Nylon (200 Denier Nylon)
The most popular fabric choice for both outdoor and indoor flags. Nylon flags work best in areas where there is usually rain accompanying high winds. Nylon is light and durable, stands up well to the elements, and dries quickly. Because it’s light, it flies well in the slightest breeze and has a bright appearance in sunlight.
2-Ply Polyester (Spun Polyester)
The best choice in high wind areas, particularly where the climate is relatively dry. Ounce-for-ounce it’s longer wearing than nylon, but it’s also heavier than nylon so it won’t fly quite as well. Our 2 Ply Poleyster flags are made with a special weave that has the look and feel of cotton, flies well and lasts longer than traditional weaves.
Cotton (Just Cotton)
Cotton is the traditional flag fabric—so if you’re a purist, this is the fabric for you. Our 2 Ply Poleyster comes close, but nothing can quite duplicate the warmth of a cotton flag. Our Bulldog cotton flags are designed for outdoor use, but extra care should be taken to preserve your cotton flag.
*New* Duratex (Knit Polyester)
Our newest flag fabric is a tricot knit polyester. It is lighter and more "flyable" than our 2-ply polyester and more durable than our nylon flags. Our new polyester construction is great in both wet and windy conditions making this an all around flag. It is shiny like nylon and has an open weave like polyester.
