Quick Reference

A thin cloth of woven wool supplied in various colours from which flags of the International Code of Signals, and other coloured flags such as ensigns, were traditionally made. Originally, the name for bunting was bewpars. It was the most satisfactory material for flags as it was light enough to spread well even in a gentle wind, and was more resistant to fraying in a hard wind than many heavier materials.
