Flags typically wear on the fly-edge (flapping end) because that is the working end.
Flag wear is significantly reduced by not flying your flag at night, just from dawn-to-darkness. If you do fly the flag overnight then protocol requires the flag to be illuminated. Flags should always be flown freely. If the flag touches a tree or a roof it will wear prematurely so be prepared to prune trees or move the flagpole.
flag repair is a cost-effective way to extend your flag's longevity. With in-house sewing, repairs are rarely a problem. Pennant House staff are happy to advise on flag repairs. Simply return your flag to Pennant House for a free quote.
