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.

Is Your American Flag Made In America?

FMAA Certified Made in the USA  on Flag-Works American Flag

Flag-Works Name on its Small American Flags

I get this question all the time, and never gave it much thought because all my American flags, country, state, etc. are made in America.  Anyways, I decided to check out the competition on the internet.  Well, I couldn’t believe how many people are buying American flags from China companies.  Some of the companies are Anley, G128 and VSVO to name a few.  Not surprising but I guess the cost is to good to be true.  If you have prime for free shipping you can get a Lite polyester flag for $5.65.  Simply fantastic right.  Hum, read the reviews, you get what you pay for, it’s junk. Our low price printed American flags are made of high quality poly-cotton with good strong grommets and quality stitching. Our price is $15.95 with free shipping.  You don’t have to be a prime member either. Our lowest price printed American flag will out fly, out shine, outlast, out perform any cheap flag from China, or “good” flag from China.  In fact, for a few dollars more you can get our Made in America sewn stripes and embroidered star American flag for $24.95 and free shipping.  This flag will be one you will be proud to fly and tell your neighbors that your flag is made by Americans, in America for Americans and you can prove it.

So how do you prove your flag is made in America or how do I know if my flag was made in China? The short answer is if it doesn’t have a label you won’t be able to tell.  However, what I do know is by law the flag is suppose to be marked with its place of origin.  The only one who can remove that label is the end user.  So all american made flags will have a  similar label to the ones I have pictured here.  The best American flags have the FMAA label.

United States of America National Flag

The American Flag is Red, White and Blue, or Old Glory Red, white and Old Glory Blue. The blue canton symbolizes the union and the present day 50 stars stand for the 50 states. The 13 stripes, 7 red and 6 white represent the original 13 colonies (New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania) which formed the independent nation from England known as the United States of America. The color blue symbolizes loyalty, devotion, friendship, justice and truth; the color red stands for courage, zeal and fervency; and the color white represents purity and rectitude of conduct.  The original government proportions of the national flag and the state flags are followed only by the government and the armed forces while the general public use the proportions of 2:3 3:5 and 5:8
