PEORIA (Heart of Illinois ABC) - If you are looking to purchase a new flag, it may be a little more difficult than you would expect

Shipping delays and supply line shortages are causing widespread issues including when it comes to purchasing a new flag.

John Blasek from Peoria Flag and Decorating says this time of year you can take steps to maintain the flag you have.

“I urge people when we’re having these ice storms and snowstorms, or high wind storms, to take your flag down,” he said. “It’s going to save your flag and your flag pole and your ropes.”

Blasek says if your flag has already sustained damage, Peoria Flag and Decorating may also be able to help you try and repair it.
