Nothing says pride like a flag hung high for all to see. The sound of the chain clanking against a flagpole, this joy of raising it up first thing in the morning, and the sight of showing your support to a country that stands for freedom are all things that remain remarkable to our senses and are just another reason why we have American flags for sale. However, getting the most for your money when it comes to flags means taking into consideration how the flag will be used, your climate, and other factors.
- How your flag will be used: Usually American flags are flown outside, however there are some who like to see it adorn their walls inside their homes. In the case when a flag is hung indoors, the kind of material isn't usually a concern. However, if you are hanging it outside, you will want at least two, perhaps three flags so you can be ready with a fresh, clean one when the other gets worn.
- Your climate: Obviously having a flag outside is going to make it susceptible to wind and climate changes. If you live in an area that doesn't receive a lot of wind then a nylon flag will be perfect for you. However, if you live in an area that is windy or suffers from frequent and severe weather, then a more durable, 2-ply, super duty flag it just right.
- If you intend to fly your flag on a flagpole, then check out our sizing chart so you can know what size will suit it best and ensure the safety of your pole.
