2013 Flag-Works Catalog

The last time Flag-Works put out a catalog was in 2007-2008 our first catalog was produced in 1997.  If you still have one you will be happy to know that we have decided to make a new catalog for 2013.  First we are going to edit the prices of the old catalog. When each page is done it will be posted here on Flag-Works blog. Once all the prices are corrected we will add new items and spice  up the catalog.  We will be looking for ideas on a cover photo.  If you have any pictures you may want to submit them to  flagman@flag-works.com.  Thank you.  This is page two  Flag-Works 2013 Catalog page2  and three Flag-Works 2013 Catalog page3 of our American flag page.

Individual Signal Flags

What does this spell?

For those familiar with the International Code of Signals this would be simple.  For those with no experience it might as well be a foreign language.  All and all the signals spell  “FLAG” the signals used to spell this are “F-Foxtrot, L-Lima, A-Alfa, G-Golf”.  The international code of signals consist of 40 flags and pennants.  There are the alphabet (26 letters)  there are 10 numbers (0-9) three repeaters pennants and one code answering pennant.  Our code flags are made in America (not Sri Lanka or China) of nylon in all the approved colors.  We offer the signals as a complete set with carry bag or individually.    So for those who have a boat, camp, yardarm these make great displays when spelling simple terms.  The signals come in various sizes from Size 0, 1′ x 1 1/4′ to Size 14, 4′ x 6′ either with ash toggle, brass snaps and rings or brass grommets.

Each signal also has a phrase associated with it such as M-Mike means “I am stopped” or L-Lima “Stop Instantly”. For a full list of the signal flags visit Flag-Works over America.

Tried and True Open Flag is resurrected.

Open flagFlag-Works over America is bringing back an open flag from the past.  At one time this flag was always on hand, at Flag-Works, to ship to you the customer.  As time would have it, the flag became too costly to make so it was discontinued. With multiple requests for the flag  and none of our customers balking at the price we started thinking, custom open flags.  Hence, the decision to resurrected it from the past.  This small window flag is designed for main street stores to let the walk-in customer know if you are open or closed.  This is a high quality hand made custom applique flag.  We find the the 7″ x 18″ size to be perfect for hanging from the top of the door  and filling in the door frame just enough not to be overpowering, but just right. Other sizes are available. We will make the flag in your choice of material colors and thread color if you like.  The picture above seems to be the most popular color combination. Visit our new page custom open flags to see all the made to order open flags.

Open Signs or Open Flags

Well I received another phone call requesting an “open sign” today.  Of course as a flag shop I say “you mean a open flag right? They almost always say “yes a flag, one I can fly of the side of my building”.  I then answer “yes we have them, what design would you like?”  “The regular one” they say. 3x5' Red White and Blue Open flag“Hmm.” I mumble.
Well regular usually means the red white and blue stripe with open written horizontally on the white stripe, but that is just one design of the over 50 designs we have.   Well we were able to provide the customer with everything they needed to fly the open flag which consisted of an ultimate house bracket, a 6′ white spinning pole and a 3×5′ open flag which reads single reverse horizontally like the one pictured above.

When it comes to open flags Flag-Works try’s to have all the various designs available plus feather and blade flag designs. Some open banners have the word “open” read correctly from both sides of the flag were others only read correct from one side and read reverse from the other.  Each flag meets different needs and budgets for our customers.  Visit our online flag shop  for our your flag needs.   A few samples are below.

A Flag Day Poem

The Flag Goes By
Henry Holcomb Bennett

(1863-1924)

American flags in Parade
Parade of flags

 

Hats off!
Along the street there comes
A Blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums,
A flash of color beneath the sky:
Hats off!
The flag is passing by!

Blue and crimson and white it shines,
Over the steel-tipped, ordered lines.
Hats Off!
The colors before us fly;
But more than the flag is passing by.

Sea-flights and land-fights, grim and great,
Fought to make and to save the State:
Weary marches and sinking ships;
Cheers of victory on dying lips;

Days of plenty and years of peace;
March of a strong land’s swift increase;
Equal justice, right and law,
Stately honor and reverend awe;

Sign of a nation, great and strong
To ward her people from foreign wrong:
Pride and glory and honor,–all
Live in the colors to stand or fall.

Hats off!
Along the street ther comes
A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums;
And loyal hearts are beating high:
Hats off!
The flag is passing by!
