Taking good care of your flag is essential to ensure it lasts for as long as possible.

  • Allow your flag to fly freely without touching obstructions, foliage, or structures. Contact with obstructions can cause wear and tear on the flag. 

  • Launder or dry clean your flag when it becomes soiled. Flags made by Flags of All Nations can safely be dry cleaned. To launder, immerse the flag in a bucket of hot, rich laundry powder solution and let it stand for about three days before putting it through a normal machine cycle. Cleaning your flag will help reduce wear and keep it looking its best.

  • Bring your flag inside during stormy weather or excessive winds. Strong winds can increase the natural whipping action of the flag, causing increased wear and tear. In addition, flags can become full of water in stormy weather, which can increase the stress on the fabric in violent wind gusts.

  • Do not pack your flag away wet, as atmospheric pollution can collect on it and cause unpleasant odors. Instead, let it air dry after wet weather.

  • If your flag is caught in a storm, check it for wear and consider returning it to Flags of All Nations for maintenance and repair. Unattended damage can quickly accelerate the deterioration of a flag.

Most flags are flown 24/7 by their owners, and those made by Flags of All Nations will stand up well with proper care.
