Professional quality Remembrance Day flag, digitally printed in the UK using high grade knitted polyester.
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Hostilities in WWI formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. Designed to be flown on 11 November, the focus of the Remembrance Day Flag is barbed-wire wrapped posts synonymous with the First World War and representing the time and day of the cessation of hostilities. These posts are set onto a quartered field representing the Royal Navy (dark blue), Army (Red), Royal Flying Corps / Royal Air Force (light blue), and the Home Front (green).
MrFlag® brand Professional Quality flags are among the most versatile and best value flags on the market in the UK today. Combining quality materials and optimum flying weights, we expect these flags to last as well as sewn flags whilst flying much better at lower wind speeds.
In our view heavier sewn flags appear to last longer only because they spend less time flying in light wind. If another flagmaker claims that sewn flags last longer than printed, challenge them to provide the test data!
Fitted with rope and toggle as standard, Professional Quality flags can be fitted with metal eyelets or a sleeve at no extra charge. Please specify when ordering.
These flags are printed to order to ensure the very latest and most accurate Flag Institute approved designs are always used. Allow 7 days for despatch.
*Choosing the ‘Antifray’ option results in a piece of white netting being sewn to the right edge of the flag. It is commonly held that this netting will fray first thus prolonging the life of a flag, however there is no statistical evidence whatever to back this. We believe it is an unnecessary expense which, in many cases, has the opposite effect to that which is intended. We offer an ‘Antifray’ option ONLY because customers occasionally insist on it. We do not recommend it.
