Flag Buying Guide
KNOW YOUR FLAG
Use this guide to help you understand the abbreviations used in our flag inventory and decide which will work best for your needs.
H&G | HEADER AND GROMMET
A header and grommet flag has a canvas header with brass grommets to attach the flag to the pole. They are often used on vertical flag poles or flag sets that attach to a house.
PH | POLE HEM
The end of the flag that goes on the pole is sewn so the pole is pushed through, not attached with a header and grommet.
PHF | POLE HEM AND FRINGE
One end of the flag is hemmed and the pole pushes through the end with gold fringe around the flag. This is considered honorable enrichment only.
R&T | ROPE AND THIMBLE
Rope and metal thimble on flags offer the attachment point that secures the flag to the pole. Larger flags require more stability than a rope offers because the weight of a larger flag has more potential to tear a header off of the flagpole.
