Flags & Floppies

Rosco Flags and Floppies are used to block, cut, and shape light on set.

Rosco Flags are manufactured using steel spring tube construction and popular light modifying fabrics such as Molton, Nets, and Silks. They also feature a strong webbing around the frame that makes them light and easy to handle. The webbing is colour-coded to facilitate easy material identification on set. Rosco Flags are available in six standard sizes. Replacement fabric panels are sold separately and attach to the frame via Velcro.

Rosco Floppies are manufactured using Black Molton or Commando Cloth/Duvetyne fabrics. Floppies are essentially opaque flags that have an extra layer of material sewn onto one edge that “flops” open to double its size. The excess fabric of a floppy can be held in place with Velcro, enabling it to also be used as a standard-sized flag.
