Announcement   We manufacture traditional sewn flags and other textile goods for our own brand and others at our workshops and offices in Somerset and Swansea. We supply all market sectors including military and maritime - and in 2014 the Official Supplier of ceremonial flags to the NATO Wales Summit 2014 in Newport and most recently as Official Supplier to the European Space Agency. We sew flags, we print superior quality flags and we also have the facility to make textile goods for other business to short order (the Noonoo products you see in our shop are an example of these!).

We are the ONLY FLAGMAKER IN THE UK incorporated and run as a social interest company - which means that all profits go back into the personal and professional development of the staff who are all trained in house. Sales enable profits which support our recruitment of additional people to train for sustainable employment with the outcome of a positive contribution to local, regional and UK economy.

​Red Dragon is borne out of a family company manufacturing traditional sewn flags for over 45 years. Our elected President Robin Ashburner founded the original business in 1969 when he made the flag for the investiture of Prince Charles at Caerphilly Castle. This makes us one of the most established flagmakers in the UK.

Under our registered trademark and trading name, Red Dragon Flagmakers, Robin is past President of the Flag Institute and one of the few flagmakers in the World to have received the recognised international award for services to the flag industry (FIAV). He is also a Fellow of the Federation.

Red Dragon has a huge social conscience with inclusivity and opportunities for all at its heart and all the company's manufacturing and marketing communications project our social values and ethical commitments. Our customers tell us our products are of the highest quality available in the World market - we agree.

We provide employment to skilled local communities and keep the tradition of manufacturing alive in Somerset and South Wales as well as the support we are able to contribute towards our chosen charities through donations and practical help when at all possible.

We have no shareholders and all our profits go back into the business and importantly our growing number of talented staff. We actively support flexible working practices and recruit through strategic partners including Shaw Trust, Remploy, JCP, HM Prisons (G4S) and Work Choices. For us, attitude is the biggest disability and everyone who works with us has the equal opportunity to develop and succeed within the company, whatever their background, education or personal history.

Making full use of our skilled workforce and manufacturing facilities, Red Dragon (part of the Red Dragon Manufacturing Ltd group of companies) is well placed to offer textile goods manufacture to other businesses requiring production of goods to short order, new product prototyping and use of supply chain and production facilities. We have capacity to fulfil any size order with sufficient notice and have plans to expand our production capability still further in partnership with G4S and other strategic partners throughout the UK.

We work closely with other SMEs to fulfill projects requiring flag poles, embroidered flags, maintenance, installation and repairs - no job is too small and everything we do is with quality, durability and integrity of product in mind. We are distributors for DanoMast flagpoles.

Red Dragon is located in the village of Exford on Exmoor (Somerset) and in the Uplands village of Swansea (South Wales), close to the city centre, the M4 and main Swansea railway station.

We actively support several charities close to our heart - the international charity Interburns which teaches burns care globally; and the Gwent Swansea Amateur Boxing club which pro-actively encourages the local youth to learn discipline through sport and competition in a managed environment.
