Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors
Founded in 1868, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors is a professional body that promotes and enforces global standards on behalf of more than 134,000 qualified and trainee professionals. Working at a cross-governmental level, the organisation delivers a single, international standard that will support a safe and vibrant marketplace in land, real estate, construction, and infrastructure, for the benefit of all.
Granted a royal title in 1947 by George VI, the RICS strives to affect positive change in both built and natural environments, and to innovate and progress the development of spaces and places so they are fit for future generations, in addition to the challenges faced in the present.
As a long-standing and respected organisation, the RICS take pride in the appearance and presentation of their London headquarters. At the front entrance of the building, they have 3 stunning wall-mounted flagpoles that display a variety of flags all year round.
Requiring a full service from manufacture to maintenance, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors were in search of a trusted supplier who could provide high-quality bespoke flags and offer robust and in-depth servicing to ensure the location is always looking its best.
Since 2014, Flagmakers has provided an all-inclusive flag and flagpole service for the RICS. We proudly print bespoke designs onto sturdy Decotex and create angled flags to display on three poles at the front of the building. We also carry out quarterly flag changes to ensure each product is kept in the most pristine condition possible.
Since 2016, the RICS celebrate LGBT Pride month by swapping out their centre branded flag for an LGBT Pride flag. Each June, Flagmakers efficiently check, change, and restore the custom-made flags as part of the commemoration. In June 2021, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors adapted their choice of Pride flag and elected to fly the 2018 Progress Design instead of the traditional 6 stripe rainbow.
In addition to our first-class flag change service, we also carry out regular flagpole services and maintenance checks, guaranteeing safety as well as a professional and premium impression for the headquarters.
