Sewn White Ensign
White Ensign fully sewn using very durable flag bunting fabric
Our fully sewn woven MOD approved flag fabric White Ensigns are manufactured using British Ministry of Defence MOD approved high quality flag making material. Manufactured in the UK, 155 g/sqm woven polyester is the most durable flag fabric on the market today, hand sewn in the UK by experienced seamstresses . Apart from its outstanding durability, woven flag polyester has a pleasant natural feel and non-shiny cotton/wool like look.
All stitched White Ensign flags are fitted with heavy duty reinforced cotton header and by default are supplied with traditional British rope & toggle fixing.
The White Ensign Flag and its history
In 1864, the Admiralty ruled that the White Ensign flag – flown by all serving Royal Navy warships, ship’s boats, Royal Marines craft, naval bases and establishments at home and overseas – would become the Service’s only standard, marking it apart from the merchant fleet.
Since then, the White Ensign has become the iconic symbol of British seapower – and has spawned similar naval flags, particularly in Commonwealth countries.
Our White Navy Ensign flag is fully sewn and comes with traditional rope and toggle flag fixing.
Anti-Fray is optional and is sewn onto the opposite end of the reinforced flag fixing side and the mesh takes the wear out of the flag allowing flags to last longer with more durability.
