Why Choose an Outdoor Flag?

We offer the most competitive and easy-to-buy promotional flags on the market. Our extensive range comprises of something suitable for every brand and every budget, so why not find out more about what our printed flags can do for your brand? 

Why Choose a Promotional Flag?

Offering maximum brand impact at outdoor events and exhibitions, our flag range is versatile and functional and can be used at indoor events, too.

Whether it's a trade show, sporting event, festival, country fair or a forecourt advertising solution - printed flags are a cost-effective way to raise your brand awareness in high footfall areas.

Simple 3-Step Ordering Process

Our simple 3-step ordering process alleviates the stress of choosing which event flag and base is right for your budget.

Committed to delivering a cost-effective display solution for every customer, we supply our promotional flags with a choice of eight bases for one price. This means you don't have to worry about paying extra for a suitable base.

Simply choose your flag shape, size and base, and we will do the rest - it really is that simple.

We even include a free carry bag and a free artwork checking service with every outdoor flag order to ensure maximum quality and no hidden charges.

Types of Outdoor Flags

Our flag range includes Feather flagsTeardrop flags and Sail flags. Feather and teardrop flag shapes are available in four sizes – small, medium, large and extra-large. Sail flags are available in a choice of three sizes: small, medium and large.

We also offer flag and pole only options with the option to purchase your base separately. This allows our customers to tailor their event flag kit to their exact event needs.

Single and double-sided graphics are available. The double-sided graphics are manufactured using two pieces of 115gsm flag knit material which are stitched together with a liner to prevent show-through from the other side.

Range of Bases

Flag Base Options

We offer a wide range of outdoor flag bases which are suitable for all types of terrain.

Our best-selling flag base is the large water base. The 30L hollow base features a rugged design which is suitable for use with any size and shape flag. It can be used on any surface and, once weighted down, the flags can withstand wind speeds up to 18mph.

The small water base has an internal capacity of 26 litres which can be filled with water or sand. This water base is for use with the small and medium event flags only.

Our drive on car foot is a popular choice for car showrooms and forecourts as it provides high-level branding without imposing too much on available floor space.

Other base options include a square base which is available in two sizes, a plastic ground stake and a sand snow ground spike.


Our promotional flags are printed onto high-quality 115gsm flag knit material using the latest dye-sublimation printing process.

This printing process results in exceptional detail designed to promote your brand to the highest standard.

The artwork is printed directly into the weave of the fabric, ensuring long-lasting, more vibrant artwork that won’t crack, peel or fade after use.

Our promotional flags can be machine washed to ensure they are kept in pristine condition after every use. See our guide for help on how to care for your promotional flag.

The quality all-fibre black pole is lightweight and flexible yet strong and durable to ensure maximum versatility in windy conditions.


Lightweight and highly portable, our custom printed flag kits come complete with a free carry bag to ensure safe and easy transportation.

The specially designed carry bag features separate compartments for storing your flag pole and printed graphic. It also has an extendable shoulder handle so you can comfortably carry your promotional flag through the event venue to your pitch.


Our flags are supplied in multiple sections with a simple, tool-free assembly. Each section of the pole simply push-fits on to the next and the printed flag graphic slides over the pole and hooks into place at the bottom of the pole using an elasticated toggle.

Fast Turnaround

We pride ourselves on being able to deliver high-quality products at competitive prices with a fast turnaround - without compromising on customer service.

We dispatch promotional flags within 72 hours upon receipt of print-ready artwork.
