About Our Flags

 Linen Cloth flags

These are specially sewn using natural linen (180 g/sqm) to recreate the authentic vintage look. Up to the 20th century most flags were manufactured using natural sturdy fabrics, such as wool, cotton or linen (flax).  The latter has a distinctive irregular weave due to wavy composition of the flax thread. This special quality gives our flags pleasant antique feel and fine aesthetic attractiveness.

Linen is three times as strong as cotton and was common fabric for sails' making up to 20th century when synthetic fibres were introduced. Today, we recommend using linen cloth flags solely for decorative purposes, nevertheless they can be seldom used outdoors in moderate weather. Most common ways of using linen cloth flags include: framing, curtain making, pillows, throws and even clothes making.

Commercial operators might also consider economy version of our woven poly flags, which carry a combination of quality printed and sewn design.

Woven Polyester flags (printed)

On some occasions dye-sublimation printed flags is cost effective alternative to fully sewn woven polyester ones. Made using same UK manufactured MoD approved flag fabric (155 g/sqm), they can be done either double sided (same quality front/back) or one sided (approx. 70% back side visibility). Due to pricey embroidery work, many sewn British ensigns carrying complicated arms can be fitted with printed arms.

Printed woven polyester flags would last as long as fully sewn ones, hence can be safely used in extreme everyday conditions.
