NYLON

Yet, is a nylon or polyester flag better?

A polyester flag surface can be duller and rougher to the touch. And since polyester is heavier than nylon, it takes a considerably strong breeze to fly properly. Nylon flags are more suited for indoor usage while 2-ply polyester flags are perfect for the outdoors.

Even, which is better cotton or nylon flag? Cotton is natural, soft, and shows rich true colors. Cotton works well for traditional ceremony, indoor display. It is not as durable in wet conditions as nylon and poly. Nylon is strong, flies well, fade resistant, and resists mildew.

On another note, what kind of flag lasts longest?

The nylon flags are our most popular flag fabric for US Flags. The American flag material is a dense 200 Denier nylon weave fabric that is the longest lasting nylon material available.
