Located just a few blocks down from Flag-Works over America in Concord, New Hampshire is the state capital. The building was designed by architect Stuart James Park, and built between the years of 1816-1819. Inside the main lobby area of this historic building is the Hall of Flags formerly known as Doric Hall, which was named and designed after a similar display in the Massachusetts capitol building by Charles Bulfinch. The halls feature over 100 battle flags carried by New Hampshire soldiers, representing the Civil War, Spanish-American War, WW I, WW II, and the Vietnam War. The flags surrounding you go back to our nations infancy. Some of these flags are so old that there isn’t barely anything left of them, others are torn and tattered due to going through the riggers of war.
Many of the flags in the hall are here today because of those who gave their life to protect these flags and what they stand for. All of the flags have a story, and this room is not lacking. Some of the flags are from different states, some are from foreign countries and some are from our country. It is quite a site to see to be in the same room inches away from a flag that may have been held by such important people like Franklin Pierce the 14th president of the United States and General John Stark, as well as many other people who founded this great country. Just like the men who fought to protect the flag then, we have men and women now who fight to protect our flag today. Our hope is that one day some of the flags that they fight to protect may be added to this room full of historic flags.
First introduced on Continental Naval ships in the fall of 1775, The First Navy Jack Flag consisted of 13 red and white stripes which were to represent the 13 colonies. Historically there isn’t an exact date as to when the flag changed, but sometime in the years that followed the flag was altered to what it is known now which is 13 red and white alternating stripes with and uncoiled rattlesnake imposed over the stripes with the motto underneath stating “Don’t Tread on Me”. The flag with the rattlesnake and motto on it have typically been used since 1880. The snake is meant to be a symbol of resistance towards the British from the time of Colonial America. The Phrase of “Don’t Tread on Me” was introduced during the Revolutionary War, also the meaning behind the phrase is simple in that a snake doesn’t strike until provoked. Other flags that The United States have used over the years that also depict a snake are flags like The Gadsden Flag, and The Culpepper Flag. All three of these flags play a role in the progression of flags and their meanings throughout American flag history.
Coming together- At the 2013 Boston Marathon I have always thought highly of those who can run for such a great distance without stopping. When I found out that my sister was taking part in this event I could only wonder about the strength and commitment it would take for one person to compete in such an event. On the day of the marathon I wondered if I would hear her name on the radio or see her face on the television. That afternoon I called to see how things were going and when I found out there had been a bombing in the vicinity of where my sister was my excitement turned to fear. So many thoughts raced through my mind. Once I found out that my sister and those who were with her cheering her on were okay my mind was somewhat settled. I then turned on the TV only to see mass destruction but also to see people complete strangers running to one another’s aid. What I saw on the screen was that of people coming together despite the danger to save and protect each other. Through all the destruction and hysteria I saw many American flags still flying high holding strong, despite the attempts of someone to bring down everything that I felt America is, bring down the people, the buildings, the overall togetherness the flags still hold strong just like the people did and always will do in a time on need sturdy, strong, together are we just like that of a strong American made polyester flag.
These pages (Page 6 and Page 7) are only price corrected. As we get nearer to the conclusion of the price edits I will go back and look at the layout. If anyone has some nice photos that they think may look nice for a cover send them my way. Here is what the 2008 cover looked like.
When you purchase a flagpole to fly the American flag you should consider the installation as a landscaping project. First take a look at your yard and home in combination with garage and driveway, the big picture.
Now ask the question, where should I put the flagpole? Remember balance! Different height flagpoles will look better at different distances from the home. Some homes lend their features to the right or left of the home, some right in front, with others in front of the breeze way. All in all this is you first and main consideration. Please consider the first and second rule when determining a location.
First rule: Flagpole should not put the flag above the roof line. Certainly a 35′ flagpole in front of a small ranch will not look as good as a 35′ flagpole just off the side of the same house creating its own display with maybe a garden around the flagpole. Second rule: Keep the flagpole away from obstructions, ie tree branches, gutters etc. With this rule remember trees grow. After flagpole installation remember to dress up the base of the flagpole with your choice of vegetation from landscaping blocks, flowers to bushes. Let your imagination go!

What better way to fly a new American flag than on your new in-ground fiberglass flagpole. Our fiberglass flagpoles are not only functional, but will add value and beauty to your home or business. All of our fiberglass flagpoles are molded in one piece using the beautiful Greek Entasis taper design, the classical shape of a candle. The available options for these poles, either hinged base or ground sleeve, internal or external halyard, make this the ideal pole for any situation. Flag-Works flagpoles have a maintenance-free gel-coat finish that will keep these poles from ever chipping, cracking, pitting, corroding, or rusting which makes this pole impervious to all weather conditions.
Ground Sleeve Versions are available in 20, 25, 30 & 35 ft lengths and are lightweight and easy to install. These poles are strong and can withstand up to 120 mph winds, unflagged. The flagpoles come with all necessary hardware: halyard rope, revolving truck (allows the flag to fly freely, without constant wrapping around the pole), finial, snap hooks, cleat, flash collar and ground sleeve.
Hinged Base Version are available in 20, 25, 30, 33, 35, 40, 50 & 60 ft lengths. They are available in both internal & external halyards options. A hinged base allows the pole to tilt down for easy installation & future rope replacement.

We first called main street home at 204 South Main St. This location was a building that at one time housed a laundry mat. (view to the left in the picture) While at 204 S. Main we expanded next door into 202 S. Main St. which housed a florist. (the entrance with the American flag above)
In 2002, we moved into our present location at 6 North Main St., the far side of the first white awning on the right, which previously was home to Annie’s book store and a cleaners. We have two pictures of the 6 N. Main St. locations for your viewing pleasure. We hope you enjoy them any comments would be appreciated. We also have included a picture looking up Main Street from pleasant street present day. We will also add pictures of the coming construction (scheduled in Sept. 2013) and when main street is completed. For those who don’t know, Flag-Work’s is the building with the white awnings on the right.
