Pride
 
Is it just me, or is there something heartbreaking about buying a brand, new
American Flag only to discover the label that reads "Made in China".

You might want to count the stars and stripes to make sure they are all there!

The flag manufacturer couldn't compete unless it was made in China. There is at least one flag maker in the US but I no longer recall the name.

Ain't nothing sacred.

Annin flag makers are the official flag makers of the United States Flag.

I was going to buy my father a new flag for his bday the other day and all I could find was made in china bullish!

I was less than pleased.

Look for one made by the Annin company. Both of mine are from Annin.

Yeah that makes me want to cry as well. However, its one of those things that makes the US made even more valuable.

And I just thought about that Chris... "Is it just me?" - Dude, you took an oath to defend that Ensign many years ago. You (like many others) woke up many a morning to raise it at 0800 and bring it down at sunset every day.
Yeah, I guess that does instill a sense of pride in it eh? :D

You can get an Annin flag pretty cheap. I think a full embroidered one costs like $50
a good stitch one is like $20-$25 and a cheaper non-stitched one is like $10. I have a full
embroidered one in my house and one of the $10 ones outside just because it stands up
to the sun and weather better.

It is disgusting that companies are have our flag made in china.
