🏴 3' x 5' Portland flag with grommets and double stitched edges to reduce fraying.
✍️ The Design: The Portland flag was designed in 1969 by a longtime Portland resident, noted graphic designer R. Douglas Lynch. The colors denote:
- Green - the forests and "our green city"
- Yellow - agriculture and commerce
- blue - "our rivers"
🧵 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.
🌏 Created and shipped in the most Earth-conscious way we can.
