Before the invention of the telegraph and radio signal, flags were one of the best and only means of long-distance communication. Semaphore flags, which are still used today, are a system of signal flags for conveying information at a distance by means of visual signals with hand-held flags. Information is encoded by the position of the flags. Signal flags were the first early step towards the invention of the Internet. Think about it.
Exam room signal flags have not been replaced by digital signs. Presently, exam room signal flags are widely used in hospitals and clinics. Exam room signal flags allow office staff to easily change the status of a room by alternating displayed flag colors. In the event of a power outage or massive emergency situation flags retain their ability to communicate where a digital or electronic signal cannot.
