FLAGS AS WIND MEASURES. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Woodstock Recorder — 20 June 1902
FLAGS AS WIND MEASURES. A meteorologist, who has been esti mating wind velocity for many years by means of the motion of flags, says that the angle of a bunting flag, when flying at either full or half mast, will give the ap proximate wind in knots per hour. If the lower edge of a flag extends away from the pole at an angle of 45 degrees, with the upper corners of the flag furthest from the pole extended as a rule flat wind of from S to 12 knots an honr. If the upper corner of the flag sinks down occasionally to meet the lower corner, this indicates, with a 45 degrees angle, a wind oE from four to six knots tin hour. If the flag waves flat against the sky, with both outer corners well sustained, then the wind is from ten te fifteen knots an honr.
