Nautical Alphabet

The Flag Design Hotel is a hotel that has a strong relationship with the sea and the nautical environment. Inspired by the nautical alphabet, the hotel adopted flags in its design, as well as other elements that refer to the maritime world.

The nautical alphabet also influenced the hotel's name, which refers to the flags used in communication between ships. Furthermore, the Flag Design Hotel offers a unique atmosphere, which allows guests to feel immersed in maritime culture and tradition.
The nautical alphabet, also known as the International Code of Signals, is a communication system developed for use in maritime navigation. It consists of a set of flags and codes that can be used to transmit messages between ships or between a ship and the coast.

Each letter of the alphabet is assigned a unique code, represented by a flag or series of flags. For example, the letter "A" is represented by the flag that shows a white stripe on a blue background. The code for "A" can be transmitted by raising this flag on the ship's mast.

The nautical alphabet was developed in the 19th century as a way to standardize communication at sea. Before its creation, there was no universal system for ships to communicate with each other, which could lead to confusion and misunderstandings.

Today, the nautical alphabet is still used by ships around the world, especially in situations where verbal communication may be difficult or impossible, such as during storms or in noisy environments. It is also used in sea competitions and some recreational sailing activities.
