Our Iowa state flag lets you show your admiration for the Hawkeye State. This single/reversed flag comes finished for outdoor flying and is available in all customary sizes.

All Iowa flags are American-made using nylon, a durable and lightweight fabric. Nylon’s lightness means that it can fly even in gentle breezes and dries quickly to help prevent mildew growth. The design is digitally printed, making it UV- and fade-resistant. 

Each flag of Iowa is outfitted with a sturdy canvas header and brass grommets for easy flying from an outdoor flagpole, such as our bestselling 6’ tangle-free house-mounted pole. We carry a wide range of flag sizes, including the standard 3’ x 5’. To determine which size best suits your pole or vice versa, please refer to our table of recommended pairings.

*Flags 8' x 12' and larger use a heavy-duty rope and galvanized thimbles for the added strength needed for larger flags. Flags smaller than that size are equipped with a canvas header and grommets.

If you are planning on setting a formal display honoring Iowa in a courtroom, lodge, or government building, you may want to consider using our indoor Iowa flag, which comes with 3 sides of gold fringe and a pole sleeve.


Iowa was almost 75 years old before the state decided to adopt a banner in 1921. The Daughters of the American Revolution designed the flag after the Iowa National Guardsmen who were stationed along the Mexican border in WWI asked for an emblem of Iowa to represent their unit.

The design consists of three vertical stripes. The vertical stripe of blue represents justice, loyalty, and truth. The white stripe stands for purity, and the red stripe is for courage. The eagle on the center of the flag is the same eagle on Iowa’s state seal. This eagle carries a streamer that contains the state motto: “Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain.”
