Basic Details You Should Notice When Choosing Funeral Car Flags

The passing of a loved ones brings many small details that will need attending. One such situation is getting all mourners from the funerary service location to the place where the body will be interred. Certain protocols are in place to assist with this, including the use of specially designed funeral flags.

The parade of mourners following the remains of an individual from the location of services to the site of interment is known as a procession. In some cultures it consists of people walking and carrying the body to its final resting place, though more commonly it is a line of vehicles. The chain is led by the hearse with the deceased inside.

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.

These average staff of these products is about twelve inches and made of a strong, yet flexible plastic. The pennants are thick material in an easily noticed size of approximately 6 x 9 inches. Though they come in several colors, orange, white or purple with a cross of a contrasting color in the center are most common.
