Are Your Flags Double-Sided? Do they read right on both sides?

This is a common flag question. 

If you've ever wondered whether our flags are double-sided and read correctly from both angles, you're not alone. It's a common inquiry, and we're here to provide clarity on the matter.

Rest assured, all our flags are meticulously crafted to display correctly. When we say "correctly," we mean that the imagery on the back of the flag is intentionally reversed. This is a natural characteristic of flags, as they inherently have distinct front and back sides. For instance, any text or design on the front of a flag will typically appear in reverse on the back.

Creating a truly double-sided flag that reads correctly on both sides is a rare feat. Achieving this would involve sewing two flags together in an unnatural back-to-back manner, which is not the standard practice.

However, we don't want you to simply take our word for it. In the image below, observe the Marine Corps flag. You'll notice that the letters on the back are reversed (take a look at the bottom of the image, specifically the word "Marine"). Meanwhile, the word "United" above it maintains the correct orientation, demonstrating the natural reverse display of flags. We want to assure you that the image is unaltered, ensuring transparency in our explanation.

At US Patriot Flags and US Patriot Colors, we take pride in delivering flags that not only embody your ideals but also adhere to the authentic design principles of flag-making. If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us. We're here to provide the information you need to make informed choices.


Thank you for considering us for your flag needs.

We'd not suggest to these gentlemen that their flag is anything short of correct.
