The Murray River Flag Combined is to represent both the Upper and Lower Murray River flag. The four blue stripes represent the four major rivers that run into the Murray, the Murrumbidgee, the Lachlan and the Darling rivers. This design is influenced by earlier flags used in the Australian colonies including the National Colonial Flag (1823-24) and the NSW Merchant Flag of the 1830s. It combines the Union Jack with the Southern Cross featured on a red cross of St George and blue and white stripes, interpreted as the tributaries flowing into the Murray. It has been flying on the Murray River paddle steamers since 1853.
Fully sewn flags are made with poly woven fabric, which is also referred to as woven "bunting", they are appliquéd, using layers of fabric and custom stitching to make the artwork. Long-lasting, durable, as well as the most elegant and undoubtedly a keepsake item. These are made using the traditional methods of flag making.
Printed on a poly woven fabric similar to the fully sewn flags just a less denier for the ink to penetrate through the fabric, this makes them suitable for indoor and outdoor use, this is the most durable and traditional of the printed flags. These are either screen printed or digitally printed.
Digitally printed can be printed on a lightweight satin or a poly knitted fabric, a cost-effective option.
All flags are made in house in our workroom here is Sydney, and are finished with double stitched hems with UV stable header tape and UV stable recycled thread.
All flags unless specified otherwise are finished with sister clips, other finishes are available such as sleeves for poles, or loop and tail etc, if you require these please put the finish you would like in the notes when you view your cart.
