Tillery Innovations is proud to present, our PREMIUM MEMORIAL FLAG, which is 100% Cotton and 100% made in the USA! It is Certified FMAA (Flag Manufactures Association of America) all components, as well as final assembly, is done in the United States, by a company that has been manufacturing American Flags for over 127 years. This very flag has draped 4 American President's coffins since the 1960's and accompanied the Astronauts of the Apollo and Space Shuttle Missions. Many of the best-selling Memorial flags on Amazon are made in China. US Armed Forces will NOT accept US Flags made in China for Internment or Memorial Services.
We were tired of seeing inexpensive Chinese Flags being sold on Amazon for Memorial or Internment purposes. So, we partnered with the nation's most prestigious flag maker, to offer this flag, at an excellent value. These flags cost more than a flag made in China, but your purchase supports American Manufacturing and American Workers. Plus, no Veteran, Active Service Member, Police, Fireman or Patriot wants a flag made in China. The flag comes folded and is ready to be displayed in a wood or acrylic display case, which is not provided. This flag is 5ft x 9.5ft, unfolded, which is a VERY large flag. This is the size most commonly used for Memorial services because it fully covers most of today's larger coffins. The Cotton material means this flag is best suited for display purposes, but they can be flown. The United States Government expects these Cotton flags to last a minimum of 90 days when flown from Dawn to Dusk.
One COMMON MISPERCEPTION many people have about a quality cotton flag, is that you should not be able to see through the material when holding the flag to a light source. This is incorrect, and not a sign of inferior quality, as is sometimes thought. In order for a flag to fly and "present" correctly, the material must be light enough that a slight breeze will move it off the flagpole.
