Bunting Flags - a traditional yet timeless decoration
A conventional yet timeless beautification, bunting is a happy addition to any gathering.If you host a game party for your friends to watch a big local or international match then Bunting Flags are must. Decorate your place with bunting flags representing your favourite team,for additional luck.
You can use bunting flags that represent different countries or regions to add a cosmopolitan flavour to your party.
Bunting is a form of decoration that originated with an old form of thin fabric composed of a light-wight parallel weave wool fabric called buntine or tammy, which was once used by the British Royal Navy in the 17th century to make flags for their ships. Bunting was originally a form of communication between ships as signalling flags rather than a decoration.
It's extremely light weight, which allowed it to wave elegantly in the wind, and high glaze, which made it strong and bold, were the key properties that made it very useful in the manufacture of flags and ribbons during the period.
Earlier forms of the signalling bunting were known in Europe from the time of the Crusades, and perhaps even ancient China. The most famous message sent using traditional bunting was from Admiral Nelson at the helm of the HMS Victory during the Battle of Trafalgar: 'England expects every man to do his duty.' Today, bunting is used to describe form of decorative ornamentation meant to resemble decorative flags or other shapes, although today they are more usually be composed of other materials such as polyester, nylon, plastic, paper or even cardboard. Bunting comes in a wide variety of shapes and designs, including but not limited to miniature flags, pennants, pleated fans, rolls, rugs, sticks, table skirts and towels.
They are often used as draperies, banners or streamers during festive events, special occasions and national holidays, where they are hung from doorways, windows, railings, decks and even rooftops. They can come in both plain and patterned designs, even featuring words, pictures or floral prints. Modern decorative bunting can be seen in many occasions in today's world, maybe even more than most people realize.
Bunting has a festive, exciting look that brings fun and holidays to mind and gets people in the mood to have a good time. To see bunting set up indicates to everyone who can see it that there is something special and exciting under way, and it quickly draws the eye of passers-by. While it is all too often over-looked in favor of other, more gaudy, forms of decoration, it nevertheless plays an important and key peripheral role in tying an event together.
And when the event is over, there is no reason you can't leave the bunting up for the rest of the year, adding some cheerful color to your home or business.
In the United Kingdom and many parts of Europe, bunting is seen as a necessity for street parties, strung up between lamp-posts and other poles while people celebrate in the street. Meanwhile in the United States, bunting often has a patriotic connotation, with the bunting proudly colored in red, white and blue or with American flag or eagle designs being displayed from porches, decks and railings on important national holidays such as Independence Day.
In other countries, bunting can be used in this same way to bolster national pride, for example, black, red and gold for Germany and green, white and orange for Ireland. Colored bunting need not only represent national colors, though, as you can use bunting of specific colors to celebrate a favorite sports team, a company and even a school. Sports parties, in particular, make common and enthusiastic use of bunting to show off the team spirit of the fans and participants in attendance.
Colorful and festive bunting is a form of decoration that is traditional but also timeless, and can quickly transform a party or event into something special, whether it is being held indoors or outside. Bunting is often commonly used at weddings, particularly outdoor weddings, as well as other special events such as graduations and parties.
Bunting has also found use in the corporate world. It can be commonly seen at exhibitions, trade shows and conventions to indicate a unique and exciting event is happening, and also as a subtle form of advertising.. It can be used to inaugurate the launch of a new store or franchise, or a new product. It can even be used to announce the beginning of a big sale season or large discounts. The fact that most of us associate bunting with excitement and fun make it an easy choice for business owners to use bunting to draw in customers and show off their cheerful spirit.
When choosing bunting, it is not only important to choose the right design but also the right material. Paper bunting is cheap, light-weight and resembles fabric, but it is not waterproof and rarely lasts longer than a couple of days of use. Well made fabric or plastic bunting, while often more expensive, is a better choice if you are going to be using the same bunting continuously over several years. For a child's birthday party or one-off event, it is likely best to choose paper bunting, but for corporate use or to advertise a business, it looks more professional and lasts longer to use bunting from good-quality fabric or glossy plastic.
Regardless of what you decide choose, bunting is both fun and extremely affordable and can even be made at home as a side project for families with children, as well as those who simply have a creative streak.
A wide variety of bunting templates and designs can be easily found on the internet. You can use bunting as a home decoration, perhaps as a way of adding life to your living room or to decorate your children's bedrooms.
For those who prefer to buy ready-made bunting can easily find it for sale both online and at specialty stores. Many providers of bunting and similar products will even be willing to personalize your bunting in whatever colors, designs or materials you desire. It is often possible to get discounts and special deals on large orders of bunting, especially for corporate clients or large events.
Bunting is a popular and archetypal choice for event decoration, and it is rarely inappropriate for any special event. For your next big party, corporate event, trade exposition, convention, sports day or wedding, remember to choose the right kind of bunting to make it truly special.
A Tribute to Bunting Flags
The term "Bunting" which is widely used today may be defined as a party or special occasion decoration that is made of either cloth or paper or plastic materials cut into triangular shapes and strung together.Different sizes and shapes of these bunting flags are also available in the market.
Historically these bunting flags have a different meaning.In earlier days of naval operations the flags used by the officers to send different coded signals were called a "Bunt". This term is still in use in naval communications.
Historically Bunting is a middle english word for a worsted woolen fabric that used to have a good colour retention and longevity and was used as naval signal flags for years, This fabric was the chosen one for flags of the British Navy because of it being a worsted parallel weave thin fabric, being light weight and parallel woven, flags made of this fabric would catch the breeze gracefully in the traditional undulation motion associated with a flying flag.
Today the word bunting has taken on a much more generic form used to describe decorative flags and chains of flags that is meant to look like ornamental versions of the original signal bunting (although the material of choice today is synthetic paper over fabric for ease of storage and cleaning). The most common forms of bunting is strings of brightly colored plastic or synthetic paper triangles that flap in the breeze.
