Recognized as the most durable of all flag fabrics, our 2-Ply Polyester American flags are your best choice for extreme winds and intense sun. If you are not in a high wind area, we recommend our Endura Nylon American Flag, which is just as fade resistant as our 2-Ply Polyester, but made from 200 denier nylon which flies better in average to high wind conditions.
Double the Life of Your American Flags
If you purchase high quality American flags, 6' x 10' or larger, consider our flag repair service. Eventually all flags wear out but if you return your American flag to us for repairs we may be able to double the life of it. The secret is to send it in at the first signs of wear. More information can be found here on our American Flag Repair Services.
Flying Flags on Vehicles
We highly advise against flying any flag on a vehicle except in slow-moving parades. If you're driving 45 mph into a 15 mph wind the combined effect is 60 mph. On the expressway the combined effect can easily exceed 75 mph, category one hurricane winds! At that speed grommets can fail and flags fly off onto another drivers windshield. Flag life is dependent on many factors when being used on a vehicle. Factors include vehicle turbulence, flag is flown in slipstream or wind shadow and combined vehicle speed and wind speed/heading.
I live in a very windy area and my last flag started to shred along the bottom edge in just over a month.
Installed this flag on June 3, 2022 . When I took the flag out of the package, I could tell the outstanding quality right away. Oh that made me smile! This flag was a gift to my sweetheart and he was soooooo excited to receive it since all the other flags he purchased never lasted long under the same weather conditions. He was like a kid with a new toy...and had to install it right away. She is doing great so far in the strong winds she deals with on a daily basis. :)
Flag held up very well hanging from the counter deck of a tower crane in Dallas.
Great flag. Very heavy duty. I am sure it will last a long time.
Just as what they said it was! Thanks for great service!!!!!!!
Whenever this new flag I just bought has outlived it’s use I’ll buy another one from you.
Will order again
I bought one of these a year ago and was doing great until the flag was placed at half staff a little too low. It was hitting the building and caught a metal corner and tore on the one corner. I believe this flag would have lasted 2 years before needing a repair. I ordered two new ones to have a proper rotation. We light breeze most of the time(<5knots) frequently (52 times a year 12knots) and about 10 times a year 25 with gust above 50. These do fade but very even fade that you only see when you are switching to a new flag. With repairs I believe I won’t replace these flags for rips but due to the fade years from now. Previous flag even with repairs don’t last us a year. These flags service is 24/7/365 over our fire station.
ABSOLUTELY Beautiful. LOVE IT
