Although they’re sometimes considered outdated, there’s a lot to be said for the effectiveness of car flags – you know how the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. In fact, they’re a fantastic promotional tool for car clubs, sales forecourts, delivery services, and team supporters (to name a few).
If you’re wondering whether you should add car flags to your promotional repertoire, here are five great reasons to include them:

1. Multipurpose Exposure
One of the best things about car flags is that they can be used in a wide range of applications – basically, anywhere there’s a car! They can be used on new or used vehicles parked in the forecourt to advertise the dealership, on a vehicle that’s being given away as a prize, on delivery service vehicles to make them more obvious, by car clubs on meet days, and even by supporters of a sporting team during training or game days.
Keep in mind that everywhere the vehicle goes, from cruising down the highway or stopping for fuel, the flag will be visible.
2. Customize However You Like
Although car flags come in standard sizes, the opportunities are endless when it comes to customization. Choose a single reverse print, whereby the ink fully dyes the material (so the design will be visible on both the front and the back). The image on the back will be a reverse of that on the front. Or choose a double-sided print, whereby two pieces of fabric are printed on and sewn together with a blockout layer in between.
The artwork is completely up to you – design your own, download a template, or have a professional graphic designer create something for you.
3. Located Close to Eye Level
One of the main problems with other types of signage is that it ends up getting lost in the crowd. Depending on the type of vehicle, the roof is at or below eye level for most adults. This means that any car flags you add will also be around eye level, ensuring they’re directly within the line of sight of anyone passing by. It’s far easier to catch someone’s attention when they don’t have to tilt their head up or down to get a better look.
Although ‘eye level’ will differ from person to person, use a rough estimate of the typical height of your audience.
4. Withstands Most Weathering
As car flags are designed to be used on vehicles, you can rest assured that they’ll be able to without almost any kind of weather condition. Whether you’re experiencing the sun, rain, wind, frost, or even snow, the use of UV-protected nylon and durable double-needle lockstitch sewing minimizes the impact of unavoidable environmental factors. Most people find that their flag lasts as long as 6 months!
The pole prevents the flag from becoming twisted or tangled and ensures that it remains clipped in place on the window.
5. Easy to Assemble
Another great thing about car flags is that they’re incredibly easy to assemble – in fact, they arrive already put together! All you need to do is wind down your window, slide the groove onto the top of the glass, and roll the window back up to secure the flag in place. Just remember not to wind the window down, otherwise, you’ll risk losing the flag. It might sound obvious but it’s easy to forget (don’t worry, we’ve all done it).
Whilst they can be left in place when driving, car flags are also easily removable – great in times of inclement weather, ensuring they’ll last longer!
