Pretty sure any non-emergency use of distress flares is illegal. I believe that yacht clubs and other groups can get permission to fire demonstration flares, but you'd be in big trouble if you just went and did it yourself and then got caught. Not to mention the waste of resources should any agency actually respond to the non-emergency.
