How Long Should My American Flag Last?
Your American flag will eventually tear and fade. Therefore, there is no exact or definite answer for this question.
The U.S. Government usually expects a flag to last 90 days based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset – but not during periods of inclement weather. Flags that are subject to flight 24 hours a day will have a shorter life than those flown only during daylight hours. Factors that limit the life of your flag are wind, rain, sun and airborne contaminates such as pollutants, smoke and dirt. Remembering to take your flag down in inclement weather will help in lengthening the life of your flag.
How to properly care for your American Flag.
Outdoor flags can be hand-washed with warm water and a mild soap. Thoroughly rinse and remove from water immediately and spread out to dry to prevent mildew.
