Standard Sewn Polyester US Flag
Polyester American Flag, with the strongest, longest lasting material, developed for maximum durability in strong wind conditions and intense sun. Because Polywavez flags are made of tough 2-ply 100% spun polyester, they stand up to unpredictable weather conditions. Each flag has individually embroidered or sewn stars and sewn stripes to provide long lasting beauty rather then printed stars. Each flag up to 6’x10’ is finished with tough polyester canvas heading and spurred brass grommets. Larger sizes have roped headings with galvanized metal thimbles.
The American Flag
The national flag of the United States of America, often simply referred to as the American flag. It consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white. A blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the “union”) bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America. The 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag include the “Stars and Stripes”, “Old Glory”, and “The Star-Spangled Banner” (also the name of the national anthem).
