Morse Code Flag for the Letter P - Papa . _ _ .

The Stars and Stripes for the Morse Code Flag reflect the DOT, DASH, DASH, DOT.  Incidentally the Morse Code P-Flag matches the colours for the P-Flag in International Maritime Flags, which is dark blue and white.  The Morse Code Papa flag is coded to the colour indigo (dark blue) since the ones digit value for P is a six, since it is the 16th letter in the alphabet.  The colours of the regular maritime flags are essentially arbitrary, but Morse Coded Flags have a scientific and logical progression to their design.
