Custom Hand Sewn Flags

Applique or ‘Hand Sewn’ is the original and most durable way of making a flag. If you are looking for a high-quality piece, with excellent levels of detail and a professional and prestigious finish to create the ultimate first impression, then a custom hand sewn flag is the perfect solution for you.

Flagmakers have been trusted to design and manufacture hand sewn flags for organisations of different shapes and sizes for many decades, ranging from some of the UK's most prestigious retail brands and hotels to small independent businesses. Take a look at a sample of our work and information below and contact our flag experts today to start your flag design.

Making a Custom Hand Sewn Flag

The process starts with a background of heavy grade woven polyester. This sturdy fabric forms the base of the applique flag and is suitable to be carried, hung, or installed in a range of places. The rest of the flag design is lovingly drawn onto the base, then each element is sewn by hand. The flag is put together like a mosaic by sewing different shapes and colours to create the finished artwork.

Custom Hand Sewn Flags are the ideal choice for small quantities or one-off pieces. They are suitable for a vast array of users and guarantee great value and a fantastic look and feel.

Applique flags are often used by:

  • Cathedrals, Churches, and places of worship
  • Tourist attractions including Castles, Museums, and Heritage Centres
  • High end retailers and hospitality
  • Sports Clubs, Societies, and Community Organisations.
