Maritime Identity Flags – Bridging San Pedro Community Art Workshop

Maritime Flags are hung on boats to alert and share information from ship to ship. These flags often designate where the ship is from, whether or not it’s friendly, and can even communicate its cargo. Our workshop poses the question, wouldn’t it be useful to communicate, from afar, a clear identity or state if you so choose?

They have shelves that are restocked with basic supplies such as water, medicine, route maps, and the sides display contact information of shelters and organizations…
