Valentine’s Day Holiday Flags

January 31, 2014

Valentine’s Day falls on Friday, February 14th this year and is celebrated by many countries around the world. Instead of buying your loved one an ordinary Valentine’s Day card, buy them a garden or banner flag. The best part is that these are reusable and will last years. Typically banner flags measure somewhere between 27″-32″ wide and 37″-54″ long. Banner flags are commonly displayed off of a flagpole and bracket that is then screwed in the person’s home. A garden flag is just like a banner flag but smaller and these can also be called mini flags and measure between 11″-15″ wide and 15″-18″ in length.

Our newest addition to Online Stores is the Burlap Valentines Day Garden Flag.

This flag is garden size and measures 12″ x 18″ This Burlap flag is a heat sublimated flag, meaning the ink is heated up and “sublimates” from a solid into a gas and permeates the fabric, dying the color all the way through the fabric for a long lasting finish. This flag is only $10.90! Another great option for Valentine’s Day is the Love Stamp welcome flag. This beautiful love stamp banner welcome flag flgdbnr1000027661_-00_valentines-day-welcome-flag-love-stampfeatures a postage that reads special delivery.

Closely Knitted Relationship between the Valley Forge Flag Co. and John F. Kennedy

November 20, 2013

The John F. Kennedy Funeral service and novel “Death of a President” is shedding new light on a very special American Flag. The flag was actually given to Lt. Samuel R. Bird (President John F. Kennedy’s Joint Armed Forces Casket Team Officer) after the autopsy of John F. Kennedy was completed. The flag was carefully unfolded and lightly placed on the casket during the funeral ceremony. In the heavily researched book, “Death of a jfk-anniversaryPresident,”  by William Manchester, he states how important this flag was to the United States citizens and the Kennedy Family. “On the bunting over the coffin, by the field of stars, was a small label: ‘Valley Forge Flag Company, Spring City, Pennsylvania.’ He thought how proud the makers of the flag would be to know that it had lain over a President, and he decided to write them a letter” wrote Manchester. Lt. Samuel R. Bird sent the letter to the Valley Forge Flag Company and it is now presented and framed on the wall at the headquarters building in Wyomissing.

The beloved flag was carefully folded and given to Mrs. Kennedy. She was later photographed holding it close to her heart while walking away from the ceremony. To observe the 50th Anniversary on November 22, 2013 the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston will exhibit the flag along with the picture of Mrs. Kennedy holding the folded Valley Forge Flag. This is the first time that the Presidential Library and Museum will be focusing on JFK’s death, but they feel that it is now an appropriate time for citizens, young and elderly, to look at artifacts and have a sense of what the United States experienced when the assassination occurred.

In conclusion, the flag not only represents the United States of America, but it represents hardiness, purity, and perseverance. The unity of our people and the diversity of the nation were joined together during this time, like most hardships. As for Mrs. Kennedy, it’s interesting to wonder if the parting gift of the Valley Forge Flag eased her pain and brought her peace during a time of sorrow. That’s the wonderful thing about American Flags, they can be given in remembrance to honor the brave who loved this country; closely knitting a forever lasting relationship.
