WHERE TO BUY WORSHIP FLAGS?
(Finding A Reputable Worship Flag Business)
Note: in another Worship Flag FAQ, we answer the question about who to buy worship flags from; we talk about being filled with Holy Spirit, Godly character, and the gift of creativity. This post is about finding reputable flag making businesses (not the flag maker).
Catch the Fire Worship Flags has been helping creative worshippers elevate their praise with worship flags since 2011. That’s a long time to see lots of changes in worship flag styles and trends, and to see many flag makers come and go.
It’s heartbreaking to see posts in flagging groups on Facebook, where someone ordered worship flags from someone on Facebook, sent a venmo for payment and then never receive their worship flags. Or, they received the praise banners but there was a problem with a purchase and can’t find the flag maker again.
I wish it didn’t happen ever, but it’s especially sad when a Jesus follower acts dishonorably in his or her business.
Where can you buy worship flags so that you can be confident you’re going to get quality worship flags from a reputable business?
2 Important Factors to Consider About Where to Buy Worship Flags
Factor #1: Does the Flag Maker Have a Worship Flag Specialty?
Making beautiful worship flags requires creativity but it also requires a lot of skill. There’s many different worship flag styles - dyed silk, color blocking, silk painting or silk screen.
According to Malcolm Gladwell, it takes 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. That’s roughly 8 hours per day for 5 years. When you have a heart condition, you go to see a heart doctor, not an eye doctor. Both are doctors but one has spent time learning skills related to his or her specialty.
Likewise with worship flags, choose the style you want and then find a flag maker who makes that style. You’ll benefit from getting a higher quality product because they’ve already put in time to become an expert making that worship flag style.
Avoid flag makers who say they offer all worship flag styles. There’s time and cost involved to become an expert making a specific worship flag style - it’s very hard to become an expert in all the worship flag styles.
Catch the Fire Worship Flags has been making colorful multi-layer angel wing worship flags since 2011. That makes us an expert according to Malcolm’s 10,000 hour theory. We were the premiere worship flag store to make multi-layer worship flags available online.

Factor #2: Does the Flag Maker Have a Website?
You’re probably wondering why having a business website is one of the factors I suggest are the most important to consider. Let me share some insight that I’ve learned from being a business owner for more than 15 years.
If governments and financial institutes, including credit card processing companies are hyper concerned about online security, that’s a pretty good indication that you should also take online security very seriously too.
Commerce websites are designed with safety and security in mind to keep your payments secure. Where possible, avoid giving your credit card information over the phone because you don’t know how your information is being handled. If the number is written down, is it being disposed of safely (i.e. paper shredder)?
Websites also have another layer of cyber security with an SSL - secure socket layer. It simply means that the website is encrypted to prevent ‘man-in-the-middle’ attacks, which keeps your confidential information secure.
Honorable Business Practices
Nobody likes paying taxes, but even Jesus said, Give to Caesar, what is Caesar’s.
Every state has their own laws regarding collecting and remitting taxes, but when a flagmaker prefer receiving payments through Venmo or a cashapp, they might be avoiding paying taxes on that revenue.
Being dishonest about taxes is a character issue, and definitely something you should consider before buying from that flag maker. Check out our other video about Who to Buy Worship Flags From?
It takes commitment to build and maintain a website (or Etsy shop). If I am investing in worship flags, I would like the confidence in knowing that the flag maker will be around in a year or two when I want to purchase more worship flags.
Or, if there is a problem with the worship flags, I want to know that the flag maker is committed to continuing to serve worshipers by making it easy to contact when necessary.
If a business owner can’t commit to presenting a website, will they be committed to staying current and relevant as a flag maker?
Attention to Detail
Similar to staying committed to their business and continuing to serve worshippers for a long time, creating and maintaining a website indicates attention to detail to serve worshippers beyond buying worship flags.
A website offers important information about their shipping policies, FAQs and perhaps even some training videos or written blogs.
Let’s face it, the convenience of shopping online at any time is helpful. You shouldn’t have to send a message or email and then wait for a response. It will take several times of back and forth before you complete a simple transaction that could have been done quickly on a website.
Factor #3: How Long Has the Flag Maker Been in Business?
When you are considering where to buy worship flags, it’s wise to look at how long a flag maker has been making worship flags.
God is releasing creativity and many new flag makers are beginning their business. It’s exciting but building a thriving Kingdom business that is around for a long time has merit.
Bill Johnson once said (while talking to young, passionate Jesus followers), It’s great to burn with passion for a year; come back to me in 20 years and tell me you’re still burning.
History and longevity as a flag maker means they’ve had time to become an expert so the quality in the worship flags they create will have passed the test of time.
Summary - Where to buy worship flags?
There’s lots to consider before you confidently make a Kingdom investment to buy worship flags or praise banners. Be certain you’re making a good purchase by contemplating these factors before completing a worship flag purchase.
