To Prolong the Life of Your Flag...

Tip 1

Do not use in extreme weather conditions. That flag can be used in wind speeds up to 18mph. If you use the flag in speeds above 18mph you will limit the life span of your flag

Tip 2

Allow your flag to fly in an open area. Rubbing against a wall for example will cause unnecessary wear on the flag material.

Tip 3

Avoid using the carry case for larger bases. It is designed with the poles and flag weight in mind.

Tip 4

Always wash your flag at 30º with a mild detergent should it become dirty and remember to dry it fully before packing it away.
