By purchasing your flags from Flags International, you can:

    • The price of a flag does not represent the total cost of flying a flag. If the flag must be replaced 2 or 3 times a year, the price may be low but the cost is high.
  2. Be assured of the longest lasting, best quality American Flags
    • Flags International tests all of the U.S. flags that we sell to assure you of the best quality products. Different materials and construction “standards” are used by various manufacturers.
    • See Attachment # 1
  3. Our private label flag is the best in the industry.
    • This flag includes special reinforcement on the fly-corners, special stitching on the stripes and a heavier heading for the longest lasting American flag in the industry. See Attachment # 2
    • You will actually be able to see and feel the quality difference!

Attachment #1 – Testing Flags to Assure Quality

Flags International periodically tests flags from all major manufacturers to determine the best quality.

These are all flags from different manufacturers, made of different materials and different “construction”.  We are not aware of any other flag dealer that goes to this extent to assure its customers of a quality product.

Attachment # 3 – Counterfeit Flags Being Sold

Annin Flagmakers (the oldest and largest flag makers in the U.S.) determined that an individual was attempting to sell counterfeit flags.  Several flag dealers, manufacturer’s representatives and law enforcement agencies orchestrated a sting operation to seize the goods.

Avoid purchasing sub-standard, counterfeit flags by purchasing from established, well-known retailers.  Flags International has a “bricks and mortar” store, an extensive website, is a member of the National Independent Flag Dealers Association and has a reputation established through 44 years of high quality products and services.
