I couldn't take it any more. After years of relying on disappointing imported 1st National stick flags from distributors, I just went out and had a big batch made for myself to the same specifications used for the best flags we supply to veterans and governments for Memorial Day. Take a look at my photo essay below. Compare the flags and you will see what I mean.

My Pet Peeves About Imported Confederate Stick Flags


I just couldn't stand it any more! First of all, most of the time the 1st National stick flags we could get from importers were on the 24" stick like the short flag on the right. Our proper 30" stick is on the left.

A 12x18" flag on a 24" staff is a problem if you intend to stick the flag in the ground

Here is the problem with a 24" staff. You have to stick the flag in the ground a few inches anyway. Say my finger represents the ground level with the stick about 3" in the ground. See how long that flag drapes down? The flag would be touching and laying on the ground if the wind is not blowing.



Sleeved import on the left, my stapled 1st National on the right.

The next thing I couldn't stand any more is how they were mounting the imported flag. Years ago, at least we could count on a nice stapled flag. Then they began sleeving them. I guess they figured out it was cheaper to sleeve them. Trouble is, the flag slips down the staff!! Oh sure, they're glued at the top of the sleeve. Yeah right, and pigs fly.

That is my new 1st National flag on the right. It is fully stapled with FOUR staples along the edge. Notice also my First National is hemmed on all four edges. PLUS, look at that nice generous wooden gilt spear tip compared to the plastic imported tip.





Thin stick import on the right, my thick stick 1st National on the left

Next pet peeve: Skinny sticks. The usual imported 1st National stick flag has a 5/16" staff like the one shown on the right. I wanted to solve that situation so I had mine made with the the full 3/8" x 30" thick stick just like the best ones we supply to veterans groups for Memorial day.
