Four Flags

The language of nautical flags, semaphore, may look pretty but is a good way of saying something silently. Few people can 'read' semaphore, so most won't realise what is really being said. Unlike a spoken word, which is temporary, a written word is constantly being said, and a word coded into flags, unrecognisable even as a word, has a more ominous power. I used this opportunity to finally say what I felt.
