Vessel flag colors and routes.

If you're wondering where a given boat is headed on either Seven Seas Lagoon or Bay Lake just look for the color of the flag on the bow.
A green flag means it runs between the Kingdom and the Campground.
A red flag means it runs between the Kingdom and the Lodge.
A blue flag means it runs between the Lodge, Campground, and the Contemporary, there are two boats on this route and they run in opposite directions.
A gold(yellow) flag means it runs between the Grand, Polinesian, and the Kingdom.
I don't know if they still do it (it was always a rare occurrence) a combined red/green means it runs between the Kingdom, Lodge, and the Campground.

Then black also means in training, watch out. (For at least the water taxi's that run between Downtown Disney and it's resorts.) No I'm not kidding about that.

That was the last time we ever saw the "Breathless" afloat may it RIP.

I really think that "Black flag" had a skull and crossbones on it because after the ramming we could have boarded the other vessel and taken it over. laugh rolling laugh rolling laugh rolling
