For anyone that has ever dove in a crowd you know that a nuisance is that all dive flags look alike, almost all of them are the exact same size, made out of vinyl and for the most part you can't see the float.
Was wondering what people thought about slapping a bumper sticker on my dive flag, same one that is on my dive bag and vehicle.
First it would help in the back of the gear trailer I would not be sorting through the 8 flags that are back there with everyone else on the trip looking for the faded sharpie name on the float.
The second reason would be if someone wanted to locate me specifically, or distinguish my flag from the 10 other flags around me they could.
Was just wondering people's thoughts on this, obviously it would change the flag slightly ascetically, that said it would still clearly be a dive flag.
Sooner or later some overzealous marine patrol officer will ticket you for an obstructed dive flag, flag that doesn't meet regulations or some such nonsense
Figured there was some reason for it, I know I am not the only one that is frustrated when they look out and see 4 sets of dive flags and have no idea which is attached to the person they are looking for.
