Loving Life And Our Flag!

Our AMERICAN FLAG is so rich in history I thought I would give a little background on some basic facts. Every red-blooded American knows the premise that Congress first authorized the flag June 14, 1777 (maybe not the date; who remembers dates?) and that we would have a star and a stripe represent each state. This evolved over the years because adding the next stripe was too much. We kept the thirteen alternating stripes to the original colonies, but added a new star as each state entered the Union. Did you know that the colors of our flag have significance also?

Red, White and Blue: Red is Valor. White is for Purity. Blue is for Vigilance and Justice.

wwii wall -southIn May 2014, my boyfriend (Honey) and I bought 500 small stick American Flags for Memorial Day. We had an idea to give back to those that had served in our Military, but what to actually do? We called Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola, FL to see if we could place those on the graves, but the Boy Scout Troops in this area attend to the Cemetery. Next we called Veterans Memorial Park, also here in Pensacola, FL and they gave us permission to place the Flags around the park. Now Honey is a former Marine USMC (oorah) so he has very strong feelings to help and/or honor our Military. The Veterans Memorial Park, or as we call it here, “Wall South” (this is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in D.C.) not only has Vietnam War Memorial, but World War I, World War II, Korean War, Global War on Terror, and the Marine Aviation Memorials. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful memorial here in our city that is so historically based on a true love of our country!

Without even finishing this year’s placement, we started to plan for next year, larger flags and significantly more! We just loved our flags we bought and we were so humbled to give the honor to those that have served past, present and future. A couple weeks later, we won a gift certificate for Priceless! from the United States Flag Store by submitting a photo of these flags. With our gift certificate, I ordered Honey the Garden UCMC Flag and the Decorative Garden Flag Holder for Father’s Day. The garden flag is just gorgeous and made so well, double sided stitching with vibrant colors! The holder has a nice “locking” arm that secures your flag in all types of weather.

Have fun always,

Valentine’s Day Holiday Flags

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.
