Alaska State Flag

Alaska State Flag

$18.00

The state of Alaska Flag is digitally printed on 200 denier SolarMax® nylon. The fabric is made for outdoor use with four rows of stitching on the fly end. The material of the flag starts as white, the blue background and gold stars are printed using DuPont ink. The flag is treated to resist sun and chemical deterioration. The state of Alaska flag is printed single side reverse, which means it reads correctly on the front and reads in reverse on the back. However, the Alaska flag has no text on it, so the stars are just on the opposite side on the back of the flag. Our flags are have canvas header material and brass grommets on 12″x18″ through 6’x10′. 8’x12′ and larger are finished with D Rings and either canvas webbing or rope and thimble. 4’x6′ and smaller are available with pole hem and/or fringe.

MADE in the USA
