I have done various posts over the last 6 years on nautical weddings and receptions. Nautical is a popular theme for weddings. We have sold many banners over the years for couples that want to decorate with a nautical theme. If you are having a beach or outdoor wedding you could hang a signal flag banner that spell out both your first names or the last name. Also if you are getting married on a boat or yacht our signal flags could hang for decoration. The banner below is hung on a gazebo and spells ERIN AND VIN.
The next banner spells KERRY ♥ BRIAN
Although Hearts are not traditionally part of the signal flag family they do add a nice touch. If you have lots or room to hang it could be 1 long banner or as shown below made into 3 banners as shown below.
Lastly a gazebo showcases both our Vertical and Horizontal Banners
Top Horizontal Banner spells; ALWAYS
Left Vertical Banner spells: HAVE
Right Vertical Banner spells: HOLD
We can spell anything that you want and custom make a banner for your special day. A keepsake for years to come. Visit our website for more ideas.
I am always showing various pictures of our fabric signal flags which are based on the US Navy. I thought I would include a picture that includes the Letter-Name-Meaning of each one. The US Navy site has a full picture
I love the idea that you can transform a room from ordinary to nautical with a curtain rod and signal flags. When we make the signal flags we make a wider casing so as to slide onto a standard 3/4″ (or less) curtain rod. With a 1/2″ space between each flag, you can typically hang 5 flags on a 44″ rod, or 9 flags on a 76″ rod. If you use a round, dowel- or tube-type rod, it must be 1/2″ or less in diameter. These types of rods also come in varying lengths. We can customize your casings, if you really need something with a wider rod sleeve, but the existing dimensions have a nice, proportionate look. Casings could go as wide as 2″ or more, if needed, just let us know.
The picture below shows some names as a example on curtain rods.
The next picture shows how you could put the signal flag in the middle of a bay window. You could then hang nautical theme curtains on each side of it.
Lastly if you have a long window that has a center support for the curtain rod this close-up of our flags show how you can arrange it.
The center support is between the N and the T.
All flags are hand-crafted by us and use a high quality cotton.
