Nylon vs Polyester
Our Nylon flags are crafted using aniline-dyed, 100% heavyweight, 200-denier nylon bunting. Nylon material is fast drying, treated to resist fading, and flies in the slightest breeze. Finished with white poly-cotton header.
Our Poly-Max Flags are crafted using 2-ply 100% polyester bunting. The open weave construction reduces wind resistance, increasing flag life. Poly-Max material is extremely durable and ideal for commercial applications and high wind areas. Finished with white poly-cotton header.
About the Arizona State Flag
Like many other state flags, the Arizona state flag has a very symbolic meaning. In particular, the Arizona flag draws from its rich history as a Spanish colony. As early as the 1700s, records indicate that the Spanish began settling in present-day Arizona to farm, raise cattle, and mine for minerals.
The remainder of the 18th century saw several quarrelsome incidents which broke out periodically between different ethnic and religious groups, including the Jesuits and Spanish settlers. Eventually, the land was annexed to the United States in 1848.
Following this period, Arizona officially became a state in February 1912. In fact, Arizona was the 48th state to achieve statehood in the United States – the last of the contiguous states to do so.
Arizona’s state flag is highly symbolic, as many of the other state flags are. Arizona’s flag uses 13 stripes or rays of red and yellow to represent the beautiful landscape that people living in Arizona have the pleasure of enjoying. In the center of the flag, a star is featured and represents the large production of copper. More than any other state in fact.
