Flag Tips

  • The length of the flag should be between 1/4 and 1/3 the height of the flagpole. Flags should not be used on days when the weather is extremely bad.
  • A flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner so it can be easily torn, soiled, or damaged.
  • Folding a flag properly will lead to longevity for the product. Hold the flag horizontal to the ground, tightly at the ends with two people. The exposed flag edge seam folds should be facing up. Make a single lengthwise fold, with the exposed sewn seams of the flag facing up and the smooth edge down. Pull tight and keep taut. No seam edge folds are now visible after folding. Make another single fold. Pull tight again. Holding the flag taught at both ends without relaxing the fabric, start folding a triangle from the fold to the edge at a right angle. Continue folding tight, 90-degree triangles while assuring the folds are smooth.
  • Repeat this procedure until the flag has been completely folded
  • A finished flag, properly folded, is smooth, taut and squarely stowed.
  • Do not wash your flag in a washing machine. Wash by hand using mild detergent a soft cloth gently rub the dirty area till clean. Do not iron or place in a clothes drier.
