Sometimes referred to as “angel wings” because of their half circle shape, flags are a dynamic prop that can be made from a variety of materials from silk to vegan options such as poly-silk, lamé, and chiffon. Flags can also include multiple layers of the same or different types of fabric for a unique effect.
Flags have a channel sewn at the top to put in a dowel or telescoping rod. Dancers are therefore able to fold the flag up for easy transport since the rod is removable. Whenever possible channels are the same material as the flag with a cotton hand hold for longevity.
