Many veterans groups and towns purchase grave markers for their veterans in the town cemetery. Flag-Works has been providing a quality made in America stick flag for that marker, since 1996. The points to note would be why a 3/8″ by 30″ shaft. Well these sticks either are pushed into the ground or placed in a grave marker. The thicker promotes less breakage when inserted in the ground. The grave marker holes to hold the flag are designed for the 3/8″ shaft. If you use the 5/16″ shaft the wind can easily blow the flag out of the holder. Having 4 staples assures the customer that the flag will stay attached to the shaft. The hemming of the edges assures a flag that will not frey and has a great presentation. A stapled on wood painted spear provides a top that will not come of with the rough handling of the flags, as most groups purchase the flag by the gross (144 flags per box). All the above should be taken into consideration when purchasing a grave marker stick flag.
