AMERICAN FLAG BUYERS GUIDE to CHOOSING A FLAG
A flag is not just a flag. Putting two flags together that just look the same does not do it. It’s like an imitation high end watch like a Rolex fake or cheap paint for your house. They look identical but they are not going to make it!
When buying an American Flag for sale the differences are subtle. It’s in the quality of the material used, the weight of the fiber, the quality of the ink or dye and its color fastness. Also the quality of the thread and the stitching technique especially on the fly end where the fraying takes place is critical.
America is a big country and has big weather. You can’t hang up junk and expect it to last. Even the tackle or hardware has a role. Like the eyelets and cords, pulleys and cleats.
Americans making American products like flags for sale are made by patriotic individuals and they understand America. They understand its weather and the people here. A lot of products from third world countries have a long history of being opportunistic and sub standard especially in the fabric end of the industry. The least said the better here. Your Flag should say “MADE IN AMERICA ” or 99% it is probably is not.
These need to be matched properly to effect good use and wear and also not to look ridiculous when paired. When you say where can I buy an American Flag you should look to quality and proportion.
