Quick Cape Town Fact: Signal Hill stands proudly overlooking the city of Cape Town but why is it called Signal Hill? Well its elevated position was perfect for a lookout to be posted and to watch for ships approaching the harbour. Long ago it was the duty of this permanently stationed signalman to let the castle know when he could see a ship approaching. He did this by means of a flag system and by firing a cannon shot. Once the ship was close enough and if the signal man had identified it as hostile then he raised a red flag which raised the alarm for men to go to the harbour to defend against an attack.
