Prior to the field trip, students learned about the history and significance of Memorial Day in classes and in a whole-school assembly. Students met members of the VFW and assisted them in placing flags at the cemetery. Cluster D donated 288 flags. Students wrote reflections about their experiences.  Their responses were overwhelmingly positive.

What Makes A Quality Grave Marker Stick Flag

Economy Parade Stick Flag. Flag has a 5/16 by 30″ shaft, 3 staples, Plastic or small wooden spear top, flag material is poly-cotton no-frey (not hemmed)

Quality grave marker stick flag. 3/8 by 30″ wood shaft, stapled wood spear, four staples, poly-cotton American flag hemmed on four sides

View of staples, spear top hemmed, sides and shaft.

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.

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.

We also have Civil service markers for the fire departments  Police officers, and Registered Nurses RN.  Please  visit Flag-Works and get your aluminum grave markers today!
