Product Materials

The materials used for this product

As standard our boat flags are produced using spun polyester. However, we use knitted polyester for our bespoke printed boat flags.

Spun Polyester:

A traditional looking and long-lasting flag fabric, approved by the MOD for naval flags. This material lasts at least 50+% longer than our standard Knitted Polyester. This is suitable for people and companies wanting a great looking flag with added longevity.

Knitted Polyester:  
Our standard flag material, knitted polyester is used both internally and externally. These flags are suitable for mirror image due to our digital print method. 90% of all flags produced in the UK are made from Knitted Polyester.

All of our boat flag materials are designed to be used on boats, making sure they are weather resistant and durable and can withstand the conditions faced by ships and yachts.
