Beach Flag Warning System:

Double Red Flag: Water is closed to public (dangerous water conditions). If caught in the water during double red flags you can be ticketed, fined or even arrested.
Red Flag: High Hazard (high surf and/or strong currents).  When red flags are present, adults are only supposed to go into their waist and small children are not supposed to enter the water. If you go into the water under red flags, be sure to have a floatation device with you.
Yellow Flag: Medium Hazard (moderate surf and/or currents)
Green Flag: Low Hazard (calm conditions, exercise caution)
Purple Flag: Marine Pests Present (jellyfish, stingrays, dangerous fish)
