    is there any damage to it - ie rips/tears/ frays?

    Sorry I missed answering this before Memorial Day

    Most Nylon and Polyester Flags can be machine washed with a mild detergent and hung to dry. Don't dry it in the machine. Cotton Flags can be washed in COLD water and lain flat to dry. Cotton will shrink if washed or dried HOT!
