Which Flag is Right for Me?

American Made Flags - The Easy Choice

At Flags.com, our flags are 100% manufactured in the USA to be of the highest possible quality. Buying an American-made flag not only helps support the US economy but also ensures that you receive an exceptional product from the finest materials. Low-cost foreign-made options are usually constructed of materials that fall apart quickly and need more frequent replacements. Choosing an American-made flag is the easy choice.

Nylon Flags ā€“ Most Popular

Nylon flags are lightweight and durable, making them great for everyday flying. We highly recommend nylon for all residential and commercial fair-weather zones. Built with mother nature in mind, our nylon flags are both quick-drying and UV-resistant. These flags can be flown on any size flagpole, including the house-mounted poles. For regal flagpoles 25' or taller, make sure to get the right size for your pole!

DECORATIVE FLAGS

The nylon on our decorative flags is a little different. These flags are made of glossy, plastic-like nylon. Nylon decorative flags are most often appliqued.

Polyester Flags ā€“ Best for High Winds

Polyester flags are heavy-duty flags built for mariners, sea breezes and TOUGH weather. These two-ply flags can withstand high winds and daily use and abuse. Keep in mind that it's "heavy" duty, so it's too heavy for a house-mounted flagpole.

SPORTS FLAGS

The polyester sports flag is more lightweight and transparent than the polyester used for our other flags.

DECORATIVE FLAGS

Like sports flags, decorative flags are made with lightweight polyester. However, decorative flags are not as transparent as sports flags. These flags can have a soft, burlap, or even suede-like finish.

All outdoor flags are made with the highest quality materials and enhanced to withstand sun, dirt and moisture.

Cotton Flags ā€“ Vintage Style

The American flag, the Betsy Ross flag, and select pleated fans are the only flags available in our vintage cotton material.

Cotton flags are commonly used for ceremonies where the flag is not displayed outside for an extended period. The 5' x 9.5' cotton American flag is used for draping over a casket.
