The Star-Spangled Banner (1795) – This iconic flag became the official flag of the United States on May 1st of 1795, when two new stars were added for Vermont and Kentucky. The only flag to have more than 13 stripes, this historical banner was used for 23 years. It was the Star – Spangled Banner that was made into an oversized “garrison” flag during the War of 1812 just to be sure that the British would have no difficulty seeing it from a distance. During the bombardment of Fort McHenry, it was this large 30-foot tall version of the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the famous anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The bill, which was sponsored by Senator Sherrod Brown (OH) is important to national flag makers like the Advertising Flag Company (www.FlagPro.com) and many other U.S.-based flag manufacturers.

Writing a flag blog about American made flags isn’t always easy. There seem to be fewer and fewer companies in American making flags these days and yet there are even fewer patriots who would want to own an American flag that was made in China.

It is a highly personal act of patriotism for homeowners and business owners across the country. When one displays the flag, it is not just to display patriotic spirit; it is to demonstrate that you still believe in the values on which this country was founded.
