Outdoor Decorative Flags
Add Real Appeal

Porches were meant for outdoor decorative flags and banners to honor the seasons, show our patriotism, celebrate the holidays and cheer on our favorite teams.



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, outdoor flags and banners are a nice touch in your porch decorating. Use them decoratively to welcome the seasons.

Flying the American flag on your porch is not only patriotic but beautiful as well. Outdoor decorative flags and banners are fun and colorful - an easy way to decorate your porch and home.

Garden Flags of All Sorts

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.

American and Navy flags with buntings on porch 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.

Garden flags are a fun way to decorate. You know - those small rectangular flags that are often seen in gardens.

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.

Outdoor Decorative Flags Tip

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.

U.S. Flag Flying Reminders: The U.S. flag 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).
