How to Care for Your Flags


Flags make a great addition to your ongoing marketing strategy and no doubt capture the attention of passersby. Follow these tips for regular maintenance and keep your flags flying high and looking great.

  1. Bring your flag indoors if you are experiencing inclement weather. Your flag is intended for outdoor use, however, to prevent rips, snags, and tears avoid heavy winds and rains.
  2. When not in use, fold your flags and store on a flat surface to prevent wrinkles.
  3. Hand wash your flag in cold water with a mild soap to eliminate stains. If you have a multicolored flag, quickly wash and remove from water to prevent the colors from bleeding.
  4. Wrinkles will relax once your flag is unpacked and hung. Do not apply heat to your flag (iron, dryer or otherwise) as this may cause damage.
  5. If you live in a coastal area, consider purchasing one of our rust resistant aluminum poles.
