Celebrate the home of the United States Naval Academy, Baltimore sports, and the Chesapeake Bay with the Maryland State Flag. Maryland is a state close to our hearts here at Flags.com; it where our company originated.
In 1990, the founder of Flags.com, a U.S. Marine, and his wife wanted to put a flagpole outside their Maryland home, but products were scarce. They opened a business and sold flags and flagpoles out of their house to the public because they knew they weren’t the only ones looking to do this. The Flags.com Maryland flags are great for indoor and outdoor use! Outdoor Maryland flags are made of lightweight nylon, great for everyday flying.
OUTDOOR MARYLAND FLAGS INCLUDE:
- Brass grommets
- Strong canvas header
- Made in America
- 100% Nylon (3' x 5' also available in 100% polyester)
Please note: Maryland’s flag code has a specific guideline not only on how to display the flag but on what the flagpole should look like. A gold cross botonee ornament should sit atop the flagpole when flown outside state government buildings and schools. Private individuals and commercial businesses do not have to obey this guideline, but it is recommended that they do.
INDOOR MARYLAND FLAGS INCLUDE:
- Black sleeve
- Gold fringe
- Made in America
- 100% Nylon
Please note: According to the Maryland flag code, the botonee cross should be on top of the flagpole when flying the state flag inside of government buildings and schools. Private individuals and commercial businesses do not have to obey this guideline, but it is recommended that they do. It’s recommended to not post indoor flags on the wall out of respect for the state flag.
Flagpoles are sold separately.The flag and all its colors look absolutely impressive on an oak indoor display pole which comes with a gold cord and tassel to your flag along with an indoor botonee cross to complete the royal look.
