Flags of the Fifty States
Their Colorful Histories and Significance
by Randy Howe

#BF50 $18.95

200 pages, hardcover

A beautifully illustrated panorama of the states
of the union as seen through their flags

“[This book] packs a great deal of information into its 200 pages, and the color illustrations are well done. . . . [It] should prove useful to anyone teaching American history or to those interested in their own state’s history and symbols. Howe is an educator, and this is evident in the way the book presents its message.”
—Military Collector & Historian

“Beautifully put together. . . . [T]he illustrations are gorgeous, the formatting is as attractive as I’ve seen in recent years, and the stats . . . are accurate.”
—Pine Bluff Commercial

“Howe combines education with entertainment. Readers will look not only at their own state flag with renewed interest but also those of the states they have visited.”
—Encha ntment, a monthly (Santa Fe, New Mexico)

“This book includes quick tidbits and facts that makes the history of the nation’s flags interesting. Your children can use this as a reference book for school projects, but we bet they will also be tempted just to flip through the book.”
—Atlanta Parent

Dettra Flag Company Cotton Flags 

For some folks, there is nothing quite like them. Cotton has a very warm and traditional appearance. Sadly, since we got into this business in 1977, cotton flags have almost entirely disappeared from the market. Back then, all states and most historical flags were still manufactured in cotton. But cotton has always been less durable than nylon from some points of view. It is heavier, especially when wet, so cotton flags do not fly as well. They put more stress on poles and hardware than nylon. In addition, cotton seemed to be a constant problem for manufacturers to print on; there were always ongoing problems with the inks and dyes not being color fast. Especially reds. Cotton was just a trickier fabric. In fact, these flags should be treated with care. Flying them in the rain could cause some dyes to bleed. So don't do that. That was forever a danger of cotton flags. They were always advertised as color fast, but there was always a chance a color might run depending on the batch.

But they are beautiful. For purists and aficionados, there is nothing quite like them. So embellish your front porch on a nice day, hang one in a gym or on a wall. Or pick up a piece of flag manufacturing history of the old Dettra Flag Company as a unique gift for your favorite vexillologist.

Most if not all of these are from the now out of business Dettra Flag Company

This is a wonderful collection for old fans of The Dettra Flag Company who manufactured flags in Oaks, PA for several generations. There are still members of the Dettra family around. One was in my shop a few years ago.

And check out this great find. A Dettra descendant sent me these cool images of Dettra Company memorabelia. Other Dettra Photos   John C Dettra Patent  Dettra Family

All these cotton state flags have canvas heading and brass grommets unless noted

This list is from one of a kind inventory. We bought a warehouse find. All are offered subject to prior sale. When an item is gone, it can not be replaced or restocked. We may have only one of some flags. Some flags are available in quantity. We will try to keep the list updated and remove those flags that have been sold out.

We may only have one of some states and sizes. But for some we may have dozens or over a hundred! Does your group have an interest in buying a quantity as to use as a fundraiser? Give us a call and I'll make you an offer if you take the whole lot.

How cool is this? Seems in addition to being in the flag business, John Dettra was also in the Hedge Trimmer business! Check it out. Yes indeed, it's John Dettra's Little Wonder Hedge Trimmer. Plus, if you didn't trust ole' John Dettra, he says right there in his ad that he'll send you references!

You can see John  Dettra's patent images and filings by doing a search at the US Government Patent and Trademark Office

 

I don't know if this business existed at the same time as the flag making business or before it. I would suspect that he was making flags before this product came along. Maybe Detco Manufacturing Company made both flags and machines at the same time. This booklet shows that the John C Dettra Machine Company became the Detco Manufacturing Company
