Abstract : The current U.S. Navy cotton signal flags have dull shades and limited visibility. A study was established to develop improved colors for more durable fabrics. This investigation of a variety of colors and dyestuffs indicated that selected basic dyes on acrylic fabrics improved on the visibility of the present cotton bunting and exhibited adequate trueness of col r and good colorfastness.
