Signal flags on beaches

Red over yellow flags are used on partolled beaches in New Zealand and other countries such as Australia and Hong Kong. In New Zealand, the usual situation is that when lifeguards are in attendance the beachside building they use as their office/HQ flies the flag of that particular club (usually a logo, and often sponsored). Two red and yellow flags will be placed on temporary poles hammered into the sand of the beach at either end of the patrolled area, and the public are advised to "Swim between the flags".
