Flag Materials

Our stock flags are available in three main fabric types: Knitted Polyester, Woven Polyester, and Fully Sewn. Each fabric offers unique characteristics to suit various environments and purposes. It is important to understand the differences in order to choose the right type of flag for your needs.

Knitted polyester is a lightweight fabric that is suitable for indoor and outdoor use and flies easily in the wind. It is recommended for use in calm to moderate environments, as it will fly even in a slight breeze.

Woven polyester is a heavy-duty linen-look fabric that is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. It is considered to be longer-lasting and more durable than knitted polyester, and has a higher UV resistance, making it suitable for harsher conditions. 

Fully sewn flags are the most prestigious-looking option. They are made from the same woven polyester material as flag bunting, but the design is sewn on rather than printed, giving it a premium look.

It's important to note that flag life will depend on weather conditions including wind, rain, and UV exposure. For tips on maximising the lifespan of your flag, visit our Flag Care page.
