The Winter winds have played havoc on my flag set up at home. It was a basic 3x5 flag on a cheap 6' metal pole that attached to a pillar on our porch. I would like to get the same set up only in a much higher quality. What do you all recommend?

Valley Forge flags? I think they are US made, nice too.

The American flag was less than fifty years old when Alexander Annin began making US flags for the merchant ships in his sail-making shop on the New York City waterfront in the 1820’s.

Today Annin Flagmakers is America’s oldest and largest flag company, remaining heads and shoulders above any other U.S. flag manufacturing company in the United States.

As a founding member of the Flag Manufactures Association of America (FMAA) Annin certifies that its American flags have been made in the USA of materials that are domestic in origin and that all processes in every step of its manufacture were completed in USA facilities with USA labor.

I replaced one that was showing its age a few months ago. I went with an Annin because I wanted one made in the US, had embroidered stars, and was available on amazon prime. It seems like it will last a good while for me.

+1. Good stuff, no complaints.

I made my own metal holder. It's over-engineered in true Arfcom fashion. The winds used to play havoc on my flag until I made that change. I use an aluminum pole that is modified to use a regular flag instead of one of those cheap banner flags. I change it out every six to eight months because a faded flag is just not fit to be flown on a daily basis. I look for American made, embroidered stars, and brass grommets. We've discussed putting up a standing flag pole but so far I haven't done that. We have plenty of room for one and no darn HOA to intrude into my business.

I've purchased from these folks before. GTG.

Made in USA. Their web page sucks, but the order was processed and shipped very quickly.

Plus theybare carried by my local Walmart. Helps on pricing and very easy to find.

Use a harbor freight pole and a US made flag sold in Walmart (you can get the nice stitched ones).


If that doesn't scream irony nothing else will

I need to replace my flag. It has gotten pretty faded. Sun hits the front of our house for about 75% of the daytime. Our embroidered flag fades fairly quickly.
I usually get ours from US Flag
