Outdoor Decorative Flags
Add Real Appeal

Porches were meant for outdoor decorative flags and banners.



Mary and I are partial to flying Old Glory in support of our country and troops. Many enjoy flying flags to support their favorite sports teams.

No matter the reason, flags and banners are a nice touch to porch decorating. Use them decoratively to welcome the seasons.

Outdoor decorative flags and banners are fun and colorful. They can be used quite well to decorate your porch and home. Flying the American flag on your porch is not only patriotic but beautiful as well.

Combining your country's flag with a military flag to support a loved one in the military is never out of season!

A porch, a beautiful flower garden, and Old Glory - a wonderful combination.





Garden flags are another all time favorite. You can use them to add a bit of whimsy to your front walkway or declare your passion along side your front steps.

Combine flags with other objects like wind chimes for a special effect. Add them to statuaries and other decorative items on and around your porch.

Change them out to celebrate the seasons or holidays or both! Outdoor decorative flags add instant color and appeal to any home.

Q: What do the football season and porches have in common?

A: Outdoor decorative flags and banners of your favorite teams. Colorful and dramatic, fly your team's flag to let others know who's the best!

Our neighborhood's porches are usually full of flags on game days, from local college teams on Saturdays and pro-teams on Sundays. Add your team colors to pillows and cushions, put a mascot on the steps, and you'll have a great weekend-decorated porch!

We used to live in Nebraska and Saturday was "red" day in support of the Nebraska Corn Huskers (originally known as the "Bug Eaters)! Not only was the stadium a "sea of red" so were the porches!

We found many of these flags at Plow & Hearthicon. They have a nice assortment of decorative and patriotic flags. You may just find the right flag for your porch.

Garden flags are also a great way to decorate. They are small rectangular flags that usually hang on garden flag stands meant for that purpose. We usually have one next to our porch and change it with the seasons. We incorporate garden flags as part of our porch landscaping.

My favorite garden flags



Try to find ones with the pattern on both sides so you can see it from any angle, especially on windy days. Find flags for the seasons, holidays, and those special occasions and you'll have a great decorating tool at your disposal any time of year.

Here's a great tip to keep those flags on the garden flag holder: Use a rubber washer at the end of the holder and the flag won't come off.

There's an outdoor decorative flag for every occasion, every holiday, every sports team, back to school flags, country flags, character flags, wildlife, religious, vehicle, military, flowers, fruit, folk art, and more.

And more line


U.S. Flag Flying Reminders: The U.S. flag it should never touch the ground, shrubs, bushes, or trees. Place in locations where it will not come in contact with foliage.

It must be lit if flown at night. Landscape spot lighting can work for this purpose; just ensure there is sufficient light to highlight the flat.

The U.S. Flag must always be positioned higher than any other adjacent flags (unless flown next to other nation's flags).
