F.A.Q. - How Long Should A Flag Last?
How long any flag will last depends on such factors as, weather, its location, airborne contamination and how often your fly your own flag. Remember, your flag is a piece of material that works very, very hard. Throughout its lifetime your flag shakes, snaps, chafes, bakes, freezes, furls, twists, flaps, flies, unfurls, and hangs! Is it any wonder a flag that flies continuously needs replacing two or three times a year?
No one can control the weather but you can take some important steps to lengthen the
life of your flag:
1) Always let your flag dry thoroughly before storing it to prevent mildew or color transfer.
2) At the first sign of fraying, have your flag repaired before further damage is done.
