World Flags
  • World flags have an incredible amount of
    importance and symbolism to people all over the
    globe. They can be flown as a sign of peace and
    war, or hung as a sign of ceremonial importance,
    or defaced as a sign of hatred and violence
    people have rallied behind flags as a symbol of
    unity or dissidence alike. Flags have the ability
    to stir great emotions in all kinds of people,
    and on a local scale they can represent different
    groups or organizations. Flags demonstrate
    ideology and history, and their creation tells
    about a country or organizations background and
    beliefs.

  • Historically, flags were first flown in battle to
    let troops know specific information while they
    were on the field. They were often used to show
    troop location or organization, and many times
    they displayed a family coat of arms or house
    symbol. Countries soon began to adopt flags as
    well, essentially derived from coat of arms or
    other religious symbols, but they were usually
    only used during war. By the beginning of the
    17th century ships began to fly their countrys
    flag peacefully to help identify the vessel, but
    it was not for several hundred years that flags
    became to be used casually during times of peace.
    Many European flags were derived from medieval
    wartime symbols.

  • As you choose a flag, understand that
    economy lightweight polyester flags are great for
    indoor use or temporary outdoor use. If, however,
    you are looking for a sturdier, weather-resistant
    flag for outdoor use, we recommend that you
    purchase a nylon flag. Nylon is the most popular
    fabric choice for both outdoor and indoor flags.
    Nylon is light and durable, stands up well to the
    elements, and dries quickly. Because its light,
    it flies well in the slightest breeze and has a
    bright appearance in sunlight.

  • If you are an American, we strongly urge you to
    display the American flag, along with another
    country flag of your choosing. Just please keep
    in mind, that when flags of countries, states,
    cities, localities, or pennants of societies are
    flown on the same halyard with the flag of the
    United States, the latter should always be at the
    peak. When the flags are flown from adjacent
    staffs, the flag of the United States should be
    hoisted first and lowered last. No such flag or
    pennant may be placed above the flag of the
    United States or to the right of the flag of the
    United States.
  • When flags of two or more nations are displayed,
    they are to be flown from separate staffs of the
    same height. The flags should be of approximately
    equal size. International usage forbids the
    display of the flag of one nation above that of
    another nation in time of peace.

  • When displayed from a staff in a church or public
    auditorium, the flag of the United States of
    America should hold the position of superior
    prominence, in advance of the audience, and in
    the position of honor at the clergymans or
    speakers right as he faces the audience. Any
    other flag so displayed should be placed on the
    left of the clergyman or speaker or to the right
    of the audience.
