🏴 3' x 4.5' Madison flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design:The flag of Madison, Wisconsin consists of a light blue background bisected from lower left to upper right by a white band, symbolizing Lake Mendota and Lake Monona and the isthmus between them. In the center of the flag is a black cross, which symbolizes the four lakes (Mendota, Monona, Wingra, and Waubesa , as well as the cross shape of the Wisconsin State Capitol. It originally had the zia symbol inside of the black cross but in 2018, that was removed out of respect for the Zia Pueblo and this became the updated flag of Madison.
🧵 Our flags are durable 200D polyester (most flags you'll find on the internet are cheap ~75D). In our testing, we selected 200D as the perfect flag material; anything heavier doesn't fly well and the "back" doesn't get enough ink, anything lighter feels cheap and wont last very long.
🏳️ Each flag is folded by hand on our dining room table and ready to be used on a flag pole, boat, hung on a wall, or to proudly march with.
🖨 ↩️ We print this flag as a one-sided print and make sure that the back has ample (around 90%) bleed-through. If you want a double-sided flag, contact us!
🌏 Created and shipped in the most Earth-conscious way we can.
Madison's 2018-revised city flag is a lovely design, but almost impossible to find for purchase. Other flag-makers seem to be waiting until all the dead stock of the pre-2018 flag is sold through before manufacturing the current city flag. Thankfully, Flags for Good stepped into the void to offer the updated flag. The material wears well outdoors, and the heavy one-sided printing works surprisingly well. Great color on both sides of the fabric.
