Rope and Clips
The flag clips are most commonly used. Made from high quality UV resistant nylon, they offer excellent durability and low halyard noise when hoisted. Simply attached one to each flag loop and two on the flagpoles rope via a basic hitch knot, connect togeter and hoist your flag. The tension between the flag and rope should be slightly loose, allowing flags to fly.

Brass Grommets (also known as eyelets)
These are round and solid brass that are place usually on the header of the flag, one at the top and one at the bottom. For flags with grommets, you can use c-clips, zap straps or snaphooks to attach the flag a flagrope. Flags and banners with grommets can also be hung vertically on the wall.

Rope loops
Rope loops are used for simple fast flag hoisting. Simply attach both flag loops to your existing clips, and host your flag. The tension betwwn the flag and flag clips should be slightly llose allowing flags to fly easily.

Sleeve hole
There are also flags with sleeve option. You can slide a pole in and secure your flag using a rope at the bottom.

Flag Care and Expected Life of a Flag

Flags are subjected to the elements. Ultra violet rays and high winds cause the breakdown of fibres in flags, particularly the breakdown of the sewn edges at the extremities.

Prevailing conditions will largely determine the length of the life of your flag. A flag that weathers extreme conditions will not last as long as a flag flown in a temperate climate. If you wish to preserve your flag, it should be brought in when strong winds are predicated. Note also that flags flown on standard poles will last longer than flags flown at great height, due to accelerated velocity of the wind.

The life of a flag also depends upon its flying time. A flag that is flown constantly (24 hours per day) cannot last as long as a flag flown from dawn ’til dusk. It must be recognised that the flying time of a flag is more than doubled, thus its life is considerably reduced.

We manufacture our flags using the best flag material and the best dyes that modern technology can contribute at the present time.

Flags can be expected to last between 6 and 12 months, however they have been known to last 2 years. They have also lasted less than 3 months on occasion, having left to fly through severe conditions, or having sustained damage from hitting against a roof or a wall during flying time. Flags must fly freely.

It is important that it is properly attached to the rope so that it does not wrap itself around repeatedly. Use flag clips for easy access.

Bring it in each evening and in bad weather for longer life.

Custom Flags

Custom Flags are printing via screen or digital print depending on the artwork and quantity. Any design can be print and too any size. We have a No Minimum order quantity.

We make all nation flags of course, usually to a ratio 2:1 format for the local market, but national flags to the correct proportions is no problem.

We can not give an exact answer to how long the flag will last, The government generally expects a polyester or cotton bunting flag to last approximately 180 days based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset – but not during periods of inclement weather. Tests have shown that in some cases a flag flown 24 hours a day will last only one-forth as long as one flown during daylight hours only.

Regardless of how well it is constructed, a flag is, after all, only a piece of cloth and will sooner or later succumb to the elements. However, it has been well documented that reasonably good care can contribute greatly to longer life.
