  • What is a standard flag size?
    For the Canadian flag the most common size is 36'X72'. The proportion for the Canadian flag is always 2 to 1. Almost all of our flags are made in Canada and are 2:1 in proportion.
  • How long will a flag last?
    There is no definite answer to how long a flag will last. The life of a flag depends on weather, location, contamination and how often you fly your flag. Your flag is a piece of cloth that spins, flaps, bakes and freezes. It is not uncommon that in certain conditions flags need replacing 3 times per year. Your flag can be repaired if slightly frayed or torn. A-1 Flags offers repair services.
  • How much Maintenance do flagpoles need?
    Little or no maintenance is necessary for aluminum poles. Steel poles will usually require resurfacing in 2-6 years depending on the finish used and the area in which the pole is located. Stainless Steel requires little or no maintenance to maintain its appearance. Halyard and external hardware should be checked every few months for wear and tear.
  • How do I clean a flag? Can it be ironed?
    Flags can be hand washed in a mild detergent. You can iron flags at the lowest heat setting or steam to remove wrinkles. Spread out the flag until dry. Do not store your flag wet or damp.
  • How Do I dispose of my Flag?
    When a flag becomes tattered and is no longer in suitable condition for use, it should be destroyed in a dignified way by burning it privately. A-1 Flags will dispose of all your old flags in a dignified manner.
