Flag Patches and Numbers Placement Instructions

The flag patch is usually worn on the left sleeve of your shirt, pullover or jacket (sometimes on the back below the collar). Any numbers, if required for your association, are typically worn on the right sleeve.

On short sleeve shirts, measure up from the top of the cuff. Flags should be placed 1 1/2" from their bottom and numbers 1" from theirs.

On long sleeve shirts, pullovers or jackets measurement should be from your shoulder seam to the top of your flag patch or number, with the distance varying by size:

  • Medium and Large: 4”
  • XL & 2X: 5 1/2"
  • 3X and up: 7”

For horizontal placement, it is best practice to crease the center line on the sleeve, as seen when laying the shirt, pullover or jacket flat on a table. In the case of the flag patch, place the center of the flag over the center line. For numbers, place the outside of each number the same distance from the center line.

Once you have the distances correct, cover the flag patch or number with a press cloth or pillow case and press with a 350 degrees or cotton iron setting for approximately 10 seconds to make it stick for sewing. Please consider the fabric when pressing as time may be longer or shorter to make it stick. Then, sew the flag patch or numbers on, preferably in a zig-zag stitch pattern.
