My team is (finally) going to make a flag this year.
Anybody who has a flag:
Did you make it your self or was it made professionally?
what is it made out of (felt, fabric, ect.)?
Hob big did you make it?
How big is the stick holding it? Type of material for the stick?
Speaking as someone who has had to carry those flags on the field here’s some pointers.
Make it festive, but keep it on the light side. Generally a rule of thumb, we’d prefer to only have to use 1 hand to carry it. (See Wildstang’s flag and Robotic Plague’s flag for examples of huge flags)
Other than that, make it reflect your team, so when it’s waved people will recognize it.
I would also recommend keeping the flag pole to one section. We tried multiple or expanding sections in the past. This never seemed to work well as we either left sections at home or it broke. Honestly though if your flag needs more then one section its too big.
