A double sided flag is two flags screen printed or digitally printed and then sewn together – making a three layered flag. The flag has a middle liner between the two flags stopping the see-through.
A (double sided) flag will have both sides (front and back) reading correct.
This type of flag is more expensive than the single sided as more colour and material is used. .
The weight of a double sided flag will be twice as heavy as a single sided flag and will require much more wind to move it.
A Three layered flag is not as common as a single sided flag and therefore is not as cost effective.
When deciding on the type of flag required (single sided) or (double sided) consider the use of the flag and allocated budget – remember a double sided flag will always be more expensive and heavier than a single sided flag and will not fly as well.
The lifetime of the single sided flag will depend on the material used and the weather conditions to which the flag is exposed. Due to the lightness of the fabric the flag will ‘flap’ more and suffer wear and tear quicker than a double sided flag.
