DESCRIPTION OF OUR FABRICS (BELOW)

DETERMINING FLAG SIZE

The length of the flag should be at least 1/4 the height of the pole. For example, a 40' pole requires a 6x10' flag or larger. This guideline applies to poles 20' and larger. Most residential flags are 3x5' or 4x6'. Most small industrial and commercial buildings use either a 5x8' or a 6x10' flag. Major industrial, municipal and government buildings require 8x12' and larger. However, the size of the pole is the determining factor.

All fabrics used in Annin flags are made to strict specifications developed from extensive research, testing and long experience. Now, with the addition of Dettra's resources, an even wider variety of materials are available to satisfy your most exacting set of standards. Annin's quality control insures that we can offer you, our customers, the best quality flags and banners. You can find cheaper flags, but not flags of higher quality.
