
The use of flags to send messages at sea has a long history. By 1855 this 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 Institution (RNLI) to create a range of items based on the shipping flag code.
Nick Munro is donating a minimum of £15,000 to the RNLI from the sale of these products.
