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.

2020 Slogan

Flag-Works as your flag supplier, will make sure we have all the political flags as they become available. Please consider that we will only promote American made flags. All the above flags are made in America on high quality 200 denier nylon.

What Makes A Quality Grave Marker Stick Flag

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

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.

Idaho State Flag Video

Hi Folks Patrick Page with Flag-Works here….  The Idaho state seal, designed by Miss Emma Edwards, is an integral part of Idaho’s flag.  She honored the women’s suffrage movement on Idaho’s seal with its female figure of Liberty and Justice, which supports one side of the coat of arms.  On the other is a miner.  The shield between them represents the protection they unite in giving the state.  The fir tree and sheaf of grain depict Idaho’s agricultural resources.  An elk’s head, rising above the shield, stresses the protection of the elk and moose in Idaho.  Below the shield, fruits and vegetables fill cornucopias to symbolize abundance.  Idaho State Flag Adopted:  1907

Battle of Iwo Jima- 70th Anniversary 02/19/1945

The Battle of Iwo Jima was a major battle in which the United States #Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.

Joe Rosenthal’s Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in this vintage graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist’s Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen.
