According to the Flag Manufacturers Association of America, in 2008, $3.0 million dollars worth of American flags were imported into the USA. The vast majority ($2.5 million) was for US flags made in China.
For our inaugural post, we are proud to feature the American flag, made in the USA by the oldest and largest maker of flags since 1847, Annin Flagmakers. This flagmaker has been apart of the famous flag planting atop Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima as well as Apollo 11’s landing on the moon.
Did you know? Even the historical US flag such as the 13-star Betsy Ross is still considered an official American flag. As long as the flag was once an official US flag it will always remain so.
Get ready for your 4th of July and buy an American flag, made by Americans, in the USA.
