- Be sure flags are dry before storing them.
- Colors affixed to staffs should be carefully furled, placed in a
flag case or boot, or wrapped in plastic, then stored upright-preferably
in a cool, dry, dark place.
- Iron-on patches make rips and holes easy to repair. They can be bought
in fabric departments in colors and various materials to match the flag.
Follow the directions on the fabric package.
- Outdoor flags should be correctly folded and sealed in moisture- and
bugproof plastic bags. Store in a safe, cool, dry place.
