The EMS flag is designed for long term outdoor use in areas with average wind speeds and can also withstand wet weather. These flags are built using 200 denier nylon, a light weight and versatile flag fabric that is water resistant and has proven itself in permanent outdoor flag displays. Our EMS flag is complete with a canvas header and brass grommets in order for the flag to be attached to an outdoor flagpole and flagpole rope. The flags feature a single reverse finish, the flag reads correctly on one side and the reverse on the other.
The EMS flag comprises of a star of life in the center of a blue background with the words Emergency Medical Services encircling the star. The star of life consists of six bars that converge to make a 6 pointed star. The bars represent detection, reporting, response, on scene care, care in transit and transfer to definitive care. In the center of the star is a staff with a serpent coiled around it with its head towards the top of the staff. The staff is a symbol taken from Greek mythology and is said to be the staff of Asclepius the Greek god of Medicine.
