When we separately reviewed American flags, one of the best quality flags we found in our testing was made by Grace Alley.
If you live in an area with high winds (we are looking at you, Florida), we’d strongly suggest a more robust flag. This one is made of what the maker calls Durawavez nylon—basically a heavier weight fabric that stands up better to wind.
Grace Alley finishes the flag with a polyester header and four-point needle fly hem. Translation: this one can take the weather.
And, yes, the flag is made in the USA. (The pole and mount are imported from China, however).
What We Liked
• Embroidered stars and stitched stripes. Unlike less expensive flags made of lightweight polyester, this flag is more substantial.
• Looks fantastic.
• 2 brass grommets.
• Great for outdoor use in windy areas.
• Tangle-free design of the pole lets the flag spin in winds.
What Needs Work
• Can fray on ends after extended period of time. We didn’t have this issue in our testing, but we see reports from others that this can happen. We suppose it depends on the amount of wind you get—unfortunately, no flag can last forever!
