One form of communication that is used is ‘Flag semaphore’ which is a way of sending a message or information from a distance using visual signals such as hand-held flags, rods, paddles and so on.

Messages are sent by holding the arms or two flags or poles in certain positions according to an alphabetic code. This is a form of communication to convey a message to those at a distance. The navy and airports are some of the places where this is used.
