Beach Warning Flags

To ensure the safety of our beach patrons, the City of Deerfield Beach utilizes the International Life Saving (ILS) Federation’s flag system, created to promote an international standard for all beach-goers to understand.

Due to the number of drownings in the state of Florida, a standardized flag system was already in place, but as of June 2004, the international system has replaced the previous one.
