Flagwavers

Difficulty: ????
Web Search Badge
Part of the SummerGame2017 Game

Carrying physical messages, even with the help of pigeons or ponies, was not a terribly efficient way of communicating information. The message could get lost or waylaid, and in some cases just wouldn't make it at all, and who would know? Everybody knows the story of the messenger who ran to deliver the message that the Persians had been defeated at the Battle of Marathon and promptly fell over dead; but what if he'd fallen over dead before delivering the message? To avoid this, folks started thinking about telegraphy (long-distance transmission of messages). Just so we are clear, the types of telegraphy we are talking about here were not by any means the first developments of telegraphy: Asian, African, and North American cultures had been using smoke signals and drum signals for these purposes for centuries. But those are for another badge, today's badge is about guys with flags. Start by simply figuring out what kind of flagwaving we are talking about here. It's all over the badge image!
