U.S. Flag Store's Embroidered Nylon 8' x 12' American Flags are made in the USA. Featuring densely embroidered stars and stitched stripes, these are traditional, quality American flags - they are not cheap imports or printed flags! These flags are made with 200 denier nylon which is both lightweight and exceptionally tough. Since nylon flags are lightweight, they fly in gentle breezes, and are recommend for flying in parts of America with low wind and year round sun. If you live in an area with high wind and extreme weather conditions, U.S. Flag Store recommends flying a Polyester American Flag.
