Wind can damage flags. Watch Annin's video linked below on caring for your flag.

Annin Video-Caring for your Flag

Windy March

Many customers ask us about the life of their flag.  It is a good idea to take your flag down in high winds. Our desert winds can typically gust to 40mph and can cause damage to the fly-end of flags or to attachments.
Flying a flag that is too big or too heavy for the wind rating on the pole is dangerous and can cause damage.
The link below is to our website information on caring for your flag.

The life expectancy of a flag will depend on the exposure to the elements. Taking your flag down before high winds occur will prolong the life of your flag.
All fabrics eventually are damaged by the elements. Sun, wind, rain, and ice and snow will weaken flag fabrics. Also, a flag "hitting" on nearby trees, buildings or another pole placed too closely, will quickly wear the flag.

  1. If possible take down the flag in high winds, rain or icy conditions.
  2. Air pollution like dust, smoke and car emissions damage fabric. Keep the flag clean to prolong the life of your flag.  Cleaning flags doesn't always mean a white color is bright white again, however removing the dirt particles from the fabric prolongs life of the material.
  3. Frayed fly-ends on USA flags can be trimmed and re-hemmed, until the top row of stripes are too short for the proper look of the flag, no shorter than the field of blue. Also, emblem flags such as Nevada State flag can be repaired until the emblem side of the flag is half the size of the flag body. Flags with full size logos can be repaired until the logo is disrupted by a new hem.
Flags Unlimited is proud to provide flags from Annin Flag Company, the oldest and largest flag manufacturer in the USA.

**Flags Unlimited Repairs Flags**

For larger commercial flags, we offer a flag repair service. Call us to help determine if your flag can be repaired and for pricing.
Repairing a torn fly-end right away extends the life of your flag.
For commercial poles, the best practice is to have three flags, one to fly, one being repaired, and a "Holiday" flag to be flown on special days.
