Compared to other types of custom-made flags, appliquéd flags are made using a unique process. The term “appliqué” is derived from the French verb “appliquer,” which literally means to “put on” or to “apply.” Appliquéd flags are produced by taking a fabric cutout of your design, then sewing it onto the flag itself.
For college recognitions, business events and other special occasions, our appliqued flags have been a favorite for years. Simply put, appliquéd decorative flags are a great, unique way to display your logo or mark a special event.
Carrot-Top’s Appliquéd Flags are tough 200 denier nylon and are available in standard sizes that include 2’ x 3’, 3’ x 5’, 4’ x 6’, 5’ x 8’, 6’ x 10’ and 8’ x 12’. The flags feature a canvas header and brass grommets at the hoist end (custom finishing available upon request), with two rows of stitching at the top and bottom and four rows of stitching at the fly end. Flags that are 8’ x 12’ or larger will have four rows of stitching on three sides, with six rows of stitching at the fly end (and may also have a seam running through the flag).
You can choose from single-reverse or double-sided construction; double-sided flags will read correctly on both sides. Double-sided flags feature two layers of nylon material and a liner between them to prevent the design from showing through. As a result, double-sided flags are more than twice as heavy and will require more wind to fly.

How Are Appliquéd Flags Made?
The process starts with your digital artwork in a vector format, which is then plotted onto paper. The paper cutout of your design is then positioned over the colored fabric of your choice, pinned into place and transferred as a stencil to show through the fabric below it.
The cloth pattern is then sewn onto the fabric; once completely sewn on, the loose edges of the pattern are cut off for a clean appearance and the flag is hemmed to your specifications and finished with a header and grommets or pole sleeve.
