American Flags – Made in the USA

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Is your flag American made?
All Star Flags is proud to be able to say that every American flag we sell is 100% American made. Every American flag that we offer has been certified by the FMAA.

The FMAA, or Flag Manufacturers Association of America, was established in 2003 to represent the leading United States flag manufacturers and suppliers and to also help encourage the “quality, variety and proper use of flags manufactured in the United States.” It also established the “Certified Made in the U.S.A.” certification program to assist and instill confidence in the buying public that the flags they are purchasing are in fact manufactured in the United States of America.

All of All Star Flags’ American flags carry the FMAA certified seal, meaning that every American flag purchased through All Star Flags “has been made in the United States 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.”
