Written by on November 5, 2020 in Stuff with 0 Comments

There is a story that every flag tells. You can find many flags on the market,  and they all symbolize a lot of things. Hence, if you want to buy a flag, such as a state and military flag, it means it’s relevant to your needs.

Getting that specific type of flag that can meet your desires is important. So before you choose a flag you need to know exactly what you want in a flag. This post explains some important things you need to know when buying a flag.


What you want to use with a flag will determine the type of fabric needed in it. Therefore, you should always discuss with your flag supplier like – Ultimate Flags about the best materials available. Keep in mind that you can find indoor flags that are made of high-quality materials. These flags can also be double-sided and embroidered. Many of them hang in gymnasiums and government offices.

Besides these flags, you can also find indoor flags which are also known as fan flags. These are used for special events where you can wave them to show your support. Quite often, these flags are found in universities and you can hang them in man caves and dorm rooms.

Printing techniques

You can come across single-sided flags. These are the most basic and they display the printed content on their one side. Therefore, you can view the flag’s artistry from the side it was printed on. You can also view the flag’s content on the other side, though it may not have 100% clarity. No wonder, these flags are affordable and suitable if you don’t have a lot of information to show.

Aside from single-sided flags, you can also find single-sided reverse flags. These flags are printed on both sides and one side is printed in reverse. A simple way to explain this is by looking at a reflection in a mirror, so when you view anything in that mirror, you will see the reverse of the thing reflected in the mirror in the same way a single-sided reverse flag does.

Lastly, there are double-sided flags that display on both sides. They can have the same content on both sides or even different content on both sides. These flags are suitable if you have plenty of information you intend to display. The good part is that both sides of the flag can have great quality prints.

Finish options

There are various finish options in flags, and these include hemming, sleeve, and grommets. Hemming flags are made by folding about 1” of fabric over to the backside and stitching through the two layers.

The sleeve uses a pole hem or pole sleeve to hang flags indoors. It can slide to an indoor flagpole and has a small tab sewn in the sleeve to attach the flag to the pole.

Lastly, you can find grommets which is a ring inserted into a hole via a thin material usually a sheet of fabric, wood, or a composite of carbon fiber. Grommets can be flared or even collared on their sides to keep them in place.
