When to Return a Flag for Repair
Typically the upper fly corner is first to incur wind damage. This is the area that whips most. We recommend returning your flag for repairs as soon as wind damage exceeds beyond the first top red stripe.
Our Typical American Flag Repair
The flag does have to be shortened. The outer fly side of the flag is cut back to strong material. The new edge is folded and re-sewn in a fashion similar to the original flag, typically at least four rows of reinforcement stitching. Large flags receive corner patches and six rows of high wind stitching.
You can expect one to two week turnaround time. This is dependent upon time of year, size of flag and amount of damage. You can call or e-mail our office for current approximate turnaround times.
Is It Proper to Repair an American Flag?
Yes, repairing and washing an American flag is not a violation of US Flag Code. Accepted practice allows the flag to be shortened until the overall fly dimension is at least twice the width of the star field (union). We would recommend replacing the flag before it gets that short but it is not uncommon to repair American flags at least once in order to extend the life.
