A cardinal mark is a sea mark (a buoy) used in maritime pilotage to indicate the position of a hazard and the direction of safe water. The safe direction is indicated by the pattern of triangles at the top of the buoy. In this case, the two triangles are pointing down which indicates that ships should pass to the south (for further information, see diagram at LinkExternal link ).
