United Nations Flag
All of our printed United Nations flags are produced by a process called Dye Sublimation. The system drenches each fibre of the fabric, resulting in a flag with wonderful precise colour, and vitally the design appears perfectly on each side. This is known as ‘printed through to reverse’ and is an important consideration when choosing your flag as both sides will be seen when flying.
Our flags are manufactured to the highest standards. We offer flags in a choice of two materials, Hand Made National Flags, and Digitally Printed National Flags

|Adopted||7th December 1946|
|Design||A sky blue field with a white version of the UN emblem.|
The first Unofficial flag of the United Nations was adopted during wartime in 1943; it is made up of seven alternating red and white horizontal lines.
The first official Flag of the United Nations was adopted in 1945 and it featured a grey blue background with laurels and a map that focuses on the North Pole and the united states. This was a temporary design for the United Nations Conference in San Francisco.
In 1946 the colour was changed to a sky blue and the map was edited to remove the focus on specific countries. The flag is also used to protect people on peacekeeping missions during conflicts.
