Good point, the red flag and red flashing light are internationally recognized as meaning "transferring hazardous cargo". But I've never seen reference to them in the COLREGs or inland navigation rules. Unless someone can point me to what I'm missing, I suspect they must be in some other regulation, because tankers all use them when loading and unloading.
