Caring For Your Flag

Extreme Weather Conditions

Strong winds and rain can cause damage to flags of many fabrics. Even all-weather flags will wear faster in these conditions. It’s best to take flags down in bad weather. It’s also important to check your flag regularly for damage. Larger flags (10ft x 15ft and up) need to be checked for wear at least twice a month. Many people will buy two flags and rotate them frequently. That way one flag can be repaired and cleaned while the other is displayed.

Caring for your Flag

  • Do not store a damp flag. It can get moldy. Allow it to dry and store it in a moisture-proof container.
  • If your flag is dirty, you can hand wash it in cold water with mild detergent and allow it to air dry. You can also take it to the dry cleaners. Washing your flag regularly will increase its lifespan.
  • You can do minor repairs to your flag as long as they are not noticeable and it is still a fitting emblem. Flags in bad condition should be retired and replaced.
  • Position your flagpole in a clear area where your flag won’t whip against rough services, branches or anything it can snag on.
  • Keep your flagpole clean and in good repair. Rust can stain and corrode your flag and rough edges can tear it.
