Although we make every effort, colours are not guaranteed and unless they vary massively to what is shown on our website we do expect that customers will accept items with colour or design differences. Computer monitors can show colours differently depending on settings or the type of display. Batches of flags can vary in colour and design due to changes in production or source, and many flag designs do not have official pantone colours to refer to. If a particular shade of colour is required, please ask us in advance of ordering and we will check our stock, and try our best to help
