Want to step it up a bunch? Then I want you to
see the most beautiful and luxurious American flag I know. I consider this flag
to be heirloom quality. It is NOT to be used in a parade nor is it to be gotten
wet because it may stain. It is beyond beautiful but it is delicate. For most
everyday uses, pick the more appropriately suited nylon flags above. The virtue
of this flag is its heightened beauty and the luxury of its fabric. For that
however, it is very delicate.
This is the flag you give your daughter when
she graduates from West Point. Go ahead and have it there for the personal photo
op they give each family. This is the flag you give your son for his office when
he is elected District Attorney. This is the flag you treat yourself to for your
den when you retire from the military, when you get that first star, or
when you get that corner office. This is the flag to mark one of life's singular
events or to keep in your important personal space. Then one day, it becomes the
flag that gets passed down.
I have tried with my poor photographic skill to
capture the unique and lovely texture of this fabric. I have failed but I post
the images any way because they do give you something of an idea.
Bemberg Rayon is a fabric most people have
never seen and it has almost disappeared entirely from the flag marketplace.
Twenty-five years ago there must have been three or four companies still
offering this flag fabric. Not any more. It has a warm classy look and feel.
It's colors are rich but not bright and shiny like nylon. The hues have an
understated elegance that some how are very classy and stately.
I bet you a nickel it is unlike any flag you
have seen. Made in USA, of course. I can tell you after over 25 years in this
business, I know of no finer American flag.
