The first version of the International Flags and Pennants came about in Britain in the 1830's for communication among ships and from ship to shore. Today, the International Code is still used by vessels, primarily when safety of a ship may be in question or there may be a need to communicate with a ships crew, particularly when there are language barriers. For this water colour series, I’m using each flag or pennant, with it's representation of the alphabet or numerical associated, to pay homage to some of the people and places of importance to me.
Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province of Canada. On March 31, 1949, it became the tenth and last province to join the Canadian Confederation as "Newfoundland." On December 6, 2001, the Constitution of Canada was amended to change the province's name to Newfoundland and Labrador.
