Here are some helpful tips to ensure that you get the maximum time and value out of your US Flag. There are many variables that go into the longevity of a flag and if you follow our suggestions you will get the most out of your flag.
First, our flags are made from industry leading Dupont nylon material. The materials are 100% sourced and manufactured in the United States. There is a double stitch applied to the stripes and a commanding 4 stitch lock applied to the hem of the flag for added protection. Our flag has been tested in every harsh environment we could think of. It has passed with flying colors.
With that said, here is a list of thing YOU can do to protect your flag.
1. This flag should be displayed in outdoor environments and was designed for exterior use.
2. Please try to avoid exposing your flag to extreme winds, rain and snow. Whereas our flags are made to handle these conditions.. nothing withstands Mother Nature and the elements for long. The better protection you offer the flag from these conditions, the longer the flag will last.
3. If your flag gets wet for any reason please let it dry before folding or rolling the flag up.
4. When placing you flag in an exterior location, please try to avoid placing it in an area where the flag will brush up against other objects. If your flag tears (even small tears) as a result of this action it could significantly decrease the lifespan of the flag.
5. In order to keep your colors bright, please keep your flag clean of dirt and other contaminants. Hand wash in warm water and soap. Don’t soak the flag as some detergents can/may cause color leakage. Allow flag to air dry.
6. Inspect your flag regularly to look for normal wear and tear. If the elements have caused fraying or tears you have the option to sew/repair the flag. We recommend doing this immediately as high wind and rain can cause the smallest of issues to become a bigger issue quickly.
7. If your flag needs to be “retired” and you wish to purchase a new one, please see our instructions on how to properly retire a flag in accordance with official flag etiquette and guidelines.
