What do you think?

Represents the dive flag
Represents the 3 primary colours in photography
Represents the 3 main colours lost underwater in order of depth

Surely its a no brainer

Represents the kind of dive flag only used in the US of A perhaps?....The rest of the world tends to refer to the International Code of Signals for diving operations and that is an Alpha flag, indicating 'I have a diver down'.

Could be a boy scout merit badge or maybe a new certification patch coming from PADI to get more dough.

Add some 35mm film perforations around the borders of whatever dive flag you prefer, then maybe you've got something.

Why does anyone need a flag for?
For initial representation without the use of words, I don't personally, it just came to me!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag


It doesn't have to be used just as a flag, it could be used as an international symbol for our hobby, so if it is seen in a shop window for example, one would know if they have found the right shop or not! Or even at a dive show perhaps

The international symbol for our hobby should be large stacks of money being flushed down a saltwater marine head. :lol:

Current rig: Sony SLT-alpha55 in Ikelite housing, Sigma 105mm f2.8 DC Macro w/ Ike 5505.58 flat port or Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM behind UWCamStuff custom 5" mini-dome. Dual INON z240 Type IVs triggered with DS51 for TTL mimicry, or DS51 alone with home-made ringflash assy for macro.

 

Topside, unhoused: Sony SLT-alpha99, Sigma 150-500mm + 1.4TC (Saving for Sony 70-400 G2), Sigma 15mm diagonal fish, Sony 24-70mm f2.8 CZ, Tamron 180mm f2.8 Macro...all the gear and nary a clue...

It's the representation that everyone recognizes; of course almost no one is shooting film anymore, but then, my cell phone uses a picture of an old handset to represent making a call. Not because anyone actually uses that kind of handset anymore, just because it's the most recognizable symbol. And ironically, pixels are tough to represent graphically :lol:

Although the flushing image is awfully tempting...
