Ordered this flag to be part of our site decor when we are traveling and camping in our 5th wheel camper. It is the perfect size and has held up very nicely against the elements. I have hand washed it in the sink twice and allowed to air dry without any problems like fading, shrinking, dye running, etc. We have received several compliments on this flag and I love that it's appropriate for every season. The colors are nice and vivid and the flag has a good, sturdy weight to it.
