The state of Maryland 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, and the coats of arms are printed using DuPont ink. The flag is treated to resist sun and chemical deterioration. The state of Maryland flag is printed single side reverse, which means it reads correctly on the front and reads in reverse on the back. However, the Maryland flag is the same in the front as it is in the back, so you would never notice.
