Finding Flags Made In The USA

Copyright (c) 2009-2017

Finding Flags made in the USA is not easy. Civil War flags, Military Flags and Colonial Flags hold special meaning to many Americans, especially those that have served in the Armed Forces. However, it is very discouraging to purchase a flag only to find a label Made In WhereEver!! And there are so many different ones, that mean a lot to particular groups, like the Military or Historical Buffs.

History Of Flags:

The original 13 star version of the United States flag originated on June 14, 1777 and the current 50 star version originated on July 4, 1960. The flag is the most recognized symbol in the nation, and this country has had many different versions throughout its changing growth and history.

While the flag represents the government established under the U.S. Constitution, it has always represented our freedom and liberty. It has been said that the stripes represent rays of sunlight and the stars refer to the heavens, or the highest place a person can aim to reach.

This symbolism is true of the United States flags, however, other flags, such as Military and Civil War flags have a different symbolism represented in the emblems and layouts chosen. The majority of Colonial flags are based on the original versions, including the famous Betsy Ross flag, which is the most symbolic flag story, other than the story of the Star Spangled Banner version, which our national anthem is based on.

Civil Wars Flags:

For Civil War history buffs, these flags made in the USA symbolize different periods in the Civil War era, and the flags were flown at different times in the history of the Confederate Union. While it was an American War, there are many people, especially in the South that still pay honor to the Confederate soldiers that fought for their rights of different opinion, right or wrong.

Many of the Southern States still fly what they call the "Rebel Flag". In fact, these flags have actual names, and they are made in the USA. Flags that are similar in appearance are the C.S.A. Naval Jack Battle Flag, C.S.A. Cavalry Battle Flag, C.S.A. Artillery Battle Flag, C.S.A. Infantry Battle and General Nathan Bedford Forrest Battle Flag. These flags are symbolized with a Red background and the Blue "X" of White Stars.

Other Civil War Flags available are: General Robert E. Lee Headquarters, C.S.A. Eleven Stars and Bars, Union Thirty Four Star, Union Cavalry Guidon, Custer 7th Cavalry Guidon, Terry's Texas Rangers, Confederate 1st, 2nd, and 3rd National flags, and the C.S.A. Bonnie Blue Flags. For the Civil War enthusiast, this is a comprehensive of historical flags, at affordable prices, most under $50.

Military Flags:

These flags made in the USA primarily honor the different branches of the military, although they include the POW/MIA flag and the Jolly Roger Pirate Flag. You can get the flag that represents United States Army, United States Navy, United States Marine Corps, United States Air Force and the United States Coast Guard. Many military veterans are delighted to get these as gifts and they fly them proudly throughout the United States.

Colonial Flags:

There are a wide variety of Colonial Flags made in the USA. These include flags that were flown at different times throughout the Colonial period of the United States. They include the Betsy Ross flag, Grand Union flag, Star Spangled Banner flag, Washington's Headquarters flag and the Bunker Hill flag, for example.

There are a variety of other Colonial flags that may be familiar to some people and not others, such as Commodore Perry, Taunton, Cowpens, Bedford, Continental, Bennington, Gadsden, Culpepper, Fort Moultrie and Guilford Courthouse flags. Some of these flags have significance to people in certain areas or through historical family references, but for flag collectors they can be difficult to find in many places.

Choice of Materials:

Most of the flags made in the USA are 3 foot by 5 foot flags, and they are available in Sewn Cotton, Sewn Nylon or Sewn 2 ply. With reinforced edges and brass grommet flags, they are constructed for the wind and weather elements of the United States and not cheaply constructed like overseas flags. So be sure to check the labels before you purchase!
