This concerns water skiing - see following page (Arizona Boating Safety Handbook): www.boat-ed.com/az/handbook/ski.htm
"Vessels towing person(s) on water skis or a similar device must carry and use a bright red or orange skier-down flag that is at least 12 x 12 inches in size and mounted on a handle. The observer must be physically capable and mentally competent to act as an observer of a water-skier. The observer must continuously observe the skier(s) and display a skier-down flag whenever a skier is in the water after falling or while preparing to ski."
Illustrated is a square orange flag. Photo of such a flag in use at bottom of following page: www.boat-ed.com/id/course/p4-11_otherequipment.htm
Do not wave it, rather let a mechanism handle this: www.newportnet.com/northland/
