Massachusetts State Flag

Massachusetts was the 6th state admitted into the country in 1788.

Back of old flag

 

Massachusetts first had a flag that had a different design on each side.   In 1971, the Massachusetts state flag was changed and only depicts the original front design.  It is of a Native American on a blue shield.  He is holding a bow in one hand and an arrow in the other, pointed down to symbolize peace.  A crest above the shield shows an arm bent at the elbow, hand holding a sword.

This illustrates the Massachusetts state motto, “By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty.”  These top quality Massachusetts Flags are made from heavy-duty, commercial grade outdoor 100% Nylon fabric for maximum durability.

New Aluminum Grave Markers

A while ago I posted about custom bronze grave markers. This post is about aluminum grave markers. WWIIAluminum grave markers have been around for sometime know. However, most people and groups have chosen bronze. Bronze grave markers were always the first choice, but since the “difficult times” many people have been looking for alternatives. Hence, plastic grave markers saw a boom in sales at one fourth the price of bronze. Now plastic was good in a pinch however it still looked “cheap”. Now we have aluminum, as solid as bronze with a finish of bronze. A perfect marriage of low cost and good looks.  The aluminum grave markers also come in the 5 military branches, Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and the Navy.

Tried and True Open Flag is resurrected.

Open flagFlag-Works over America is bringing back an open flag from the past.  At one time this flag was always on hand, at Flag-Works, to ship to you the customer.  As time would have it, the flag became too costly to make so it was discontinued. With multiple requests for the flag  and none of our customers balking at the price we started thinking, custom open flags.  Hence, the decision to resurrected it from the past.  This small window flag is designed for main street stores to let the walk-in customer know if you are open or closed.  This is a high quality hand made custom applique flag.  We find the the 7″ x 18″ size to be perfect for hanging from the top of the door  and filling in the door frame just enough not to be overpowering, but just right. Other sizes are available. We will make the flag in your choice of material colors and thread color if you like.  The picture above seems to be the most popular color combination. Visit our new page custom open flags to see all the made to order open flags.

The Gadsden Flag

Don’t tread on Me is the inscription on the Gadsden flagsGadsden FlagThe flag of the first commander of the U. S. Navy, Esek Hopkins. It takes the popular name from Colonel Christopher Gadsden, who gave a replica of the original to the S.C. Provincial Congress.  Don’t tread on me has become synonymous with the current Tea Party movement.  The original flag stood for not letting England tread on colonial patriots.   The Tea Party, patriots, don’t want the American government treading on them.  This makes this flag carry an appropriate message that is still relevant today.

Our authentic historical reproductions of flags from American history are popular with collectors or as part of patriotic displays.  The historical flags are manufactured with the same high quality outdoor construction as our state and international flags. Buy one today!
