When you buy flags it is important to take care of your flags. Just like when you buy flagpoles a maintenance program is vital to get the best life span from your purchase,
Flags in wind and rainy conditions
We recommend that you don't fly flags in strong winds, please note that if it is windy at ground level it will be a great deal worse at the top of a flagpole, heavy rain combined with strong winds are the worst conditions for a flag and flagpole, as the rain increases the weight of the flag and then in turn when the wind gusts there is a huge increase of force against the flag pole and halyard, prolonged use in these weather conditions will cause damage to your new flags. You should never fly any flags in force 7 or above weather conditions,
