5. How long will my flag last?

There is no specific answer to that question. It depends on the location. Flags downtown will be less strained by the wind but will become dim and dirty sooner due to pollution. Strong wind, sun and rain also contribute to flag wear.

The U.S. government expects a flag to last 90 days, based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset - but not during periods of inclement weather. (you can visit link here: https://www.collinsflags.com/flaglast.cfm)

Our company estimates the life of a flag that flies constanly under all weather conditions to be 3 - 5 months.

Ways to prolong life of your flag:

  • Don't fly the flag when it is very windy (6 on the beufaurt scale or more) and rainy. Rain ads weight to the flag and together with  the wind puts a lot of strain on the fabric and the stitches. 
  • The stitching at the fly end of the flag will be the first part to wear. You may re-stitch the flag to prolong its life.
  • Make sure that your flag flies free on the pole. Trees, poles or other obstacles that hinder the flying of the flag will weaken stitches and fabric.
