MINNESOTA STATE FLAG - FRINGED

At Flags USA, our Minnesota flags with fringe are:

  • 100% MADE IN THE USA—not just assembled in the USA, but manufactured here, too.
  • A dyed design that conforms to official state specifications.
  • Digitally printed on 200 denier nylon material.
  • Finished with a pole sleeve. (The pole sleeve—sometimes called a pole hem—can be used instead of grommets to hang a flag indoors; it slides onto any of our indoor flagpoles, and a small tab sewn inside the sleeve is used to attach the flag to the pole.)
  • Trimmed with gold fringe. (These flags are NOT recommended for outdoor use because the fringe is not colorfast nor is it stitched to the material in a manner that will withstand windy conditions.)
  • Suitable for INDOOR USE ONLY.
  • Typically used for ceremonies or for display in auditoriums, in courtrooms, on stages, or on podiums.
  • Ships in one to three business days.

The circle inside the white circle has a blue background

  1. Within the blue circle are three dates in gold:

  4. On the right, printed on a red ribbon is 1893,the year the original flag was adopted
