Flag Terminology

Printed vs Fully Sewn Flag ConstructionA printed flag is an image that is printed on to the nylon material. A sewn flag is made by joining the individual pieces of the 13 stripes with thread.

Chain vs Lock Stitch Construction: A chain stitched flag works like any chain, if you break one link, the entire chain breaks.  That won’t happen with a lock stitched flag.

Flag SizeTo ensure you choose the right USA flag size, here is a chart to determine the right flag for your pole

NylonThe nylon material is lightweight and durable, making this our most popular flag. – MOST POPULAR

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. – BEST FOR HIGH WINDS

The cotton flag is commonly used for ceremonies where the flag is not displayed outside for a long period of time. The 5 x 9½ size American flag is used to drape over a casket. – VINTAGE STYLE

G-SPEC Flag: The G-SPEC flag is for use by the U.S. federal government. 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.
