(a) Anchorage or mooring area buoy. An anchorage or mooring area buoy shall designate areas where boats may be anchored or moored. An anchorage or mooring area buoy shall be white, except that yellow buoys shall be used to mark quarantine anchorage areas. White buoys with a clearly visible horizontal blue band around the circumference of the buoy centered midway between the top of the buoy and the waterline shall be used to mark individual vessel moorings.
(b) Diver's flag. A diver shall mark his position with a diver's flag. The diver's flag shall be two sided and shall be of stiff material or fitted with stiffener(s) or batten(s) so that it remains unfurled. It shall consist of a red background not less than thirteen inches in height by fifteen inches in width with a white diagonal stripe not less than three inches in width running downward from the top corner of the flag where attached to the staff to the opposite lower corner. On flags so used to indicate the presence of a submerged diver between sunset and sunrise, the white diagonal stripe shall be of reflectorized material. The diver's flag shall be made of nylon, plastic, or other waterproof material and shall be supported by a stiff mast not less than twenty inches in length. Each mast shall be fixed to the boat from which divers are operating or to a float of sufficient size and stability to support the masted flag in a vertical upright position.
(c) Not more than four persons shall use the same diver's flag simultaneously, except when engaged in underwater swimming or diving from an anchored vessel displaying such flag in which case the number of persons using the same flag shall be limited to the legal capacity of such vessel.
