From the publisher:

Flying Colors provides quick-playing system allowing the recreation of battles including dozens of ships on a side. Focusing on the behavior of each fleet as a whole, rather than dealing with the minutia of shipboard operations accomplishes this. The proper retention of command and control of the fleet once engaged was paramount, as was the issuing of proper orders prior to the battle.

The command system in Flying Colors simulates these factors in a simple, elegant manner by depending upon leaders to keep their commands in order. This system allows the abandoning of the pre-plotted, simultaneous movement systems used in other Age of Sail games. This change allows two players to manage many, many more ships in a fleet in a much shorter period of time. Players can now play large fleet actions, including dozens of ships on a side, in only a few hours.
