A semaphore telegraph is a system of conveying information by means of visual signals, using towers with pivoting shutters (a.k.a. blades or paddles).

For example, the Prussian semaphore system was a telegraphic communications system used between Berlin and the Rhine Province from 1832 to 1849. It could transmit administrative and military messages by optical signal over a distance of nearly 550 kilometres (340 mi). The telegraph line comprised 62 stations each furnished with a signal mast with six cable-operated arms.

According to wikipedia, among the countries that have this feature are France, Sweden, United Kingdom, Prussia, Portugal, Spain, Danemark, Russia, United States, Canada, Egypt, India
