Beach Flags

Remember FLAGS when at the beach

F-ind the red and yellow flags and swim between them.
Look at the safety signs.
Ask a lifeguard for advice.
Get a friend to swim with you.
Stick your hand in the air and shout for help if in difficulty.


  • Do swim between the Red over Yellow flags
  • Don’t swim when the Red flag is flying
  • Listen to your LIFEGUARD and ask advice
  • Don’t take inflatables into the sea, you could be carried away by wind & tide
  • Don’t swim for at least an hour after meals
  • Don’t swim after drinking alcohol
  • Don’t swim alone or when cold
