Racing Marshal Flags

At Midland Flags we can supply all 11 of the Racing Flags used within FIA Events. These flags are often used to convey messages to the drivers, indicating that there are hazards ahead or sometimes instructing drivers to perform certain actions on the track. Although there is no universal system for the messages behind each racing flag, all FIA Events use those below as standard. FIA championship flags being the most commonly used internationally outside of North America, as they include Formula 1 and WTCC.

The black and white checkered flag that we sell is probably the most widely known flag used in racing and is seen as a symbol in racing, with many people who are not racing fans or enthusiasts who know that this flag is tied to racing. The black and white checkered flag is usually used as a race is ending and is swung when the first person crosses the finishing line. The red and yellow striped flag is also well known for racing as it is the flag used when there is an obstruction, hazard or spill on a race track.

Using the list below, you can easily see which message each racing flag conveys. We sell each flag individually, and also have a racing flag pack for sale which includes one of each of the eleven flags.
