As one of the oldest flag retailers in the business, we take pride in delivering top-tier flags from the best flag makers in America. For years, we have built a reputation for providing state and American flags that fly beautifully while withstanding fierce winds and harsh weather. In a testament to our commitment to quality, we're excited to introduce our latest offering, the Patriarch® Tough-Ply Poly Flag, now available for the five major U.S. military branches and all 55 U.S. states and territories. Read this blog post to learn more about the unique qualities of this remarkable flag. 

What Makes Our Patriarch® Tough-Ply Poly Flags Special? 

Our Tough-Ply Poly Flags combine the best attributes of our nylon and spun polyester flags. In addition to being expertly crafted by hardworking Americans, these flags exhibit exceptional durability and cutting-edge fabric technology to create a flag that flies beautifully in all types of weather. 

Built for outdoor weather 

Like nylon and polyester, Tough-Ply Poly flags are expertly crafted to endure the harshest outdoor conditions. They feature a sturdy poly-duck canvas header and rust-resistant brass grommets for easy flagpole attachment. Each flag is meticulously hemmed on the top and bottom and features four rows of fly-end stitching to protect the flag against fraying and tearing. While these features are standard among outdoor flags, our commitment to quality ensures that each flag exceeds the highest standards, producing a superior product.  

Lightweight, breathable construction 

Tough-Ply Poly flags weigh less than traditional spun polyester due to an innovative new technique called Open Weave technology. Open Weave technology means these flags are created from polyester fibers manufactured into four-ounce weaves. This gives the fabric a mesh-like appearance while reducing bulk. In addition to weighing less and requiring less wind to fly, this reduces wear on the flag. Instead of deteriorating the fabric, wind can pass through the breathable fibers with little resistance. Because this fabric is more lightweight than traditional spun polyester, it dries faster and even flies when wet. The wicking properties prevent mold and mildew, making it an excellent flag in areas with heavy rain.


Because of Tough-Ply Poly's unique fabric properties, these flags perform excellently in wet, windy areas. They are great to hang in front of your beachside resort and create beautiful porch flag displays in areas with harsh weather. Consider flying Tough-Ply Poly if you live near the mountains, coast, or open plains.


Vibrant colors with UV resistance 

Our Tough-Ply Poly Flags are pre-treated for UV resistance, ensuring the flag retains its vivid colors throughout extended displays. The unique fabric allows 98% color penetration, ensuring deep and vibrant hues. While these flags are mostly printed in single-reverse, the deep colors and mesh fabric create an emblem or state seal that's nearly as vivid on the back of the flag as the front.


Precision printing for intricate details 

Compared to nylon or polyester flags, Tough-Ply Poly Flags use state-of-the-art printing to capture intricate details within the state or military emblems. This high-resolution printing technique ensures that the flag will capture each element with laser-sharp accuracy and minimal bleeding. Tough-Ply Poly Flags are excellent if you live in a state with a very detailed flag and want something that's extra beautiful and exquisite. 

100% manufactured in the U.S.A 

Each Tough-Ply Poly Flag is handcrafted by our partners U.S. Flag Maker, located right here in the U.S.A. When you buy Tough-Ply Poly Flags, you continue to support small businesses and hardworking American workers like yourself.
