Summary: THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS A RACE
THE RACE IS ON
GET A SET OF REAL RACE FLAGS AND WAVE AS YOU PREACH
1. Green Flag - This means the race is either beginning or resuming. It lets the driver know the track is safe and clear. The driver can then move to the starting line.
2. Yellow Flag - This lets the driver know there is some kind of obstacle on the track and should proceed with caution. The flag is usually displayed if there has been an accident, bad weather conditions, or medical emergency. The drivers are supposed to slow down, making their way to the pit until the problem is resolved.
3. White Flag - This flag informs the driver that there is only one lap left in the race.
4. Red Flag - This means that the race has to stop. Both the drivers and the pit crews working on cars have to stop. The red flag is used during delays from bad weather, impassable tracks, or serious accidents. After the red flag is displayed, a yellow flag is shown so drivers can get back in pace.
5. Checkered Flag - This is displayed when the race is completed and
1. the winner announced.
6. Black Flag - If the black flag is waved at a driver, he must stop. It is usually because of something the driver did to break a rule, such as exceeding the speed limit on the pit road. It is also waved at a car that seems to be damaged, smoking, parts falling off.
7. Black Flag with a White X - This flag is waved at a driver that has been disqualified, usually for refusing to pit within five laps of seeing the black flag.
8. Blue Flag with Orange Diagonal Stripe - This flag tells drivers to move over and let the leaders of the race past them. It is an optional flag, but it is courtesy to let the leaders past.
