Flags Unlimited's flags are made from durable flag material. Materials that are designed to help prolong the flags life. Unfortunately, nothing will prevent a flag from eventually becoming worn and tattered. There are many factors that contribute to the speed at which your flag will breakdown. If you are flying your flag outdoors everyday without taking it down at night, you should plan to replace your flag every three to six months.
We know that you want to keep your flag looking it's best. So, here are some tips to help you extend the life of your flag.
If flying your flag outdoors, make sure it has been designed for outdoor use.
To get the maximum life out of your flag, don't expose it to freezing rain, heavy snow or abnormally high winds. We recommend bringing your flag inside during extreme weather.
If and when storing your flag, make sure it is completely dry before putting it away.
Do not place the flag where it can touch or whip against hard or rough surfaces like wire, brick, branches or cables. A small tear can result in larger damage to the flag.
Inspect your flag regularly for signs of damage. The most common area is the fly end. With Flags Unlimited's DuraKnit III® series the fly end can be trimmed to extend the life of the flag.
Make sure the pole is free of heavy dirt, rust or corrosion. This could also damage your flag.
