At Redblock we have a large variety of flag and banner flag printing options available to elevate your advertising or branding to the next level.

All our flags are manufactured to withstand all outdoor elements, and can also be utilised indoors. All our flags are printed digitally, with screen printing or sublimation โ€“ depending on your preference and the order specifications.

Redblock manufactures the following types of flags:

  • Country flags
  • Corporate flags
  • Desk flags
  • Handheld flags
  • Bunting flags (flags on string)
  • Banner flags – also known as Telescopic flags, Shark-Fin flags, Windcheater flags and Extreme flags etc.

We also provide flag accessories such as flag poles, indoor base units etc.


Available in standard sizes of:

  • 2700 x 1800mm
  • 1800 x 1200mm
  • 900 x 600mm

Not only do we supply the most popular country flags, we can also supply flags from any country in almost any dimension imaginable, complete with rope and toggles.

The less common sized flags take longer to manufacture and are slightly more expensive than standard sizes because they must be custom made. The most common of the standard sizes is 1.8 x 1.2m.


All flags available on our website can be customized according to your requirements. All additional artwork will be charged in cases where designs are not submitted in print-ready format. If you need information on artwork specifications, please click HERE.


Desktop flags are available with wood base stands or the more cost-effective PVC base stands. Common materials for desk flags are either Nylon or PVC and the standard size for desk flags are size A5, although custom sizes are available on request. As in the case with most promotional gifts and corporate wear we require a minimum order to the value of R1500 excluding VAT, for desktop flag orders. Depending on your choice of flag base stand, the minimum quantity is usually around 40 flags.


These flags are known by a variety of different names including: Waving Flags, Extreme Flags, Shark-Fin Banners or Teardrop Banners. Flags are appealing to different markets and people in different situations as they are perfect for schools, ceremonies, sport matches, pop-up shops, and motor sales yards or simply outside any building. Designs and branding can be used to provide an effective representation of the brand identity or to draw a particular type of customer as they are also very effective in announcing the presence of a particular promotion or brand. These flags range in sizes from 2-6m. All extreme flags come standard with hardware that includes the rods, carry bag, print, and outdoor spike. Indoor base units are available for these flags, but not included in the standard package.

Screen printing vs Sublimation printing

Sublimation is a digital method of printing which is cost-effective on low quantities or on full-colour prints. The process starts by printing the flag in reverse on a transfer paper and then heat pressing it into a sublimatable substrate which is a high polyester blend fabric โ€“ it works very similar to temporary tattoos, just without water, and instead with heat. Sublimation Flag Printing is a trusted method of printing flags and will be suitable for outdoor use, however, it will never last quite as long as screen printing on flags would.

Screen printing is a manual method and the longest-lasting printing method for flags. It is done by making a screen for every colour required in your design and thus not cost-effective on low quantities of printing. It cannot be used to achieve โ€œfadesโ€ or โ€œcolour blendsโ€ in designs, because the screens do not allow for this.
