SHOULD I CHOOSE NYLON OR POLYESTER MATERIAL FOR MY OUTDOOR FLAG?
NYLON - The ideal material for most flag displays. The 200 denier nylon material we use to make our 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.
POLYESTER - A good choice for areas with frequent windy conditions. The two-ply polyester material we use to make our 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.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish your flag display to have a consistent look, we recommend using the same material for all flags displayed together. Not all flags are available in polyester. If one or more of the flags you need is not available, it may be necessary to use nylon flags to achieve a consistent look.
CONNECTICUT FLAG FACTS
On January 9, 1788, Connecticut became the fifth colony to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Although Connecticut displayed a flag that was generally accepted as its official state flag, the specifications were not made official until they were adopted into law by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1897. Getting the specifications written into law was prompted by the Anna Warner Bailey Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, who persuaded Governor Coffin in 1895 to propose to the Connecticut General Assembly that an official flag be adopted.
One of the most prominent features in the shield, the three grape vines, are believed to originate from a seal Colonel George Fenwick brought from England is 1639. Many believe that the grapevines represent the three colonies, New Haven, Saybrook and Connecticut (Hartford) that merged as Connecticut by 1665.
The banner that reads Qui Transtulit Sustinet (Latin: “He who transplanted continues to sustain”) was also taken from Fenwick’s seal.
