In 1857 the International Code of Signals was officially published by the British Board of Trade. The purpose of the code was to establish a set of rules for maritime communication that everyone would understand. Originally the code included 18 signal flags that could be combined to signal about 17,000 various messages. Today, this flag system of communication is used to dress ships to more festive occasions and ceremonies.
