Flag Care - Looking After Your Flag!

It is important to understand that flags and banners – especially flags flying outside – can become dirty and faded over time. Ultraviolet (UV) rays and regular battering by winds can break down fibers in the material – this is especially critical on the sewn edges. When you see fraying beginning to occur on an edge, flag first-aid is in order. A repair will help keep your flag in service longer.By learning to properly care for your flag, you will extend its life and save money. Moreover, your flag or banner will maintain that crisp, new appearance far longer.

Here is how to get the best use from your flag or banner

To get the most out of your flag, follow these guidelines. should you have questions.

  1. Always bring your flag or banner inside when strong winds are anticipated.

  2. Flags flown on standard poles will typically last much longer than flags flown high above ground.

  3. The lifespan of a flag is directly related to flying time. A flag that flown day and night will not last as long as a flag that flown from sunrise to sundown.

  4. Use flag clips to keep the flag from wrapping around the pole. Likewise, don’t place the flag where it will beat against any other object.

  5. Wash your flags and banners as needed to keep them fresh. Dry completely before folding.

Proper care and treatment can quadruple the life expectancy of your flags and banners. Consider getting multiple flags for each application. That will allow you to rotate which is flown and always have a clean flag ready to go when that special appearance is needed.
