Outdoor Beacon® Nylon Iowa Flags
Our nylon flags are made from lightweight and moisture-resistant 200-denier nylon. As our most lightweight flag fabric, it flies effortlessly in gentle winds. While not recommended for windy areas, nylon is the only state flag fabric suitable for outrigger flagpoles. Choose from seven sizes to match the height of your flagpole: 12" x18", 2'x3', 3'x5', 4'x6', 5'x8', 6'x10', and 8'x12'.
Outdoor Patriarch® Polyester Iowa Flags
Patriarch® polyester flags look and feel like cotton but maintain their integrity even in the face of months of relentless winds. If you reside in an area with particularly harsh weather conditions, we recommend combining your Iowa US state flag with one of our high-quality architectural-grade flagpoles. Our polyester outdoor Iowa flags spun from two-ply polyester, are available in three popular sizes: 3’x5’, 4’x6’, and 5’x8’.
Outdoor Patriarch® Tough-Ply Poly Iowa Flag
Our newest flag fabric uses innovative Open Weave technology to make the flag more lightweight and allow the wind to pass through its polyester fibers. This reduces fabric strain and allows the flag to last longer. Additionally, Tough-Ply Poly’s unique fabric properties print the fine details of the Iowa state flag in stunning clarity. Those looking for an alternative to traditional polyester can purchase this flag in three sizes: 3’x5’, 4’x6’, and 5’x8’.

Brief History of the Iowa State Flag
According to Iowa history, Iowa was one of the last states to create an official state flag. Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) member, Dixie Cornell Gebhardt designed the flag in 1917. Her design, which is still in place today, features three vertical stripes of blue, white, and red, with a bald eagle holding a ribbon in its beak. The ribbon contains the state motto, "Our Liberties We Prize and Our Rights We Will Maintain."
Each design element of the flag symbolizes Iowa’s heritage and values. The design of the eagle and ribbon was lifted directly from the state seal. The blue stripe represents loyalty, justice, and truth. The white stripe symbolizes purity and desire for peace. The red stripe stands for courage and represents the sacrifice and valor of Iowans throughout history. The flag is reminiscent of France’s vertical tricolor, which flew over Iowa before it became a part of the US following the Louisiana Purchase.
The Iowa state flag symbolizes the state's history, values, and dedication of its people. To this day, Iowans across the state proudly fly their flag to represent their spirit and identity. Honor Iowa’s entry into the United States of America with a 32-state flag.
