Why so genius? If you’ve ever had to give a secure password over the phone, you’re not asking that question.  They said it best with this:

They have a free vector download as well as a tempting wood block print.  And I suppose the Naval flags would also be useful if you ever need to give signals from an aircraft carrier. Plus it also includes the always handy morse code. If you don’t think that’s handy, see the beautiful movie: “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”.
