Signaling system is a system that uses a single or multiple flags to organize troops movements. Every state has its unique color system that they use for sending messages to their troops. This is good way to safely communicate with soldiers of different units at the same time over long distances. This is as long they can see the flags. Usually these flags are posted at a high location in order to make it possible to see the flags at long range.
