Black for mourning
An alternative mark of mourning, used when putting a flag at half mast is unsuitable, is to add a black cravat or ribbon to the top of the flag, at the hoist.
We make both to order.
A ribbon is made of MOD spec woven polyester (black) in two metre lengths and should be tied off against the toggle before the flag is hoisted.
A mourning cravat is the 3m of the same MOD spec woven polyester ribbon supplied as a bow to tie of against the toggle and hoisted in the same manner.
