The Best Quality Outdoor Flags.

MrFlag® brand Professional Quality outdoor printed flags are among the most versatile and best value flags on the market. Manufactured by us to produce optimum flying weights from top quality materials, our knitted polyester option is the best combination of fly-ability and durability. For a more durable option, try our Rhyfelwr™ polyester.

Almost all of our own-brand flags are available in both fabrics.

Professional quality printed or traditional sewn flags?

We expect MrFlag® brand Professional Quality outdoor printed 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 – but the purpose of a flag is to fly, not hang limply.

If another flagmaker claims that sewn flags last longer than printed for the same number of visible flying hours, challenge them to provide the test data!

Do you need anti-fray netting?

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 we are not aware of any statistical evidence to back this up. 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.

How long will our flags take to arrive?

These flags are made to order and customers should allow 5-7 days for them to be manufactured and despatched. If your order is time-sensitive, please tell us at the time of ordering.

How long will our flags last?

No flag lasts for ever. Even flags as durable and well-made as ours will succumb to high winds. The stronger and more frequent the wind, the sooner your flag will need to be replaced. This is normal wear and tear.

We regularly receive reports of our standard 110gsm knitted polyester flags lasting 12-18 months or longer, but this is not the norm and should not be expected.

Many customers replace their flags every six months or so and most within a year, but in the winter – especially during sustained high winds – this can be much less.

You can increase the life of any flag by taking it down at night, avoiding flying it during periods of severe weather, and also by ensuring that the flagpole is free of rough patches and protrusions upon which the flag can catch.
