When you are purchasing a flag, one thing that you should stop to consider is the material the flag is made from.

Most flags are made of either Nylon or Polyester. Both Fabrics are good, but they have there differences.

Nylon Flags are lighter weight than polyester - so are great for the occasional outing, as they are easier to fly. They also have a "shiny" appearance.

Polyester Flags are slightly heavier, but are more resistant to weather conditions. These are great as something you may want to leave outside for short periods of time.

For example.
  • If you wanted to have a flag to tie to a pole, while you are at the races or motor sports event a nylon flag would be the better choice, as the lighter weight requires minimal wind to make them fly.
  • If you wanted to have a flag to hold, or wrap around yourself at a soccer or cricket or football match a polyester flag would be a better choice, as it is slightly stronger, and more weather resistant.

However - if you are buying a flag to hang in your bedroom, lounge room, shed or any other indoor place - either fabric is fine.
