All our flags are manufactured from MoD-approved knitted and woven polyester and sewn to the highest standards.
Our Flags of the UK: Crafted from high-grade materials sourced here in the UK, all our flags are manufactured for outdoor use. Flat-felled interlocking stitch is used for all seams to combine the separate pieces that go into making the flag. The process is completed with four rows of stitching at the fly end for a robust finish.
Our UK and National flag stock sizes:
1yd to 4yd with a ratio of 2:1 or 3:2. Larger sizes are available – prices on application. Manufactured from 155gms MoD-approved woven polyester, the strongest flag fabric for outdoor flags. Nylon Bonded thread is used throughout the sewing process with 100% White header tape providing extra strength. All sewn flags come complete with rope and toggle unless otherwise requested. Other fixtures and fittings are available on application. Anti-fray (netting) prevents fraying if your flags are exposed or in a windy location. This can be added at an extra cost, also on request
All fabric, exposed to the elements will eventually fray so please follow the advice below to prolong the life span of your flag.
Flag care and maintenance
Woven / Spun Polyester: Typically 155gsm. Often referred to as MOD grade, this is the most durable material for making flags. Its strength-to-weight ratio is not surpassed by any other fabric.
It is very important to ensure that the flag can fly unobstructed without striking or coming into constant contact with any obstructions such as a wall, a tree or foliage or that the surface of the pole is rough.
It is also important to consider whether the flag will constantly be exposed to harsh or extreme weather conditions such as high winds, heavy rain or heavily polluted urban environments.
Flying an excessively large flag in bad weather will dramatically reduce life expectancy.
How long a flag will last is an impossible question to answer as it depends upon many factors.
It is not recommended to fly your flag continuously as this will reduce the life expectancy. Typically a flag flown continuously 24/7 may only last approximately 3 months.
Left out indefinitely, a flag will eventually succumb to the elements
Hand-washed or gently machine-washed at 30 degrees using a mild detergent. If unsure, consult your flagmaker.
Once a flag has become too dirty, it will be difficult to clean
- Never fly in inclement weather and strong winds
- Flags should always be thoroughly dry before folding and storage
- Flags should be taken down at night and in inclement weather
Your flag will endure much longer if it is cared for properly.
To get more life out of your flag you can always re-hem the outer fly edge when it eventually becomes worn. Simply cut away the frayed edge and hem with a suitable sewing machine.
