Speaking Across the Waves

Flagstaff Hill

In 1854 an international flag signalling code was devised so ships could “speak” to one another and to those on the shore. The Flagstaff at Flagstaff Hill is an original example of how this was done. Use these flags to spell out your name and hang it as a decoration in your room.


School holiday activities are included in Flagstaff Hill ticketing. 

This event is part of the program of events at
