Signal Flags Explained

Signal flags in World of Warships are not only cosmetic features, but also something you can use to tweak the performance of your ship. Each signal flag can be awarded once per day for different in-game accomplishments and used on any ship, once your account hits a certain level. You do not have to limit yourself to one signal flag. Aircraft carriers have four slots, while other vessels can be fitted with up to eight signal flags at the same time.

Signal flags are unlocked in the game only after reaching a certain Account Level. You can track your progress in the game by going to the Profile interface and viewing the Service Record tab.
