Heavy Metal Base: If you are looking for something durable and ideal for indoor and outdoor use, then opt for our Heavy Metal Base. It has a flat square-shaped bottom that works perfectly for indoor and outdoor settings. It is also ideal for areas with strong winds as the iron base adds extra weight that keeps the flag in place. The base measures 400x400mm and weighs around 5 kg.
How are the teardrop beach flags finished?
Our teardrop flags are finished with a tunnel on the left side. You will also find an extra solid part on the top of the funnel. This prevents the flag from being damaged by the flagpole.
What materials are used to make the flagpoles?
We use aluminium and fibreglass to create the flagpoles. They come in high-quality digital print and offer 360-degree free rotation. The flagpoles are light in weight but strong and durable. The flagpoles are easy to carry, thanks to their modular construction. Fibreglass adds flexibility to the flagpoles that isn’t offered if only aluminium is used. It also adds strength and robustness.

Pull your flag as far as possible through the flag tunnel when setting up your tear drop flag. This will pull it tightly and will also prevent creasing and damage.
