At Account Level 10, captains unlock the ability to fly signals on their ships that grant small bonuses to gameplay and rewards.

On achieving Account Level 14, captains can display non-national flags.

Signals

In order to equip signals, click the "Exterior" tab under the BATTLE! button in the top center of the screen, then select "SIGNALS" from the menu at left. This will display a list of available flags with quantities of each. Click on the desired signal, then press the "Mount" button. You can also choose to auto-resupply your signals, so that after each battle, another signal is automatically mounted on your ship. If you do not select this option, your ship will have no signals mounted when you return to port after your next battle. A maximum of eight (8) signals can be flown simultaneously on battleships, cruisers and destroyers; aircraft carriers are limited to four (4) signals in a match.

Signals can be earned as follows:

  • In-game achievements. Each achievement (except Devastating Strike) grants ten (10) of the corresponding signal, except for First Blood which only gives one (1) Zulu signal. Each achievement can only grant signals once per 24-hour period (same as daily win bonus and containers). For example: the first time each day that a captain earned the "Confederate" achievement, they would be awarded 10 "Zulu Hotel" flags. Additional "Confederate" achievements within the 24 hour window would not award additional flags.
  • Some signals may be purchased from the Premium Shop depending on server.
  • Signals can be acquired through the Signals & Camouflage and Try Your Luck containers, as well as supercontainers.
  • Campaigns, challenges, and combat missions may reward signals.
  • Playing one battle in a Public Test will grant 3 of every non-special signal. Additional Public Test missions may give special signals.


Special signals can only be obtained through containers or events (such as the World of Warships Birthday Event).

Signals may be sold for credits, though this is generally not worthwhile, especially for economic signals.

Flags

National Flags

Each ship in the tech tree of a single nation flies the national flag or naval ensign of that nation. Ships from tech trees that cover multiple nations — such as Commonwealth or Pan-Asia — can choose to fly either the "national" flag shown in the tech tree, or the ensign of the nation they actually represent.

Non-national Flags

Beginning at Account Level 14 captains may elect to hoist a non-national flag alongside the ship's national flag. These flags may be obtained from a variety of sources: from in-game events, to special flags available in certain ship bundles in the store, to contests or events on the regional forums.

Flags differ from Signals in key ways.

  • Signals are functional where flags are cosmetic. (The few flags that affect rewards are rare and generally unavailable.)
  • A player is limited to displaying one (1) non-national flag on each ship. (The ability to display two may be earned through some Collections.)
  • A flag is not consumed when displayed; it stays hoisted until the captain hauls it down.
  • The same flag may be displayed on more than one ship at a time.

The below are all non-national flags:
