Facts To Learn When Picking Funeral Flags

There are many situations which require a bit of planning when dealing making final arrangements for someone who has passed away. One of these is that funerary services are often held at a location other than the cemetery where the body is to be interred. To make sure the transition from one facility to another goes smoothly, funeral flags are usually employed.

When mourners travel as a group from one site to another, it is called a burial procession. In some areas this ritual is carried out on foot as the bereaved wall through the streets carrying the deceased's casket or urn, though it is more common in modern times for the parade to be comprised of vehicles. The body is transported in a hearse which leads the line.

The processional line up usually begins with the hearse, which transports the body or remains of the one being mourned. Then comes the limousine, or car that holds the deceased's spouse, parents, children or significant other. Next in order are immediate family members followed by all other vehicles carrying mourners.

Though many times funerary processions are granted a police escort to ensure the group travels uninterrupted, additional methods may also be used. Banners, normally supplied by the Home handling the arrangements, are a traditional way to identify those included in the group. There are several different styles available.

Many services utilize banners that wrap across the hood of the vehicle like a large ribbon. Still others opt to use a version that has the pennant attached to a plastic staff that is held up by the car door window. Yet another option are those mounted on a magnetic base that adheres securely to most any metal or vinyl automobile top.

Products of this type typically stand nearly a foot tall and use flexible staffs to prevent breakage from strong winds. The banners are usually about 6 x 9 inches which makes them easy to see. Color options may vary with some of the more common options being purple, white and orange, all with contrasting crosses centered on them.
