Patches are a way that people display their pride, traditions, loyalties and beliefs in countries, states, groups, schools, and other organizations. Often, using a patch on a piece of clothing or coat is a way we show our relationships to these areas of our lives. By using a patch recognizing the country or countries our ancestors came from, we carry on our family pride. Using the patches for states, military branches, or other groups, we further represent ourselves as individuals. Flags International offers these embroidered patches for your use. These patches are approximately 2 7/8″ x 3-1/2″ in size. The flag-shield design is unique to these items instead of the old standard rectangular patch. This Portugal patch is great for you to use on your clothing or coat.
