Why Buy the 3' x 5' Nylon Cross of Burgundy Flag?
Spain's conquest of the New World began after Columbus' voyage; at its peak in the 16th century, it encompassed much of North, Central and South America. The Cross of Burgundy Flag's X-shaped saltire design refers back to the cross on which St. Andrew the Apostle was crucified. The St. Andrews Cross continues to be a familiar element of many European and even American state flag designs.
Also known as the “Flag of New Spain," Carrot-Top's 3' x 5' Cross of Burgundy Flag is a faithful version of this historic international flag, rendered with modern materials and construction. Its lightweight nylon fabric will flutter and fly in even a light breeze, and its 3' x 5' size is suitable for a 20-25' flag pole; you may consider pairing it with a 4' x 6' United States or state flag. It's also a good choice for parade use or for a 6' outrigger flagpole, where it can hang at an angle and show its full detail.
Its two rows of stitching at the top and bottom and four rows at the fly end mean it's well-suited for outdoor use in light to moderate winds, and its UV-resistant material will resist fading in the sun's rays. The single-reverse digital printing will display properly on one side and reversed on the other.
