How to Care for Your New Flag or Banner
Here are a few simple suggestions to help you enjoy your new Canadian-made flag or banner longer.
To get the maximum life out of your flags, The Flag Shop recommends buying two flags per flag pole. When the first flag gets dirty and needs minor repairs, take it down, wash and repair it, and replace it with your flag number two. Resting a flag will allow the fibres to relax and restore themselves. When the second flag is dirty, repeat the process. You should get the lifespan of 3 flags for the price of 2.
Your flag or banner should last from 60 days to a year based upon daily exposure to the sun and weather conditions.The CORRECT way to rig a Halyard (Rope) to an Outdoor Flagpole
There is a right way and a wrong way to arrange or rig the halyard to an outdoor pole. The wrong way puts all the flying strain and stretch on the heading of the flag and can result in the rope and toggle pulling out. The right way puts the strain on the halyard where it belongs and therefore protects the flag, making it wear better and longer.Download our brochures:
