Let Northline Express take the guess work out of buying your next polyester flag or nylon flag by giving you the information you need to make the right choice.

Sewn nylon flags are the most popular outdoor flags. They are very attractive to look at, durable, affordable, and they fly with the least wind.

Sewn Polyester flags are our most durable flags, and are the best option if you intend to fly the flag 24/7. They require more wind than nylon flags to "fly" as they are heavier. They are made from a special type of polyester fabric which looks like coarse cotton in texture. They are also the most expensive flags.

Cotton flags Our Online Stores Brand are made from densely woven heavy cotton fabric, with rich vibrant colors. They make attractive flags for indoor display. These flags have sewn stripes and embroidered stars. They are not designed for use outdoors. We also offer Cotton flags made by Valley Forge which are suitable for outdoor use but are not as attractive indoors.

Banners All these American flags have grommets for flagpole use. We also offer Banner type flags which have a sleeve to attach the flag to the pole.

Printed US FlagsWe offer a choice of very low cost printed polyester flags, and more durable Superknit polyester flags.

Flags up to 6ft x 10ft have grommets for flagpole use. Larger sizes have roped headings with thimble ends.
