Made in Your City: American-made flags

Posted by LDonia on 06/14/2013

On September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key wrote a poem describing his experience on a boat watching British forces attack the port of flagsBaltimore. The poem, of course, went on to become the national anthem of the United States, the Star Spangled Banner.

The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) often hears from people frustrated by an inability to find “Star Spangled Banners” made in the U.S.  So this week’s Made in Your City honors Key and hopefully helps some of our readers find American-made flags.

The Flag Manufacturers Association of America (FMAA) works to make it easy for consumers to know they’re purchasing an American-made flag. The Association certifies flags that are “made in the U.S. of materials that are domestic in origin and that all processes in every step of its manufacture were completed in U.S. facilities with U.S. labor.”

FMAA lists the following companies as the leading manufacturers of USA-made and certified flags:

Several of these companies have "where to buy" tabs on their websites, which should make locating their products more easy.
