The All American Flag Workout

I would like to outline a fitness regime that works with the American flag.

 

Low level workout consists of looking up a website on the internet, www.flag-works.com.  Then purchasing a flag and spinning pole that will attach to the side of your house.  OK, now rest for a couple of days until the American flag and flagpole arrive.  The next step is to open your package, install the flag bracket using a screwdriver, (lower level use a power drill) and hang up your flag.  Now rest,  your work out is done. Enjoy your flag!

 

Upper low level workout, Drive to Flag-Works over America buy an American flag set, drive home and install your flagpole as in the low level work out. Enjoy your flag!

 

Low Moderate workout consists of looking up a website on the internet, www.flag-works.com, purchasing a 20 flagpole Commander set for the front yard.  When the flagpole comes in dig a small hole. Mix and pour cement into the hole to install your ground sleeve. While the cement dries, rest.  The next day put your flagpole together and install it into the ground sleeve.  Then take out your flag and attach it to your rope and raise your brand new 3×5 American flag. Enjoy your flag!

 

Moderate workout consists of all of the above and the addition of raising the flag every morning and lowering and folding your American flag every evening.  When you feel you reached your exercise goal with this work out go to Flag-Works over America and order a Liberty light for your flagpole. The light will light your flag at night eliminating the need to raise and lower your flag.

 

The all American workout, This workout consists of driving to Flag-Works over America, buying a 25 fiberglass flagpole and a 5×8 American flag.  Assisting the owner in attaching the flagpole to the roof of your car and taking the flagpole home.  Once home you dig a 2.5 foot deep hole  by 15″ to 24″ wide (if you have not done any of the previous workouts please rest)  Now mix  from 4-6 bags of cement and install your ground sleeve. Rest and let the cement dry overnight. The next day install your flagpole in the sleeve and raise your flag. Enjoy your flag.

 

The all American maximum flagpole workout.  This workout consists of all the steps above and the addition of raising the flag every morning and lowering and folding your American flag every evening. When you feel you reached your exercise goal with this work out go to Flag-Works over America, order online, a Liberty light for your flagpole. The light will light your flag at night eliminating the need to raise and lower your flag.

 

In summary:  For a lot of you out there, the above workouts will never feel like a workout,  because of the pride you will exalt in having your very own American flag flying over your home.  For others it may be the beginning of a long healthy, and fit life.

A Proud Moment

Note: Simulation of what I saw.

I was walking down the street today, when I saw a fire truck with an American flag flying on top. (I wish I took a picture) It looked like a 3×5 nylon flag.  As the truck slowed to go through  the 4 way red light, I was able to read a few things.  First I read Concord, NH on the side of the truck.  Then I looked closely at the header on the American flag.  What I saw made me very proud, I was able to discern my logo on the header.  Yes, it was a flag that Flag-Works over America sold to the City of Concord, NH.  The pride I felt sent chills  through my body.  If anyone has a story to relate feel free to email me or comment below.

American flags – Nylon versus Polyester

Nylon American flag

 People always ask me what’s the best outdoor American flag?  Well, I always answer “that depends”.  You see each flag material works better in different environments.  So I then ask a few more questions like:  Where are you flying the American flag, on a flagpole? Off the side of a house, indoors outdoors, in the shade, in the open by a lake, in a field, in the city, in the country. I may also ask, how high up, how low to the ground, all these variables have effects on the flag.  My experience, tells me that 90% of the American people can fly the nylon American flag with great results in any location. The nylon is light but strong.  It has great fly ability in the slightest breeze and it can maintain its construction even in the strongest of winds.

Polyester American flag

The other 10% will do better to fly a woven 2 ply polyester American flag.  This flag is heavy and strong.  However, it needs a strong breeze to get it moving.  This is perfect for large flags on larger flagpoles, which generally get higher winds. Again location is everything.  Both, the nylon flag and the polyester American flags have high fade resistance capabilities (again depends on where the flag is flown).

One place I would not fly a polyester American flag is off the side of  a house or building.  House mounted flagpoles, which already have the flag in a flying position, risk a heavy rain soaked flag, pulling the bracket from the wall.

I hope this information was helpful if you have any questions please post, call 800-580-0009, email, tweet, facebook or visit the website.

Flag of the United States “I Am Proud

THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES!!!

I Am Proud

I am the flag of the United States of America.
My name is Old Glory.
I fly atop the world’s tallest buildings.
I stand watch in America’s halls of justice.
I fly majestically over institutions of learning.
I stand guard with power in the world.
Look up and see me.

I stand for peace, honor, truth and justice.
I stand for freedom.
I am confident.
I am arrogant.
I am proud.

When I am flown with my fellow banners,
My head is a little higher,
My colors a little truer.
I bow to no one!

I am recognized all over the world.
I am worshipped – I am saluted.
I am loved – I am revered.
I am respected – and I am feared.

I have fought in every battle
of every war
for more then 200 years.

I was flown at Valley Forge,
Gettysburg, Shiloh and Appamatox.
I was there at San Juan Hill,
the trenches of France,
in the Argonne Forest,
Anzio, Rome and the beaches of Normandy.

Guam, Okinawa, Korea and
KheSan, Saigon, Vietnam know me.
I was there
I led my troops, I was dirty, battle worn and tired,
But my soldiers cheered me and I was proud.

I have been burned,
torn and trampled on the streets of countries I have helped set free.
It does not hurt for I am invincible.
I have been soiled upon, burned, torn and
trampled in the streets of my country.
And when it’s done by those
Whom I’ve served in battle – it hurts.
But I shall overcome – for I am strong.

I have slipped the bonds of Earth
and stood watch over the uncharted
frontiers of space from my vantage point on the moon.
I have borne silent witness to all of America’s finest hours.

But my finest hours are yet to come.

When I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I am flown at half-mast to honor my soldier,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms of a grieving parent
at the grave of their fallen son or daughter,

I am proud.

Please forward my message to all who still love
and respect me that I may fly proudly
for another two hundred years.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day arrives early this year, Monday May 28.  We at Flag-Works would like to extend our deepest heartfelt thanks to all who have served.

  • As I approach the gates of heaven;
    St. Peter I will tell;
    One more soldier reporting sir;
    I’ve served my time in hell. -Mark Anthony Gresswell
  • The story of America’s quest for freedom is inscribed on her history in the blood of her patriots. -Randy Vader  
We thank all who’ve gone before, making America the land of the free and home of the brave.

48 Star American Flag

I was just given a forty eight star (48) American flag by my wife.  I think it is beautiful.

48 star wool american flag

48 Star Wool Flag

The flag which belonged to her grandfather, Paul Woody, was given to her by her father, Ned Woody.  Her grandfather did not fly the flag on a flagpole. Instead he flew the flag in the window to show patriotism during World War II.  This agrees with the fact that there is no wear at the fly end.

The flag is made using wool as many old flags were. The stripes are sewn and the stars are appliqued (sewn)

As you can see many holes perforate this flag (I guess they didn’t use inhibitors back then).

PS  We can make any American flag with any size star field in nylon or cotton.  Sorry no wool.

American flag

It’s a flag and symbol instantly known around the world; here at home it’s known by names such
as The Star Spangled Banner, The Stars and Stripes, Old Glory, and Red, White and Blue. The
flag of the United States of America has for centuries been a symbol and rallying point for
freedom.

The American national flag has an exact set of specifications as to how it is used, how and when
it is displayed, how it is folded when not in use, even how it is honorably destroyed when soiled
or tattered.

When amongst other, lesser flags, the flag is always displayed in the position of honor, either at
the top of a flagpole above other flags such as a state flag, in the most prominent position on
other displays, or, when hung alone vertically, so the field of stars is always in the upper left hand
corner.

The design concept of the modern flag was first adopted June 14, 1777, but at the time with a
field of 13 stars only, representing the original 13 colonies/states. Through the years, as each
state has been added to the nation, so has an additional star been added to the flag, with the flag
being officially modified 26 times since 1777. Enduring unchanged has been the 13 red and
white horizontal stripes, each representing one colony/state.

The flag has remained unchanged since July 4, 1960 when the 50th star was added representing
Hawaii. The current 50 star flag has been in service the longest period of time, followed by the
48 star flag which saw service during World War II, and was used for 47 years.

American flags come in all sizes, from tiny hand-held sizes to gigantic and majestic fortress
flags.

Flags are flown at half-staff to denote the mourning of prominent Americans.
When the flag is flown upside down, it indicates danger and is a call for immediate help.
There are a number of specific times the flag should be displayed, including New Year’s Day,
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, presidential inauguration day, Lincoln’s birthday,
Presidents’ Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day (half-staff until noon), Flag Day,
Independence Day, labor Day, Constitution Day, Columbus Day, Navy Day, Veterans Day,

Thanksgiving Day, and other times as designated by the president.

Proper flag etiquette dictates the flag should never be used for commercial purposes or as part of
clothing.
