flags at espn

On the Bristol ESPN campus, there’s a flagpole outside the cafe that normally flies a red ESPN flag.   On certain occasions, the pole flies a special flag; for instance, when Disney President Bob Iger recently visited, a Disney flag flew.   Well, for an unknown reason today, four alphabet signal flags were flying.   I assumed they spelled out ESPN, but I had to verify.   Enter myPhone and the app Wikipanion, a mobile-formatted version of The Wiki.   From the international maritime signal flags page, I confirmed the flags spelled ESPN.   Not sure why, though.   I don’t think Captain Jack Sparrow was sailing with the Black Pearl through Bristol today.
