This 3' x 5' Polyester Flag is made from a light-weight but durable polyester with an open weave that reduces fabric stress and resists high winds. It is double-stitched all the way around and features brass grommets for hanging, attached to the flag with a reinforced header cloth for extra durability. The polyester fabric looks like a coarse cotton, resists fraying and is designed for indoor or outdoor use. This features a single-sided print in bright, vivid colors. Single-sided prints are printed on one side with a bleed through of about 90% color intensity on the back side; which means the graphics can still be seen but will be reversed.
The Daughters of the American Revolution organized another state flag contest won by DAR member Dixie Cornell Gebhardt in 1917. The winning flag design, adopted in 1921, is on a background of three vertical red, white and blue stripes representing Iowa's part in the 1803 Louisiana Purchase. The blue stripe represents loyalty, truth and justice, the white stripe signifies purity, and the red stripe stands for courage. A flying eagle with a scroll in its mouth taken from the state seal is centered on the flag above the word IOWA.
