High quality outdoor polyester Florida state flags. 2ply polyester state flags offer the greatest durability available. Our Florida flags are fully dyed for great outdoor performance. Four rows of stiching on the fly end make our Florida Flags durable in all conditions. Florida Flags are finished with a canvas header and two brass grommets. All our Florida Flags are proudly made in the USA. --- The red cross in the center of the Florida flag, added in 1899, was suggested by the Governor at that time, Francis Fleming, to make sure that the flag did not appear to be one of surrender or truce while it is being hung on a flagpole.
