The Flag Shop Ltd. - About Us

About Us

The Flag Shop Ltd. is a specialist flag and banner company based in Christchurch, New Zealand. We operate an online store specialising in supplying flags within New Zealand and around the world.  Previously based in Wellington we have been selling flags and delivering a great service to our customers for over 10 years.

We not only supply individuals who want to purchase the one flag or get a flagpole for their home but also provide a great service to businesses who need large orders filled and their own customised flags made to promote their business. We are a preferred flag supplier to a number of government departments, the New Zealand Defence Force as well as many local Councils and Schools. We have experience in supplying flags for large events including the 2010 Rowing World Cup, the 2011 IPC Athletics World Championships and the 2013 World White Water Rafting Champs. We also supply for events such as the NZ Golf Open, Motor Racing events and for Bowls NZ events.  Whether it is 1 flag or 10,000 we are swift and reliable.

This business is owned and operated by Timothy Simpson, who is a collector of flags. The business started with Tim supplying some of his friends with flags, selling through trademe and has managed to grow from there. Collecting flags still remains a big part of our focus of the business and therefore is not a profits driven business. All our flags have a low mark-up and our policy is to keep it affordable for the customer.

Most of our products are supplied from an overseas wholesaler. However, if we do not have the flag you are looking for here, and neither do any of our suppliers, then we are prepared to go out of our way to find it or we can design and custom make it for you.
