Flags as we know them today started as military standards, or field signs, that acted as a rallying point for soldiers and helped units stay organized. Maritime flags quickly followed, making it easier to identify ships whether at sea or onshore. These days, flags are used by businesses, schools, sports teams and nations across the entire world to accomplish many of the same things. Uniting a group under one banner keeps everyone’s goals aligned, and the custom
we help design here at Signature Pins help disseminate a feeling of shared purpose and understanding.
The custom flag pins we help design come in all kinds of colors, shapes and sizes, and are used by organizations both large and small. State flag pins, organizational flag pins and American flag pins are just a few of the different styles we help design that people don with pride as a symbol of solidarity and unity.
World flag pins come in just about every size, shape and color you can imagine. We’ve helped create custom shaped pins with multiple flags in the same design that represent the partnership between nations, colorful LGBTQ flag pins for rallies all over the nation, and all kinds of other organizational flag designs that promote awareness, unity and acceptance.
Using the Pantone Color Matching System, we can find the exact shades of colors needed to recreate any national flag or organizational emblem with perfect accuracy. And if you’re looking for ways to change up the classic appearance of a flag lapel pin, gemstones, glitter enamel and cut to shape artwork are all great options for adding a little personality to the familiar design and making an impact with your team.
Designing Your Own Flag Pin
As a custom pin maker, we spend a lot of time helping customers come up with unique and interesting designs for their lapel pins. Most flag pins are based off a pre-existing flag design, so creating a set can be as simple as sending us a picture of the flag you need and asking for a rectangular-shaped lapel pin. But your design doesn't have to be so traditional.
The world of flag pins is full of unique artwork and diverse color schemes that can be incorporated into just about any kind of lapel pin design. We’ve created American flag pins featuring the thin blue line, international flag pins celebrating local businesses and charities, and custom shaped flag pins with stars, stripes and emblems serving as the backdrop for a unique design.
When it comes to custom shapes, pennant shaped flag pins are a popular option for different schools, clubs and sports teams. Some other ideas include creating a flag design that looks as though it’s flying on a flagpole, heart shaped flag pins, or even flag pins in the shape of your home state. Whether you’re looking for a design that shows your support for a cause or just looking for a fun way to celebrate your hometown, custom shaped flag pins are an excellent way to shake up the formula and design something new and fresh.
There is nothing wrong with a traditional rectangular-shaped country flag pin, but adding a custom shape to the familiar design is a great way to include an extra layer of personality to the artwork. Once you have an idea of what kind of organizational or country flag pin you need and what type of shapes will work best for your design, it’s time to choose the type of pin you’d like us to make for you.
Most of our customers choose a traditional soft enamel pin design, but we also have cloisonne, silkscreen and offset print pins that each have their own style and texture. Cloisonne, also called hard enamel, is the best option for customers looking for the highest quality pin design with a jewelry-quality finish. Soft enamel pins have a layered texture because of the raised and recessed portions of the design, but hard enamel pins have a smooth, polished surface.
