Black Mourning Ribbon

Current Stock:

When an official proclamation is made for the American flag to be lowered to half staff there are several flag flying situations which make it virtually impossible to comply. For example it is impossible to lower the American flag to half staff in the following applications:

Telescoping Flagpoles

Flag Set on the Wall of Your House

Indoor Floor Stand Flag Set

The accepted solution is to tie a long black ribbon to the top of the flagpole allowing it to drape over the American flag. Our Black Mourning Ribbon is hemmed on all four sides and made with the same fade resistant invista nylon 66 used in our commercial quality Endura-Nylon American flags.

  • Ribbons are made in accordance to memorial standards
  • Ribbon measures 5' x 2" (Actual length is 10 feet, the fabric is folded in half with 2 grommets placed at the top fold for attaching to pole.)
  • Made in Wisconsin

    I like these since I cannot lower my flag half staff. I wish we didn't have these crises that call for using them, but I appreciate being able to honor those who have passed.

    It is a beautiful reminder to all about the woman who lived here and gave all for her family, wife, mother and friend. She is terribly missed and this ribbon commemorating her passing will always remain flying.

    Black Mourning Ribbons

    I did not know what the proper procedure was for flying my house mounted American Flag in times of National Mourning. Thanks to American Flag I now know the proper procedure and was able to purchase the Black Mourning Ribbons. Makes me feel proud to be able to do so properly. I also appreciate the email notification when it is in fact time to fly at half-mast.

    I was a first time customer and everything went smoothly. I ordered online and even called to verify something and was treated so well. I admire a company that has such good customer service and products. I will order and have ordered more from Flags Express. My product arrived on time. I highly recommend Flags Express.
