Outdoor Decorative Flags
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.

Combining your country's flag with a military flag to support a loved one in the military is also always in season.
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.

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.
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).
