Location matters

Choosing an apt location will give the feather flags the much-needed exposure to gather attention. Make sure to notice whether they would be exposed to dust or the UV rays of the sun while choosing the right spot. Both of these elements cause harm to the durability of the flags, making them wear away way more sooner than expected. If possible, try to place them in a shady and lesser air polluted area.

Proper maintenance

The climatic conditions determine the longevity of the flags to a great extent. In general, a feather flag will last a maximum of two years and a minimum of six months. However, it also depends on their maintenance. They will need minimum maintenance if you have chosen a lesser polluted space or have placed them in a shady place. But if you intend to keep them for a longer period or under the sun or in a dusty area, you will have to arrange for their proper maintenance (like washing them or trimming the frayed edges, and hemming them again).

Disassemble the flags during extreme weather conditions

Heavy rain or extreme wind can cause potential damage to these flags. Rain increases their weight, and thus the poles have to bear more strain than they can. You can avoid such damage if you arrange to take them down during such extreme weather conditions. Make sure that the flags are completely dry before you decide to put them up again. Else they will attract mold.

Give them some space

Flags need some space to flutter. So, while placing them, keep the required space in the surrounding place. Check whether they have a chance of getting caught on a fence or are brushing against a tree. Such things can lead to the tearing of the flags.

Correct installation 

Feather flags are easy to assemble, and you can do it on your own without any extra help. But see to it that you perform the task well. The longevity of these flags depends much on how you have installed them.


Following these tips will help you to get the most out of your investment. You will be able to use them several times for promoting your business without having to spend every time you decide to do so.
