Frequently Asked Questions About Cotton U.S. Flags
Please read our FAQ before purchasing your cotton U.S. flag.
1. Are cotton U.S. flags suitable for outdoor use?
While cotton U.S. flags are primarily designed for indoor use due to their delicate nature, they can also be displayed outdoors for short periods, such as during special events or ceremonies. However, extended exposure to harsh weather conditions may cause the colors to fade and the fabric to deteriorate.
2. How do I care for my cotton U.S. flag?
To keep your cotton U.S. flag looking its best, avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and harsh weather conditions. If your flag becomes dirty, gently hand wash it using a mild detergent and cold water, then air dry it. Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals.
3. What is the expected lifespan of a cotton U.S. flag?
The lifespan of a cotton U.S. flag depends on various factors, including how frequently it's displayed outdoors and the weather conditions it's exposed to. With proper care and limited outdoor use, a cotton U.S. flag can last for several months to a few years.
4. How do I attach my cotton flag to my flagpole?
The choice of how to hang your display depends on the type of flagpole you intend to use. For outdoor flagpoles, you can easily attach a cotton flag using snap hooks and halyard. If you're considering displaying your U.S. cotton flag indoors on a flagpole that's 1” or smaller in diameter, we recommend using flag collars. For larger indoor flagpoles, simply secure the flag with zip ties.
5. What size is the typical funeral or casket flag?
The standard flag used for funerals to drape over the casket is 5’x9.5' and is traditionally made from cotton. If it is a funeral of a military member, then please check with the ceremony director if a government-specified 5’x9.5' flag is required.
7. How do I fold a flag for my display case?
To respect the flag code, you must fold the flag so that it only shows the blue field. In our blog “What is the Proper Way to Fold an American Flag?” we go over the steps needed for a crisply folded American flag.
