Why do some vehicles have flags on them? History indicates that car flags help distinguish important service vehicles around the world, perhaps most notably on Presidential and Royal vehicles. The flags symbolise that an important individual, whether political, royal, or otherwise, is a passenger on board the vehicle.
For example, vehicles in service to the White House often carry multiple flags. During international trips or visits from foreign dignitaries. The limousine displays, one of the USA and the flag of the visiting nation. Thus serving to honour the relationship between each country.
We wanted to do the same to honour the relationship between our couples.
Designing our flags
From the moment we started planning SWWC. We knew that wedding car flags were a must. Thus this would complete our white glove service, that we wanted our passengers to feel like a VIPs. After all, this is the biggest day of the happy couple’s life. So consequently treating them like VIPs en route to their wedding is the least that we could do!
Of course, a car flag is only part of this, as the vehicle itself must exude elegance and sophistication. So we needed a vehicle to enhance the class and style even more. Consequently which is why our hearts were set on the prestigious Mercedes S Class range of vehicles.
Safety was paramount when implementing our wedding car flags. Hence so we spoke extensively with authorities regarding as aspects of health and safety. After this, we took the vehicles to a metal fabricator, who after several attempts, designed and fabricated a bespoke bracket.
It is a simple yet effective design – a custom bracket is bolted to the cars body work. Thus protruding from under the bonnet while holding a flag pole in place. The pole connects to a heavy duty spring that is attached to the custom bracket. Consequently the spring core is the main component of the safety design. So ensuring that the flag and pole fold away in the event of a collision.
We also made sure that the flag designs were safe for the chauffeur. This involved developing the flags that were correct shape and size so they do not impair the chauffeur’s vision.
Once we were sure that we had the safest design for our wedding cars flags. Now it was time to have them inspected by the local licencing authority. We are delighted to have passed as safe vehicles with flags attached!
Our dream is now a reality!
