What do the beach warning flags mean?

Double red flags means water is closed to the public. Red flag is high hazard meaning high surf and/or strong currents. Yellow flag is medium hazard meaning moderate surf and/or currents. Green flag is low hazard meaning calm conditions, exercise caution. Purple flag means dangerous marine life spotted. **Absence of flags does not assure safe waters.

Why does Florida need a uniform warning flag system?

Warning flags are posted by many coastal communities, but the flags used to identify different tide and surf conditions vary from place to place. Many residents and visitors travel to different parts of the state to enjoy our wonderful public beaches. Differences in flag colors, size and symbols can confuse beach goers, thereby decreasing the effectiveness of efforts to improve public safety.
