You can also order the superior quality Double Sided flag. What is the advantage? With the single digital print flag, one side is a clear vibrant image, with the crest and all the parish text readable correctly, where the rear would then be a mirror image with everything reversed. With a Double Sided flag, Both sides of the flag are printed identical so everthing is the correct aspect with text readable and image the right perspective. A center black sheet is stitched together with both sides of the flag print so sunlight cannot interfere with the image overlaying onto the other, and the quality of the flag is much more hard wearing and heavier material.
