We share a reminder of the meaning of the flags, for example: the red flag means that swimming is prohibited. The yellow flag refers to a dangerous beach, but entry is allowed with extreme caution. The black flag means that the beach is closed. The white flag indicates the presence of jellyfish, and the green flag means that conditions for swimming, diving, or snorkeling are good.
