We offer both hand sewn & printed Union Flags, all made in our very own manufacturing facility, here in North Yorkshire, UK.
Our hand sewn Union Jack Flags are manufactured from our 155gsm Ministry of Defence approved woven polyester flag fabric, the highest quality fabric available for outdoor flag making. The 31 individual pieces of fabric are hand cut to MoD & Flag institute patterns and stitched together with a flat felled seam to create a strong and durable finished product. Any appliqué work is hand stitched onto the design of the flag in our 115gsm Ministry of Defence approved knitted polyester flag fabric. The appliquéd part may be printed depending on the complexity of the design, if you would like to be sure on this, please do not hesitate to call.
Our screen printed Union Flags are manufactured from approved 155gsm premium grade woven polyester flag fabric. For sizes 5 and 6 yard the printed flags are manufactured from 110gsm classic knitted polyester flag fabric and include a stitched fabric join. If you require these sizes in the premium woven fabric then please opt for the sewn flag version.
All our Union Jack Flags are hemmed on the three exposed sides with a strong double hem (triple hem on fly, on flags over 2.5 yards), fitted with our custom red, white & blue stitch polypropylene headband tape, rope & wooden toggle as standard. Other fittings are available on ordering.
I purchase this flag to go on a new flag pole in our new Memorial Garden. It is exactly the right size that I was looking for and finishes off the garden superbly. The service from Flying Colours was first class and the website made it very easy to choose the product that I was looking for..

An excellent, well-made product. Colours are fast and if flown correctly should last a goodly while.

As a former Army officer I can say this really is one of the most beautiful manifestations of the Union Jack you’re likely to behold
