All of our bowhead flags are finished with a tunnel on the left side. We also provide an extra solid part on the top of the funnel which prevents the flag from any damage from the flag pole.
Which materials do you use to make flagpoles?
Our flagpoles are made from fibreglass or aluminium. They are finished with high-quality digital print in full colour. The flagpoles are lightweight but strong and durable and offer 360-degree free rotation. The flagpoles are easy to carry, thanks to their modular pole construction. Fibreglass adds strength and robustness to the flagpole which is not possible if only aluminium is used.
Why do standard bowhead flags come with a black flag tunnel?
Our standard feather flags have a black flag tunnel as the flagpole they come with is also black.
