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.

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.
