I intend to paint one with the US flag and the other with my state flag. I want the wood to be sealed all over.

    I would try an oil based outdoor paint

    Alternately, you can use your paint of choice and then seal your flags with a spray wood sealer.

    Check out the big box stores' sample size paints for exterior paints in the colors you want. This is what I am doing for a barn quilt project.

    We make wooden Christmas figures we paint & seal & attach lights to for our Christmas displays. We found that for outdoor wood projects that the best paints to use are weather proof acrylics & weather proof sealers. You can get both at craft stores & paint stores. Just don't use oil based paints! Oil base paints can actually leak through different types of wood & can ruin your projects! Also make sure your paints & sealers are compatible with each others. Some aren't compatible & can cause a gunky mess. A good paint store can give you good advice on which paints & sealers are compatible! Happy crafting!
