Which finishing should I choose for my flags?

Last updated on

Flags can be finished in different ways and on different sides. Here we explain the possibilities.

Finished on the left or right side?

Depending on the direction of the wind, you can choose to have the finishing of your flag on the left or right side.

Why is the wind direction relevant?

99% of all our flags are printed on one side with a certain percentage (depending on the printing technique) of print-through. This means that the material is printed on one side, but the print is still highly visible in mirror image on the other side.

Now imagine that at a certain location the wind usually blows from the left, and that you place (beach) flags on a long driveway. In that case you want these flags to be finished on the left (wind direction to the right), so that visitors see the 100% print without a mirror image. Once they are at the end of the driveway and look back to the beginning of the driveway from there, they still see nicely printed (beach) flags, but with X% printing in mirror image.


Banner flags are finished with a tunnel at the top as standard. The top of the flag in this case gets an open seam, which makes it easy to slide over a pole. Unless otherwise specified, the tunnel is 6 cm flat or 3.8 cm in diameter.

Want a bigger/smaller tunnel? You can! Continue to configure your product and simply request a quote.


You have to be able to attach the flag to the flagpole. For this, you can choose from 3 types of fasteners: a loop and cord, clips, or D-rings. All these fixings are available in white and black. Clips and D-rings will be placed +- every 100 cm. Do you want more/less space between the clips/D-rings? No problem! Just continue configuring your product and request a quote.


It is possible to pack each flag separately in a plastic packaging. This is useful if you want to hand out or sell the flags, for example. Unfortunately, this option is less ecological and express delivery is not possible.


As a last option, we ask if we can sew our PrintSimple label (like a brand label in clothing) in the flag. If you choose this option, we will give a 5% discount on the flags as a thank you!
