American Flag Categories Guide

Which American Flag Category Should I Choose?

Nylon

Nylon is the ideal material for most flag displays. The 200 denier material we use to make our nylon flags is tightly woven so it will fly in the slightest breeze, yet it is strong enough for most weather conditions. Nylon flags are lightweight, dry quickly, and have a rich, lustrous appearance.

Uses

  • Outdoors
  • Flown from an in-ground flagpole
  • Normal weather conditions (versus high-wind conditions)

Polyester

The two-ply material we use to make our polyester flags has an open weave. The open weave allows wind to flow through the material resulting in a flag that will wear exceptionally well and look great. Polyester flags are ideal for use in areas where windy conditions will cause a nylon flag to deteriorate very quickly.

Uses

  • Outdoors
  • Flown from an in-ground flagpole
  • High-wind conditions

Nylon

We recommend using a nylon flag. Polyester flags retain moisture and can become so heavy they can cause your pole or bracket to break.

Uses

  • Outdoors
  • Flown from a wall-mounted flagpole

Fringed

The Indoor American Fringed flags are most widely used for indoor display, offices, courtrooms, parades, and ceremonies.

Uses

  • Indoors
  • Displayed indoors
  • Ceremonial use
  • Carry in parades (on rain-free days)
