Construction

Stars

  • Embroidered stars (standard on most flags) are densely filled with high-gloss polished white thread for a rich finish.
  • Printed stars (on select styles) do not block the light shining through the fabric, meaning the stars appear bright no matter what angle of the sun.
  • Appliquéd stars for flags 12' x 18' and larger

Stripes

  • Sewn sripes (standard on most flags) are constructed with double-stitched seams for added quality.  The red & white stripes are sewn together for a traditional look.
  • Printed stripes (on select styles) use a dyed fabric for an economical choice.

Edges

  • Outside edges (fly-end) are reinforced with 4 rows of lock stitching to resist tearing, insuring a longer-lasting flag.

Headings

  • Heavy white polyester canvas headings for stability
  • Full-sized brass grommets for durability.
  • 6' x 10' and smaller: solid brass grommets
  • 8' x 12' and larger: roped canvas headings with galvanized thimbles
