Lesson of navigation

In Rostock, in a park beside the museum, the ship Frieden class is a feature, which helps understand the cardinal system of buoyage.

These buoys get their names from cardinal points on the compass or, more precisely, from quadrants bounded by points NE, SE, SW and NW.

Marks like these are used to indicate the safe side on which to pass a danger.

They are pillars or spare buoys so the shape alone will not help to identify one, but the top mark and sequence of two colours make known its type.

The north mark is on the right side of the picture.
