Super Duty-Heavy Duty American Flag

Our super duty-heavy duty American flags are made of heavy grade nylon mesh that was originally designated for use in commercial flags. It is designed to fly in a light breeze, but to allow the wind to pass through the mesh in the material during high winds to help it dry faster and minimize abrasion. Because of its design, this flag has the benefits of our traditional nylon flags and the added durability of our two-ply poly flags, but will outlast them both.



Our super duty American flag is made of 100 percent lightweight nylon open knit mesh fabric. Each flag has a durable header and attached brass grommets for connecting to the flagpole.



We have super duty flags available ranging from 4 x 6 to 30 x 60 feet. The size that you need will depend on the height of your flagpole and its wind speed and load bearing rating. For example, a 4 x 6 is suitable to be flown on a 25 foot pole while a 30 x 60 feet is suitable for an 80 foot or taller pole. Attaching a flag that is larger than the flagpole is rated for can result in personal injury and property damage.


When to Fly Your Flag

The United States Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, was enacted in 1942 to give guidelines on how to show proper respect to the American flag. The code notes that the flag should not be displayed on bad weather days unless it is an all weather flag. Our super duty American flag is a durable, all weather flag that complies with this portion of the code. It also directs that the flag should only be flown from sunrise to sunset, but if a patriotic effect is desired, it may be displayed if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness. If your existing flagpole does not have illumination, we would be happy to help you choose the lighting that will suit your needs.


Note that the U.S. Code is designed to be a guide to the respectable treatment of the United States flag and is to be followed on a voluntary basis. 


Flag Etiquette

In addition to the above, the U.S. Code guidelines suggest that the flag:

  • Should be raised briskly and lowered ceremoniously
  • No other flag should be flown above the American flag
  • Should never touch anything beneath it including the ground, floor or water
  • The flag should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning, when it is no longer in a fit condition.


The above is a short list that pertains to most citizens who fly the American flag. For the full version related to flag etiquette, you should review the full code.
