A diver down flag, or scuba flag, is a flag used on the water to indicate that there is a diver below. Two styles of flag are in use. Internationally, the code flag alfa/alpha, which is white and blue, is used to signal that the vessel has a diver down and other vessels should keep well clear at slow speed. In North America it is conventionally red with a white stripe from the upper left corner to the lower right corner.

A flag, hoist half white, fly half blue, the fly edge has a triangular swallowtail cut-out along its full length        A red flag with white diagonal band
There are many other types of Safety & Signaling – lights, tubes and floats.
