Time to necro-bump this post. Looks like the flag is now about 15 months old. It's held up well.

You can see it's definitely growing a bit, but not bad:

And it got a little dirty:

But these colors don't fade, and they don't run:

What do you think, should I buy a new one?

Nice! Thanks for the great follow-up. That looks like it held up quite well.

My opinion . . . no, you don't "need" a new one.

Hard to be certain of color/fade on any monitor/screen (calibration, ambiance, etc.)

When you see it, does it look like a proper representation of our Republic? (Whst our Republic *should be*) If so, then it's a proper flag.

Absolutely. It's beautiful in the background of green and brown.

Great follow-up :thumbsup2:

So many factors are involved, does it fly 24-7, is it under an eave, or constantly exposed to rain, sun, wind, etc., ...

Great thread.
