Be Georgia Proud! With this solid-steel flag we designed based on the State flag of Georgia based on a customer request! The picture on the brick was customer-supplied, which we appreciate. 🙂 The detail turned out fabulous! Tough enough to hand indoors or out. If you are in a different state, just let us know and we can custom make it, too.
If outside and unfinished, it will gain its own patina with exposure to the elements. Or, we can pre-rust if you like, seal it with a clear coat to preserve the color of the metal and protect from rust, or paint it the classic red and blue.
***Please note that steel in its natural state has blemishes in it. If you go with natural metal or a “Sealed” or “Clear” option, the blemishes will show. If you do not want to see them, we recommend flat black paint or any other color you choose. Of course, you can always paint it later yourself. 🙂 Also, note that the sealed option (which makes it a darker steel color) takes a full 24 hours to cure, so it adds one day to the ship time.
Does Thickness Matter? YES! But it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So, in this listing we use 1/8″ thick metal. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short)
If you have a really heavy plant that you are concerned about, or you want it really durable, we make this out of 1/4″ steel, which is twice as thick as our 1/8″ (five times thicker than 18 gauge). It would be thicker than two quarters and two dimes, all four stacked on top of each other, and is called 3 gauge!!!
