Hi here's a brief guide to putting together cloth flags. Firstly there's two golden rules and these are be patient and keep your hands clean.
The image above is not hand painted and has been borrowed from Google and other quartering the flag and some black lines to emphasis the quartering and the addition of some colour to fill the two halves of the flag where it wraps around the pole it's unaltered. However I have made a schoolboy error and forgot to reverse the obverse of the flag.
The Cloth sheets come with an inkjet friendly coating on one side of the sheet. The flag above has been printed on a standard Inkjet Desktop Printer using the Dark, High Quality and Gloss Photo settings and having the paper set at gloss photo paper.
In short due to the highly absorbent nature of the cloth you need to get plenty of ink onto the sheet. Once printed leave the flag to dry for at least 30 mins as the image is prone to scratching whilst it is drying, this is especially true of the sheets that come with a backing sheet adhered to them.
