PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS
Puerto Rico outdoor flags
are USA made of nylon flag material and are finished with a canvas heading and two brass grommets on the hoist side, 2 rows of stitching top and bottom sides and 4 rows of stitching on the fly side. They are attached to the flagpole by means of a halyard (rope) and flag snaps, or to smaller poles with flag fasteners. Standard sizes for outdoor state and territory flags are 2x3 ft, 3x5 ft, 4x6 ft, 5x8 ft. and 6x10 ft.

Extra large outdoor nylon Puerto Rico flags are offered in 8x12 ft and 10x15 ft. Production process includes a #10 white nylon rope is sewn into the 2” cotton polyester blend header. Galvanized metal thimble ends are crimped to the rope ends for attachment to the flag snaps. An additional brass grommet is placed midway on the heading for use with a third flag snap for durability and stability on the halyard.

Extreme wear outdoor state flags are produced using open weave 2-ply woven polyester, the longest wearing flag material available for daily, long-term display. This open weave material reduces fabric stress and outside fly-end shredding in high wind applications, allowing for up to double the wear of traditional nylon flags.

FLAG DESCRIPTION

Year Adopted: 1952. The flag was originally created in 1895 during a time of advocacy for Puerto Rican and Cuban independence from Spain. Note the similarity with the flag of Cuba.

The flag of Puerto Rico has five equal horizontal bands of red (top and bottom) alternating with white. A blue isosceles triangle based on the hoist side bears a large, white, five-pointed star in the center.  The white star symbolizes Puerto Rico; the three sides of the triangle signify the executive, legislative and judicial parts of the government. Blue stands for the sky and the coastal waters. Red symbolizes the blood shed by warriors, while white represents liberty, victory, and peace. (ref: CIA World Factbook, Jan. 2014)

Puerto Rico flag colors (colores de Bandera de Puerto Rico): The government of Puerto Rico specifies the flag colors to be used but, does not specify official tones or shades. It is not uncommon to see the flag of Puerto Rico with different shades of blue displayed on the island. USA made printed flags are typically produced using the blue in the USA flag (Blue PMS 2768). Flags are available on a made to order basis, by quote with a lighter tone "light blue" "French Blue" (PMS 285), or "sky blue" Royal Blue PMS 286. See below. Please specify flag size & quantity.
