Code
Nine
tack
one
one or 2nd subsitute
tack
zero
one. or 3rd subsitute.

You can use the subsitute pendants in the appropriate places.
Reference the International Code of Signals Pub 102
Or the U.S. Navy's Signalman 3rd & 2nd Class book

I could be wrong, but I was a boatswain mate in the Navy and we are never wrong.

Tack is a line the length of the signal flag's fly. And used as a separator.
