What the heck is it Chapter I, Part 3, Section 3.6 OF? Code of Federal Regulation? The rules for
the Podunk Iowa National Sheep Memorial?
California state law is much less restrictive and
California Code of Regulations
Division 4. Department of Boating and Waterways
Chapter 1. Department of Boating and Waterways
Article 6.Waterway Marking System
§7008. The Divers Flag.
(a) A red flag with a white diagonal running from the upper left hand corner to the lower right hand corner (from masthead to lower outside corner) and known as the “Divers Flag” shall when displayed on the water, indicate the presence of a person engaged in diving in the water in the immediate area.
(b) Recognition of this flag by regulation will not be construed as conferring any rights or privileges on its users, and its presence in a water area will not be construed in itself as restricting the use of the water area so marked.
(c) Operators of vessels will, however, exercise precaution commensurate with conditions indicated.
(d) This flag may be displayed only when diving is in progress, and its display in a water area when no diving is in progress is that area will constitute a violation of the regulation and of section 659 of the Harbors and Navigation Code.
(e) Nothing in this section will require the carriage of a divers flag for any purpose.
