    ooOOooh I found some pretty morbid details about this one, assuming that the wikipedia article and this flag would be talking about the same thing.

    A flag that was on a ship when it was under quarantine.
    Although like I said, don't know if that was it.

    It's also more prosaically the International Code flag for the letter 'L' for Lima and can also be read as 'Stop Vessel Instantly'.
