If you are looking for a new American flag to buy, there are a few things you should consider before you buy one.
These things can help you find the nicest American flag you have ever owned, as well as buy a high quality one that will last you for years to come.
Made in America -- Only consider buying an American flag made in America. After all, it makes little sense to buy a flag made in China or Vietnam if the whole point of owning one is to support America.
Buy a flag with a guarantee -- The best American flags come with at least a one year warranty. Make sure the one you order does as you do not want to hang it and then have it rip during the first week of use but not be able to return it for a full refund.
A blend of polyester and cotton -- The best American flags tend to be made from a mixture of polyester and cotton. That type of blend makes the flag extremely strong and durable, and able to withstand inclement weather and high winds.
Do not choose an all-cotton American flag as they not only tend to rip easier but they also are difficult to press when you wash them.
Double-stitched hems -- If you truly want your American flag to last a long time, look for one with a double-stitched hem. This type of stitching makes the flag more durable as well as slightly heavier.
That heft will make it fly a little bit stiffer and make it look nicer hanging on your flagpole.
Choosing a nice American Flag is not that difficult if you follow these few rules. Do so and you will soon own a flag you absolutely love.
