Our fully sewn & embroidered, nylon American flags are crafted from top quality, SolarMax™ Nylon. It's the best flag nylon available. It has a slight sheen and is slightly translucent. It's our most popular US flag because it is light enough to fly in gentle breezes, yet strong enough to outlast most other flags. For most situations, our nylon flags will be the ideal choice. But for areas where there are frequent strong winds, our 2-ply polyester American flags are recommended.
