OSCAR - ICS Pin Badge
The International Code of Signals was originally used on flags by navy and commercial shipping vessels to send messages across both distance and language barriers; after all, when you want to make yourself understood, there’s no time to whip out a dual-language dictionary or beckon someone into earshot. Sometimes, an image is all you need.
