Flag for Port or the Left Side of the Ship
The Port flag is red and white. It can be flown as a decal or flag on the port side of a ship, plane, car, or bus.
The anchor symbolizes that ships can 'park' in this area, as is often the case with most ports.
Additionally red is associated with the port side of a ships navigation light.
If you happen to speak English you can use the synchronized association of 4 letters for left-to-port when thinking about the left side of the ship, when facing forward.
Also port wine has a red colour. Finally like a horizontal traffic light, the red light is always on the left, port side of the traffic signal.
