The size of the guard flag in relation to the pole size used is important to consider. This keeps your flags looking proportional on the field or floor. Band Shoppe offers several standard flag sizes to fit your performance.
5' pole - 30" x 46"
5½' pole - 33" x 50"
6' pole - 36" x 54"
7' pole - 42" x 60"
The number on the left is the header length (sleeve) and the number on the right measures the width of the flag to its furthest point out, including 3" for the width of the header. Designs will be scaled to these measurements unless otherwise specified.
Larger color guard flags provide a visual impact or a "WOW" factor. Smaller flags are great for maneuverability when performing spins and tosses. For custom flags, any size dimension can be utilized. All flag sizes are approximate and may slightly vary.
Band Shoppe offers tried and true flag shapes including Arc, Rectangle, Slant, Teardrop, Curve, Arc Curve, Shield, Pennant, and Triangle. Choose one of the standard shapes or create one of your own! We can build a custom color guard flag to fit any show or budget.
Band Shoppe offers two different options of fasteners for all color guard flags. As an industry standard, the hook and loop technique allows easy on and off. We sew the soft side (loop side) into the headers of every flag. The hook side is shipped with poles or hook side strips can be purchased separately. Hook and loop is the default fastener that is applied to all Band Shoppe In Stock flags.
Tab Fasteners can be applied and are a per request option on custom flags. The tab is sewn into the header of the flag and the tab is taped to the pole. This method of securing the flag is a personal preference to the user.
