Choosing the right material for your flag?

2022-11-14 Page view : 29 views

The decision on which fabric to choose when purchasing an outdoor flags is important. You need to take into consideration where you live, which is for flyability and if you plan on flying the flag for a long time, durability will be the most priority for fabric. Let’s take a look at the three main fabrics for flags: polyester, nylon and cotton.

Polyester is the most durable of fabrics for flags. It would be your choice if you choose to fly your flag 24/7. They are a heavier fabric, so they do require more wind to “fly”. There are two types of polyester that CQFLAG offers: knitted polyester and woven polyester. And both of them are 100% polyester.
For 100% knitted polyester, we have stormflag, shining stormflag, display fine, satin, longlife, airtext and table banner complex with different weight.
And pictures below are for fabric construction.

For 100% woven polyester, we have tableflag fabric, shipflag, fanflag, oxford and oxford with PV coating. Shipflag fabric has the strongest outdoor resistance to harsh use environment among all fabrics, and usually has a long service life.

Nylon flags are considered the “all weather flag” due to its ability to fly in low winds and shed water, making it an ideal flag for wet climate areas.
Cotton flags, while vibrant in color, are not designed for outdoor use. Consumers can use cotton flags for outdoor use, but it is recommended for only short-term use. Cotton flags are more likely to fade, stain, shrink and lose their shape when displayed outside. Cotton flags are ideal for indoor display.
