The American Flag—what's the best flag you can buy? We tried out several different flags and found there is quite a bit of difference. Some are designed for places with low winds. Others are more heavy duty, with embroidered stars. And what about an American flag that is actually made in the USA? Here are our best bets.

FYI: We are Baby Bargains—we've been rating and reviewing products for the family and home since 1994. We don't take money or freebies from the brands we review . . . and we are 100% reader supported! Thanks for reading this article.

Best Budget-Friendly

Best for indoors or light wind
We liked this lightweight, affordable flag with 2 brass grommets and double stitched edges. Bright colors, but it isn't designed for heavy wind.

Best Budget-Friendly American Flag: Anley Fly Breeze 3×5 Foot American US Flag

We loved this super affordable American Flag that is made from light weight polyester fabric. This is good choice if you want to display a flag indoors—or outside in light winds. Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Bright colors.

2 brass grommets and canvas header.

• Double stitching around edges to prevent fraying.

What Needs Work

• Fades quickly if outdoors. 

• Thin fabric won’t withstand high winds. Yes, this flag would be better indoors—or outside in areas with light wind.

• Not made in USA.

Best Flag Made in the USA

Embroidered stars
Loved this heavy duty flag, made in Florida. Stitched stripes and embroidery, 2 brass grommets. Simply impressive . . . and not made overseas.

Best American Flag Made in the USA: Grace Alley American Flag

It probably won’t shock you to learn that most American flags aren’t actually made in the USA. Like almost all things today, overseas makers dominate the American flag market.

That’s why we were excited to find the Grace Alley American Flag, made in Florida, USA. Yes, it isn’t as budget-friendly as imported flags, but hey—this flag supports an American company with American workers! And, as it turns out, the quality is quite impressive. Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Embroidered stars and stitched stripes. Unlike less expensive flags made of nylon, this flag is more substantial.

• Looks fantastic.

• 2 brass grommets.

• Great for outdoor use in moderate winds.

What’s Needs Work

• Can fray on ends after period of time. We didn’t have this issue in our testing, but we see reports from others. Then again, all flags start to fray after a while, depending on how windy an area is!

Best Heavy Duty Flag

UV protective coating
And now for something different—we like this large LED lighted American Flag with 10 foot cord. We wish the plug was waterproof, however.
$16.95

Best Heavy Duty American Flag: G128 American Flag

Less expensive nylon American flags are great for indoors, but what if you want a heavy-duty flag for outdoors? We liked G128’s American flag, which is both affordable and well made. Here’s more:

What We Liked

• Waterproof UV protective coating. This helps keep it from fading.

• 2 brass grommets. 

• Bright colors!

• Embroidered stars and stitched stripes. 

• 4 rows of stitching on the hem. That’s a good sign of quality.

What’s Needs Work

• Not made in USA.

• May not last long in harsh environments. We saw one user report that the flag began to fray after only a month when flown in high winds. Another person who used this on a boat said it lasted about a year before shredding. So that isn’t too bad . . . but this flag probably would do best in less hard outdoor conditions, such as areas with light or moderate wind.

Best Lighted American Flag

Stunning! Bright!
And now for something different—we like this large LED lighted American Flag with 10 foot cord. We wish the plug was waterproof, however.

Best Lighted American Flag: American Flag Lights

If you are looking for something different than a standard flag, we’d recommend this LED lighted American Flag by HYH. This impressive flag is six and half feet long by three and a quarter feet wide. It’s super bright. Here’s more on why we like it:

What We Liked

 Lightweight.

• LED lights don’t use much energy. 

• Affordable.

• 10 foot cord.

What Needs Work

• Care needed in handling. The wires holding the lights are thin and can break.

• Plug isn’t waterproof.
