One of the secrets of a lifeguard, among other things, is the flags, which help to inform beach swimmers of the possibility of danger or not.
The presence of the lifeguard is represented by one orange flag, which reads "Lifeguard" and must be elevated throughout its presence.
At the end of each shift, the orange flag is replaced with a red one that reads «No Lifeguard».
In addition to the above cases, in addition there are green, yellow and red flags which do not carry a specific word or phrase and are known as «Weather Flags».
Wherever there is a green flag, there is no danger and swimming is allowed
The yellow color implies potential risk, while swimming is the responsibility of the swimmers themselves.
The red flag means that there is danger and swimming is not allowed.
The majority of people do not know exactly the above meanings and ignorance can lead to accidents.
So now… you know.
