noun - Red Card (or red flag) is a red-colored penalty card that indicates the immediate disqualification (DQ) of a swimmer due to unsportsmanlike conduct or a serious infraction of the rules during an open water race. If an open water swimmer has been called for one yellow card (or yellow flag) during the race and commits another infraction worthy of a yellow card, he is given a red card instead. That is, two yellow cards equal one red card.

The head referee gave a red card to the swimmer who pulled back his competitor around the turn buoy.
