200D Knitted Polyester This is a hefty flag that is made with knitted polyester. This material is one of strongest, most-durable materials available for flag making. This makes it one of the best choices if you plan on flying your flag continuously. This material makes for great flying, as it is much lighter in weight. This means that it does not take a lot of wind to move it.

500D Woven Polyester

Ideal For: Custom poles flags in high windy areas

Woven/500D Spun Polyester: Spun polyester is easily the most durable flag material you can get. The open weave reduces fabric stress and is resistant to high winds. This flag material is the best choice if you fly the flag 24 hours per day and you typically experience a higher wind speed. Spun polyester flags are made from a much heavier fabric, so they require a faster wind speed to move it. Because these flags are heavier, they also require more effort to raise and take down.

Summary

In conclusion, we recommend considering how you plan on using your flag and what sort of conditions it will be flown in. Indoor flags will typically have a longer lifespan, but with the proper care and treatment, outdoor flags have been known to last just as long.
