Custom made safety flags seem to be popular and in demand. There are only a few sources I have heard of for them and I am not sure they are all still around. One of them I know that is is Lewis Ballie. You can visit his Facebook page HERE.
HERE is another source of custom flags. And HERE is another one. HERE is another one. Although I abhor the name ‘Devil Woman’ this flag maker chose I will include her HERE. In doing an online search for custom made recumbent flags I was surprised to discover how many search results turned up. These I have linked to are only a few of them.
And HERE is a website I recommend concerning safety flags. I fully agree with what they say. High visibility colors and lots of movement are required for a good safety flag. If a flag can’t be readily seen and attract attention it is worthless and serves no purpose. I see flags that can barely be seen up close much less farther away. I have had people tell me they saw my flags from over a half mile away.
I know that there are those who won’t use safety flags. They make ridiculous excuses like “a flag slows me down” or “I don’t like to hear the flapping”. I would rather ride .5 mph slower while being seen then living dangerously not being seen. And I love hearing the flags flapping as I know they are doing their job keeping me safe.
Yes, I know there are lights … something I also highly recommend in addition to the safety flags. I have very bright flashing taillights and headlights which can be seen far off, but I have had people tell me that they saw my flags before they saw my lights.
Being seen will help us to …
