Customised Swimming Pool Flags

Essential to any aquatics program, swimming pool flags are a valuable component for swimmers. It helps them control their stroke count, tells them their position in the pool, and allows them to calculate the number of strokes required to swim from the flags to the end of the pool. Come in and let our friendly and dedicated team customise the proper bunting to suit your personal needs.

What You Should Know About Custom Pool Flags

If you own an aquatic centre or pool club that hosts lap swimming, swimming competitions, and swimming practices, you will know that having pool flags is vital equipment every professional swimming pool needs. Colourful flags help swimmers determine where they are in the pool, and an absence of it will likely leave the swimmer disorientated and bump into the side of the pool or attempt to turn prematurely.

  • Customised pool flags. Having personalised pool flags can transform your pool, giving it a professional customised look. It will allow your swimmers to train in confidence and prepare their turns and strokes to provide them with impeccable timing to swim their best race.
  • Flags are important for safety and protection. Flags help swimmers judge the distance to the pool wall and protect them from hitting the wall when swimming backstroke. They can easily see the swimming pool flags, distance themselves when making their turns, and this judgment will inevitably prevent serious injury.
  • Must meet international standards. According to the International Swimming Federation (FINA), flags must be 15 feet above the water from the wall and must hang, by pool regulation, five metres across the pool. All aquatic centres must follow FINA’s regulations as they control the harmonious development and improvement of worldwide aquatic events and disciplines. Using the correct type and right amount of flags can be crucial to both the swimmers and the aquatic centre's success. To host competitions and to avoid disqualifications, you must meet the standard regulation regarding pool flags.
