In Panama City Beach safety is a top priority, and the beach flags are in place to keep the public aware of Panama City Beach conditions at all times. Remember, double red means stay out of the water! So stay aware, and have fun on our gorgeous Florida beaches!
The beach warning flags fly in 5 different colors, and they mean the following:
Double Red- Water Closed to Public
Single Red—High Hazard, High Surf and/or Strong Currents
Yellow—Medium Hazard, Moderate Surf and/or Currents
Green—Low Hazard, Calm Conditions, Exercise Caution
Purple—Dangerous Marine Life
Absence of Beach Flags Does Not Assure Safe Waters.
On Double Red Flag days during the summer airplane banners will be flown alerting those on our Florida beaches to the current conditions.
Stay aware of the Panama City Beach conditions, and watch the flag colors at all times to determine whether it's safe to enter the water. The beach flags are there for your protection, so keep an eye on them!
