I prefer wooden. They sell them everywhere. Here is just an example.

Rob-
Some of the flagmaker sites should also offer you advice on materials. Like sails, there are flags for different conditions. A lightweight one will fly better in light winds, like the airless July/August in the northeast. And of course, wear out faster than a heavier fabric. Ignoring "better" or "cheaper" fabrics, the heavier ones generally last longer but won't fly well in light winds.
Of course there's nothing to keep you from buying one of each. :-)

I'd be reluctant to fly a Navy jack, even a historic one, on a civilian boat. Technically, that's not allowed. Plenty of other good historical choices.

Home Depot or Lowe's.

I just saw USCG, American, and State flags all really big and all $20-$25

Probably for the holiday, but they may be even cheaper over the weekend.

Great Site! A good many of their flags are made by the Annin Company.

Re: Anyone know a good place to buy a marine flag?

One of the few remaining flag makers left in our country is Annin in Ohio. They make their own flags on the premises in Ohio. They offer lower cost printed flags for decorative type usage and they do have premium cloth embroidered flags that will last a long time with proper care. I personally dislike having to buy "Old Glory" manufactured in China or the like.
Here's a link to their website: Annin Flagmakers - Oldest and Largest Flag Manufacturer in the United States - Since 1847.
