Whatever the name, the purpose is the same: to amp up the crowd by parading your team logo around on a huge flag.
In our 125+ years of flag making experience, we have heard this type of custom flag referred to by any of the following terms:
- Cheer or Cheerleading Flags
- Captain's Flags
- Spirit Flags
- Battle Flags
- Letter Flags
Oldest and largest maker of spirit battle flags in the U.S.A.
We have been making custom cheerleading flags since 1892. You can see our work at pregame and in-game festivities at sporting events across the country, including football and basketball from the high school through professional levels.
Our custom flags are constructed using the applique process, our unique hand-crafted specialty. It's easily distinguished from flimsy screened or digitally printed flags and banners, and in turn distinguishes your program.
Cheerleading, Spirit, and Battle Flags are usually one of two types: a larger flag with the team logo or mascot, and a series of smaller flags that spell out the team or school name.
