Nylon: The nylon material is lightweight and durable, making this our most popular flag.
Polyester: The polyester material looks cotton-like and is a heavier weight than the nylon. It is recommended for high wind areas because it can withstand more abuse.
Cotton: The cotton flag is used mostly for indoor display. It is used for draping over a casket and is commonly used for ceremonies where the flag is not displayed outside for a long period of time.
G-SPEC Flag: The G-SPEC flag is made in accordance with U.S. government specifications. The sizes are made to the official government hoist fly ratio of 1:1.9. The star fields are larger and they are mostly purchased for display at military bases.
Printed vs Fully Sewn Flag: A printed flag is an image that is printed on to the nylon material. A sewn flag is stronger because it is made by joining the individual pieces of colored fabric with thread.
Chain vs Lock Stitch: A chain stitched flag will completely unravel if one thread is torn, but that won’t happen with a lock stitched flag.
All our American flags are sewn and lock stitched in the USA. The materials that used are domestic in origin and all processes of their assembly were completed in USA facilities with USA labor.
