Political Flags of the Times – Trump Flags

Political promotion has come in many styles, lawn signs, bumper stickers, endorsements, TV and radio advertisements, Tweets, Facebook, all forms of social media etc. Although flags have always been apart of the political landscape, with American flags being the predominant backdrop for the candidates, subliminally saying how patriotic they are. There are also political party flags, Independent, Republican and Democrat which have never received to much attention. However, I foresee advertising with flags having a big upsurge due to one political candidate.

Flags being used as a backdrop.

Donald Trump has created many one line phrases which work great on flags. “Make America Great Again” with bars and stars is a simple, crisp and clear message displayed on a white background. It is readable and instantly recognizable as a Trump flag. That design then works with almost any phrase such as “No More Bullshit” a line from one of Mr. Trumps speech “rally”.

A Line From a Rally/Speech

With this basic design People can be reminded of his accomplishments, his beliefs, and the attacks from his opposition as with the phrase “Promises Made Promises Kept” “God Family Country”, “No Collusion” All appealing to different members of his base supporters.

With the newest phrase “2020 Keep America Great” winning as his new slogan for this election cycle, I foresee many new slogan/flags in the near future.
