PLEASE NOTE:   Major flag manufacturers are experiencing shortages of labor and materials. As a result, shipments from our suppliers have become unpredictable, often with delays of weeks or even months in supplying most types and sizes of U.S. flags. We regret that we may not be able to fill your order in a timely manner and will inform you if a significant delay is expected.

3 ft x 5 ft is the most common size of U.S. flag for residential use, such as a flag mounted on a home's porch or near the front door. For in-ground flagpoles, the long dimension of the flag should be 1/4 to 1/3 the height of the flagpole.


Nylon is the most widely used flag fabric. It flies well in the slightest breeze, has a dense weave that dries quickly after a rain. These flags have a glossy, slightly puckered appearance. Made with 200-denier UV-resistant nylon. "Nyl-Glo" brand flags by Annin have a one-year colorfast warranty.

Polyester flags are more resistant to high winds than nylon flags and require more breeze to fly. The more open weave reduces fabric stress but makes the flag heavy when wet and takes longer to dry. These flags have an appearance very similar to traditional cotton, but are far more durable and fade resistant. Made with 2-ply spun polyester with UV-resistant dyes. "Tough-Tex" brand flags by Annin have a one-year colorfast warranty.

Cotton flags are recommended primarily for ceremonial, indoor or occasional outdoor use. Cotton is much less durable and less fade resistant than either nylon or polyester. Made with heavy cotton bunting.   Flags for caskets are usually 5 ft x 9-1/2 ft cotton flags.


All the U.S. flags on this website are made in the U.S.A.
