Beach Warning Flags
Stay safe. Know the beach flags.
When swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, safety should be your top priority. In Panama City Beach color-coded beach flags are in place to keep the public aware of sea conditions at all times. Remember, double red means stay out of the water - you could be arrested for ignoring this warning! So stay aware, and have fun on our gorgeous Florida beaches!
 
Double Red- Danger! Water Closed to Public
Single Red-High Hazard, High Surf and/or Strong Currents 
Yellow-Medium Hazard, Moderate Surf and/or Currents
Green-Low Hazard, Calm Conditions, Exercise Caution
Purple-Dangerous Marine Life (Usually Jellyfish)

*Absence of Beach Flags Does Not Assure Safe Waters.
