National & International Flags

The combination of modern materials and traditional methods ensures unsurpassed colour fastness and length of life.

We are able to supply flags of any nation, mostly from our extensive stock. National flags vary in shape and proportion. The normal practice when flags are flown together is for them to be made to suit the flag of the host country. Thus in Britain we supply flags to match the Union Jack (2:1 proportion) unless requested otherwise. If you are purchasing flags for use overseas you may consider changing the proportions of your flags to match those of the host nation as a sign of courtesy.

We are able to supply flags to all shapes and sizes. Prices will reflect the amount of material used and the complexity of the design.

Flags for Hire

We can supply a range of National flags for hire on a weekly basis. The main stock is held in 2 yd size with a few available in 2½ and 3 yard sizes.

Sizing of Flags

When the flag is to be flown on top of the building the safest way to estimate its size is to draw a scale diagram to show the height of the building and the size of the flagstaff. It is then a simple matter to draw a suitably sized flag. Don't forget to take account of any supporting stays or struts which could foul the flag when it is limp against the flagstaff.

When a flag is to fly from a flagstaff set in the ground it is suggested that one yard of flag should be allowed for each 10' of staff. A 25' staff would therefore need a 2.5 yard flag and a 40' staff, a 4 yard flag.

Flag Protocol

Where there are two or more flagpoles next to one another the home national flag should be flown from the flagpole on the left when facing a building. In the event of one flagpole being taller than the others, the home national flag should be flown from the tallest.

Subject to the above, we suggest all other national flags should be placed from the left in alphabetical order.

Our Flags

National and International flags are normally manufactured in woven polyester as tested and recommended by the British Admiralty.

The price of each flag is governed by its simplicity or its complexity and therefore graded into categories.

For prices of individual national flags please choose the country(s).

On occasions due to quantity manufacture (popularity) dyeprinted versions are available.
