Lifeguard Flags by onewing

Lifeguard Flags

I am late posting today because we have been to the recently opened koala sanctuary at One Mile with friends.

It has been a hot smoky day because there is a bushfire burning about 7 km from here.

I will post photos taken at the sanctuary in a couple of days but for now here are more photos taken at Fingal Bay.

The flag at the top is to tell surfers to surf to the left of the black and white flag and the bottom flag is one of two red and yellow flags to indicate to swimmers that they can swim safely between the flags. The surfboard is to let people know that lifeguards are on duty.

The beach was quite busy but I wanted to take photos of the flags with no people in the photo.
Neat! Thanks for explaining.

Flags have been used as signals for a long time- I think in this case it's better than a printed sign. Nice duo!

@edorreandresen @johnfalconer @beryl @pcoulson @sdutoit @sangwann @k9photo @dutchothotmailcom @kvphoto @ingrid01 @thistle01 @casablanca @ludwigsdiana @mittens @gijsje @pattyblue @bruni @samae @carolmw @happypat @gosia @wakelys @seattlite @pdulis @busylady @olivetreeann @pyrrhula Thanks, luckily most people stay within the flagged areas but you do get the occasional person who doesn't stick to the rules and ends up in trouble.

The bushfire is under control today I believe, mainly thanks to a storm last night and plenty of rain. Very hot and sticky today though. I will see what state the fire is in later today because we are out for lunch in Fingal Bay and we will pass the fire area on our way.

Beautiful beach! Awesome flag communication!

That’s fascinating. How nice that they have those signals. I don’t think our beaches do. I have never seen them.
