It’s Flag Day.

Celebrate Flag Day today. Fly your flag and give it the care and respect that’s right.

Washing Your Flag.  Most outdoor flags are now made of polyester or nylon, meaning they are more durable than cotton and can be washed by hand (in the bathtub or washtub) or by machine, in warm water. They can be soaked and pre-treated, if needed. Older flags, which were typically made from cotton, are more prone to fading, degradation, tears and stains; specifically mildew and rust. It’s best to let flags air dry, regardless of the fabric content.

Drycleaning Your Flag. Ask us about drycleaning your flag. We can make repairs and remove stains like rust or mildew.

Respect the Flag. Since Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag in May of 1776 specific rules and conditions for displaying Old Glory have been established. For all the details, visit the National Flag Foundation.
