Veteran’s Day November 11th

It was at 11 am on November 11, 1918 that a temporary peace, or armistice, was signed and the fighting during World War II came to an end. A year later President Woodrow Wilson announced that November 11th would be called Armistice Day in the United States.

In 1938 Armistice Day became a national federal holiday. It was a day dedicated to world peace and held in honor of the veterans of World War I.

In 1954 Congress decided to change the day to Veteran’s Day. This was because they wanted to honor the veterans of all wars including World War II and the Korean War.

Many people fly a US flag on this day to show their patriotism and support for the armed services. At 11 am a moment of silence is observed to remember those who served.

If you see a veteran or soldier on Veterans Day, be sure to thank them personally for their service to our country. Flag-Works has plenty of American flags in stock in various sizes. Order yours on our website or visit the retail store

World War 1

World War 1

100 years ago World War 1 began 

48 Star Field was the current flag at the time of War

The world’s first global conflict, the “Great War” pitted the Central Powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire against the Allied forces of Great Britain, the United States, France, Russia, Italy and Japan. Since the time of WW1 or before and after flags have change many times.

Here are some examples of countries:

 United States-The modern flag that changed in 1960 is 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union.

Germany – The colors of the modern flag are associated with the republican democracy formed after World War I. The black-red-gold colors were the colors of the democratic, centrist, and republican political parties

Great BritainThe current design of the flag dates in 1801.A white-fimbriated symmetric red cross on a blue field with a white-fimbriated counterchanged saltire of red and white.

World War I took the life of more than 9 million soldiers; 21 million more were wounded. Civilian casualties caused indirectly by the war numbered close to 10 million. The two nations most affected were Germany and France, each of which sent some 80 percent of their male populations between the ages of 15 and 49 into battle. The war also marked the fall of four imperial dynasties–Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia and Turkey.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burdens, meet any hardship, support any friends, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. – John F Kennedy

WWI may have been the war to end all wars, but it was also the beginning of many military and civilian technologies.

Flag-Works Window: Making Strides for Cancer Research

Making Strides

This is Flag-Works over America’s window at 6 North Main Street, Concord NH.  This expert design was created by Janice of Deja Veil located at 8 North Main Street, Concord NH.  I’ve had this window for more than 10 years and it has never seen the likes of anything like this.  I know there is not much in the way of American flags or fiberglass flagpoles but this is for a great cause. We are very excited for these fresh new designs.  I wonder what Halloween will bring.
