You have most likely seen markings on the pavement, a sidewalk, or even a piece of dirt — usually in an area where construction is about to take place. They may look like colored lines, but you may also see bright symbols or colored flags running along a property. They’re used to mark utility lines that often run underground.

How can marking ribbon be used in surveying?

Flagging tape can be used by surveyors to mark land boundaries, which may be needed for a specific purpose. And because these markers may need to be there for months or even years while a project is still in development, the color needs to stay bright for a long period of time. This is one of the primary features of surveyor’s tape. The color won’t fade over time, regardless of the sun, wind, rain, or any other weather condition.

What is blue flagging ribbon used for?

Blue flagging tape is often used in forestry to indicate the presence of potable water. And because it needs to be visible, it’s often in a bright, fluorescent color.
