Re: South Pacific National flags

Buy them in each country.

Its far cheaper and you are supporting local businesses.

I did that in each country

Re: South Pacific National flags

We're leaving from Mexico to the South Pacific in the spring; I was pretty freaked out at ~$30USD per flag considering the amount of countries we're planning on hitting up. Came out to around $500.

I found these guys for $10USD a piece:

2x3' International Flags

Better price but very few options for the South Pacific. Always thought you had to fly a flag as you entered.

MAybe buy material and sew?

Re: South Pacific National flags

We bought 18" by 24" flags from the US Flag Company. They come on a stick that you can remove and try to find a use for. We thread some line through the sleeve where the stick goes. Flags are $2.50 or so each, cheaper if you get more than one. Each will last for 4 to 6 weeks in trade wind conditions - longer if you keep an eye out for wear and tear. They certainly cannot get all the countries, but you can jury rig. We bought some extra Red Ensigns and added modified them as needed. Hardest one to make was Cook Islands since we had to cut out so many white stars and sew them on. Ask your sailmaker for some ripstop scraps. You want red, green, white, dark blue, black, and yellow.

Not sure about the idea of buying them when you get there. We entered in a lot of places that did not have markets that would have flags. BTW, get one of the expensive, well-made French flags. You will use it. You don't fly the flag when you enter, but shortly after when you have cleared in. Make yourself a big Quarantine (yellow) flag to fly as you enter.

Re: South Pacific National flags

If you buy them in the country they are normally $2 or $3.


Helps the locals too.
