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

Letter to the NFL from Marine Colonel Jeffrey Powers USMC ( Retired)

3′ x 5′ American Flag, 6′ Spinning flagpole and Ultimate bracket
This letter has been circulating around the internet and we thought we would reproduce it here.

Flag-Works believes that the American flag stands for earned freedom.  If freedom isn’t earned it holds little value. Our flag has over 200 years of value.  Stand up for Freedom

PS  Protesting is positive, please use a different flag.  We have many for sale.

Friends and family if you don’t read anything else read this by Colonel Jeffrey Powers USMC ( Retired). Colonel Powers is a friend and brother to all of the Witcher brothers for many years, a magnificent warrior and a hell of a mans man:
I just sent this letter to the commissioner of the NFL:
Commissioner
I’ve been a season pass holder at Yankee Stadium, Yale Bowl and Giants Stadium.
I missed the ’90-’91 season because I was with a battalion of Marines in Desert Storm. 14 of my wonderful Marines returned home with the American Flag draped across their lifeless bodies. My last conversation with one of them, Sgt Garrett Mongrella, was about how our Giants were going to the Super Bowl. He never got to see it.
Many friends, Marines, and Special Forces Soldiers who worked with or for me through the years returned home with the American Flag draped over their coffins.
Now I watch multi millionaire athletes who never did anything in their lives but play a game, disrespect what brave Americans fought and died for. They are essentially spitting in the faces and on the graves of real men, men who have actually done something for this country beside playing with a ball and believing they’re something special! They’re not! My Marines and Soldiers were!
You are complicit in this!
You’ll fine players for large and small infractions but you lack the morale courage and respect for our nation and the fallen to put an immediate stop to this.
Yes, I know, it’s their 1st Amendment right to behave in such a despicable manner. What would happen if they came out and disrespected you or the refs publicly?
I observed a player getting a personal foul for twerking in the end zone after scoring. I guess that’s much worse than disrespecting the flag and our National Anthem. Hmmmmm, isn’t it his 1st Amendment right to express himself like an idiot in the end zone? Why is taunting not allowed yet taunting America is ok? You fine players for wearing 9-11 commemorative shoes yet you allow scum on the sidelines to sit, kneel or pump their pathetic fist in the air. They are so deprived with their multimillion dollar contracts for playing a freaking game! You condone it all by your refusal to act. You’re just as bad and disgusting as they are. I hope Americans boycott any sponsor who supports that rabble you call the NFL. I hope they turn off the TV when any team that allowed this disrespect to occur, without consequence, on the sidelines. I applause those who have not.
Legends and heroes do NOT wear shoulder pads. They wear body armor and carry rifles.
They make minimum wage and spend months and years away from their families. They don’t do it for an hour on Sunday. They do 24/7 often with lead,not footballs, coming in their direction. They watch their brothers carted off in pieces not on a gurney to get their knee iced. They don’t even have ice! Many do t have legs or arms. Some wear blue and risk their lives daily on the streets of America. They wear fire helmets and go upstairs into the fire rather than down to safety. On 9-11, hundreds vanished. They are the heroes.
I hope that your high paid protesting pretty boys and you look in that mirror when you shave tomorrow and see what you really are, legends in your own minds. You need to hit the road and take those worms with you!
Time to change the channel.
Col Jeffrey A Powers USMC(ret)

AMEN to that!  Thanks for sending it out

OUTSTANDING MARINE… SEMPER FIDELIS!

Dear Flag Works:
Thank you for sharing Colonel Powers’ poignant, powerful letter!
I am a proud U.S. Army veteran, and like Col. Powers, I am disgusted by the NFL players’ protests!
While our First Amendment guarantees them the right to protest, their choice to do so during our National Anthem desecrates everything that America stands for.
I am 78 years of age, but if the NFL players insist on “taking a knee”, I would happily give each of them one, applied forcefully to their groins!
God Bless America!

Dear Flag Works,
 
Your email regarding an opinion from “A Retired Marine”, Col Jeffrey A Powers USMC is abhorrent and distasteful. I am surprised that you are willing to alienate your customer base by taking such a divisive stance on by sending an opinion piece based on political rhetoric.
 
My father was also a USMC veteran. A private second class who served in WW2.  Unlike the Colonel, he stood by his service oath: He put the US Constitution, the American people and their civil rights ahead of all else. The flag and the anthem are only symbols and are worthless without them.  It’s apparent you don’t want any of my future business so I am unsubscribing from your email list and taking it elsewhere.
 
Sincerely,
*****  ******

#FlagWorks pulled out all the stops last night and opened the store for Michelle #Obama. At 9:30 last night I received a call from Mike Vlacich the NH director for #Hillary. He said they needed a 12’x18′ #Americanflag.  I was in town, so I we were able to open the store and provide them with the flag. From the picture it looks like they put the #flag to good use.

9/11 15 Years Ago Still the Talk of Conversation

9/11 15 years ago.

Flag of Heroes Made in the USA includes the names of all the Emergency Services personnel, including FDNY, PAPD, and NYPD & COURT Officers.

Patriot Day is an annual observance on September 11 to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001. Many Americans refer Patriot Day as 9/11 or September 11.

The flags are a historical marker to the events of 9/11 which is one of the most significant events of our lifetime. They give people a tangible connection to that day. Since flags are used as symbols in our country and a flag can be framed or flown it was the best way to create a lasting tribute that the public could embrace on an individual level.

The American Flag is often displayed around images of the events on September 11, 2001. This is to remind Americans that their country remained strong in the face of massive terrorist attacks.

The Flag of Honor and Flag of Heroes are in stock at Flag-Works over America.  You can place your order online or with a customer service representative at 1-800-580-0009.  Please remember: all flags purchased online ship for free.
