On Monday, January 21, 2013, President Barack Obama was ceremoniously sworn into office by taking the oath that began his second term in the White House. The entire inauguration lasted only a day, but the preparation involved began way in advance, including the purchase of the American Flags that peppered the crowd in the National Mall.
Online Stores, Inc., parent company of The United States Flag Store, was contacted by the Visuals Management Coordinator of the 57th Presidential Inauguration Committee for an order of presidential proportions. The Coordinator needed to purchase 150,000 US Stick flags (8″ x 12″) to be handed out by the Committee to those attending. A tall order, but one that The United States Flag Store was ready to handle.
These particular stick flags are USA made, and in fact are manufactured at our factory in Pennsylvania. Needless to say, we were proud to see that the Committee was purchasing flags made in the USA. The Flag Store team was able to get the order done and delivered on time for the historical event.
You can find photos of our flags, and other moments, on the Committee’s Twitter page. If you, or someone you know attended the event and has photos with our flags flying, please feel free to post them to our Twitter page or our Facebook page.
