Flag Care Suggestions
Caring for your flag:
Outdoor flags may be cleaned in a mild detergent, then hang dry. If fray edges are noted, you may cut the fray from the flag and rehem the flag to extend the life of the flag. Removing flag during storms with rain and extremely high winds will help the life of the flag. Flags are meant to fly in the wind, but strong winds and rain can damage flags.
When using your indoor flags for outdoor events remember: Try to avoid Direct sunlight on indoor flags for significant amount of time as fading may occur.
If your indoor flag becomes soiled, they should be dry cleaned. If your indoor flag becomes wet, you should hang flag up until completely dry and always be sure flag is completely dry prior to storage.
Flag Repair, With the ever increasing price of flags, making them last as long as possible is even more important. As soon as you see the upper edge of the fly end starting to fray, that is the time to take it down and get it repaired. If you let it rip too far back, too much will have to be cut off and it won’t look right.
When you purchase a Flag, 5’x8’ or larger, you also have the option to have the fly end reinforced. This is approximately the same price as a repair, but with a reinforced fly end, more than likely you will not need repair.
Be sure to read our section on Flag Care to prolong the life of your flag
Repair time can take time, so we advise you to have a spare flag. That way you can rotate them and fly one while the other is being repaired!
