Fire retardant treatment for flags – Red Dragon Flagmakers
Choose one of the options as the finish to your flag. Canvas header, cored rope and ash wood toggle are supplied as standard. We only supply durable UK manufactured CORED polypropelene white rope (measuring between 40mm and 70mm proportionate to the dimensions of the flag overall). Metal eyelets tend to weaken the canvas so instead we stitch buttonhole eyelets to the top and bottom of the canvas left facing. If you require a flag finish not listed, please email us on and we'll do our best to accommodate you.

Is your flag fire safe?  

Its becoming the norm that if you want to fly the flag for your favourite team or shout out to mum at matched and concerts, your flag must be treated and labelled as fire retardant - or you'll not be able to take it into the venue with you. 

Send us your flag for treatment
