26 different sqaure flags

The International Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot has its roots firmly in nutrient rich soil. However, for the past several years, the signs of the oceans have begun making their way into the event, making the event more appealing to seafarers and landlubbers alike.During 2008’s festival, a handout of nautical flags was available to guests wishing to decode the message that had sprung up around the lake in Future World. These floral patterns ended up spelling out the theme of 2008’s festival, Fun in the Sun.

Again, in 2009, the nautical flags made an appearance. This time, however, the flags left the flowers behind and used their more traditional form. Hung in banners around the Pirate Adventure Zone, the flags named characters, highlighted activities, and sent messages to eager buccaneers. Some of the messages included “Tie a knot” and “Ahoy Jolly Roger.” In order to interpret 2009’s flag messages, however, guests had to turn to a strategically placed sign rather than a paper handout.
