Why buy a Cotton G-Spec Flag vs. a Nylon?
The government specified American flag is available in both industrial strength nylon and 2-ply mercerized cotton. Both flags feature lock-stitched seams that are guaranteed to resist fraying and color matched thread ensuring vibrant colors.
Cotton G-Spec American Flags Feature:
- 2-ply Mercerized Cotton with a polyester core which makes the fabric stronger than traditional cotton. Mercerized cotton provides a more lustrous finish to the material, and resists water better than traditional cotton. The flags feature individually embroidered stars and sewn stripes with fray resistant stitching on the fly end, a reinforced header and brass grommets
- Not intended for outdoor use, except as a single day display, as cotton may bleed if it gets wet!
- Honor loved ones with an official interment flag; our Government Specified Cotton 5' x 9' 6" flag features full size 3" stars. This size and material type is the standard flag issued by government agencies.
Nylon G-Spec American Flag (Ideal for Outdoor Use):
- Government specified nylon American flags are perfect for outdoor use. The nylon flags are extremely durable and hold up well in all-weather situations.
- These U.S flags are also designed to be extremely light weight and will fly proudly with the lightest breeze.
- The nylon flags feature embroidered stars that stand proud on a blue plane, sewn stripes and fray resistant stitching on the fly end with a reinforced header and brass grommets
