After much searching, we’ve finally found a company that can supply an heirloom quality Union Jack to Anglotopia Imports. Each flag is hand sewn together IN England and is of tremendous quality. This company makes the flags that fly on government buildings in the UK. This picture and video below is of a sample they sent us. They’re beautiful. They will look great anywhere you display them and they’ll be an heirloom. The quality here is much better than a cheap typical nylon flag that are common. We wanted to offer something unique and truly special.
We can offer TWO SIZES:
90cm x 45cm in inches (Approx 3ft x 1.5 ft)
150cm x 90cm (5ft x 3ft)
The first one is about half the size of the larger 3×5 flag for comparison.
Make in Britain by Flagmakers, these flags are as ‘official’ as you get – they’re Britain’s oldest flagmaker. Their hand-sewn Union Flag has been their trademark flag since 1872, having been used at some of the most historically significant battles, events, and state funerals since that time.
Here’s a video overview of the quality (video is of the small version):
Each Union Flag is made from individual colored panels cut and sewn together to create the iconic Union Flag design. Their method of using hand-sewn materials has been – and continues to be – the highest quality way to manufacture a national flag. They use is 155gsm woven fabric, giving excellent durability and a look of quality. The flag is stitched with a double sewn hem, and comes with grommet holes to hang on any flagpole.
They’re manufactured at their Chesham-based flag factory. Each of their designs is approved by the governing body on flag design, the Flag Institute and their flags are also produced to the standard 2:1 design ratio, meaning they will match any other national flags flown side-by-side. They’ve been supplying the Royal Navy and other military branches for many years and pride themselves on the quality and heritage of their flags.
We’re are delighted to be able to import these and offer them for sale exclusively to American Anglophiles. Because of the cost to import these flags, we will be taking orders for ONE WEEK. Then we will place our order with Flagmakers. We expect to have them in about a month. Because of the cost involved in these heirlooms, we will likely NOT ORDER EXTRAS. So this is your one chance to get a beautiful quality Union Jack.
