You can also enter your text and translate it to the way that you would show the Semaphore flags. After entering your text, you can scroll down and see your text to practice your flags or learn how to spell words with the flags. This area of the app is not 100% complete but I decided to add it for now to show what will be coming in the next release of the app. I will also add a International Flags and Pennants translator in a future release.
