I have blue, green, red, yellow and white flags in my yard. What are they for?

A utility, the Village, a neighbor or someone at your property called Diggers Hotline which is a system to identify these lines; it is frequently utilized for constructing, repair, planning and installing underground utilities. These lines could be power cables, phone or cable TV lines, storm, gas, water or sewer lines. Most of the flags have identifiable owner references and phone contact numbers.
