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

Information about the American Flag
Nylon is the flag fabric of choice for outdoor American flags. If you’ve seen an American flag flying around your neighborhood it’s most likely a nylon American flag. Nylon is lightweight to fly in the slightest winds and treated with Solar-Max™ for bright, long lasting color. We use a top quality 200 denier nylon. Our nylon American flags feature full filled embroidered stars and beautifully sewn stripes to display a strong sense of American pride.
Woven Polyester American Flag Fabric – Rugged strength for even the strongest winds! This 100% spun polyester American flag has a 2×2 construction that is intended for use in extreme weather conditions. Simply put, our heavy duty woven polyester American flags are recommended in high wind areas. This tough fabric will withstand rougher weather than the average flag, however it is heavier so it takes more wind to fly. Our polyester American flags feature full filled embroidered stars and beautifully sewn stripes to display a strong sense of pride, as does our nylon American flag.
Cotton American Flag Fabric – For a more “classic look” try our cotton American flag. Though not as fade resistant as the others, this flag has an appeal of it’s own. Our cotton American flags also, feature full filled embroidered stars and beautifully sewn stripes to display a strong sense of American pride.
All of our American flags meet or exceed government specifications and are made in the United States of America.
