Falkland Islands flag
The Falkland Islands flag has a blue background and the Union flag in the top-left corner. There is a coat of arms featuring a ram (symbolic of the sheep-raising industry of the islands). The ship on the coat of arms represents the Desire which is the ship that discovered the islands. The scroll below says “Desire the Right”, which is the motto of the Falkland Islands.
Knitted polyester – This is the most common flag fabric. Your flag will be digitally printed onto 115gsm quality knitted polyester.
Handsewn – Giving an extra touch of quality to your flagpole our handsewn flags are meticulously appliqued using 155gsm woven polyester by our team of seamstresses based in the UK. A handsewn flag is an investment so we would recommend adding anti-fray to help prolong the life of your flag. It provides extra protection to the hem to prevent fraying.
Eco-friendly flag – This revolutionary fabric is made from recycled plastic items such as PET bottles and industrial polyester waste which has been melted down into chips, then spun into yarn that is knitted to form a material. It has the same durability, strength and versatility of its knitted polyester equivalent but with a much lower environmental impact. We are the first UK supplier to offer an eco-friendly option rather than the standard polyester flags made from virgin plastic.
An anti-fray netting can be added to your knitted polyester or handsewn flag to help prolong the life of your flag. It provides extra protection to the hem to prevent fraying

What size flag should I purchase?
We’d recommend opting for a 2 yard flag if your flagpole is 6 metres tall or a 2.5 yard flag if it is 8 metres or taller.
Flags are finished with a rope and toggle so are ready to fly as soon as you receive them.
