Some of the individual flags, 1,2,4,5,8 and 0 had been used in Lord Howe's Code of 1790 as 5,8,9,6,2 and 0 respectively, but all ten flags, as a set, were probably introduced in 1827 when the Signal Books were revised.

The assigned values were changed in 1859 and the set of flags continued in use as the Royal Navy's numeral flags until 1948 when the assigned values were 1,6,5,4,7,3,8,2,9 and 0.
