Facts You Should Know When Choosing Car Funeral Flags

A great many small details need be attended when one is charged with planning a loved one's final arrangements. Among these is ensuring that all the bereaved are able to find the interment site when memorial services are held at a different location. One way to do this is to use funeral flags and everyone travel as a group from one place to another.

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.

As the one being honored, the deceased is placed in the hearse, which takes the front position. The next place is held by the cars, frequently limousines, that carry the parents, spouse, significant other or children of the departed one. Immediate family will follow the limos and all others mourners will fall in behind them.

Police escorts are often sent to assist the group on their journey and ensure that other drivers do not interrupt the line of mourners. Instead of or in addition to official assistance, the hosting Home may supply banners to each vehicle that identifies their purpose. There are many different styles of these products.

Sometimes, wide ribbons are stretched across the hood of each car, identifying the passengers as in mourning. More commonly used are banners flown from flexible plastic rods attached to an automobile's door window. These may also be found with a magnetic base designed to firmly adhere to the metal or vinyl outside of the vehicle.

Generally speaking, these products are about twelve inches high and use staffs that are flexible to bend, rather than break when stressed. The banners attached to them are usually 6" x 9" and starched for easy viewing. They come in multiple colors, including purple, orange and white, and feature a contrasted cross in the center.
