It probably won’t shock you to learn that most American flags aren’t actually made in the USA. Like almost all things today, overseas makers dominate the American flag market.
Yes, we realize American-made flags often cost more than those imported from China—but we were pleasantly surprised to find American-made flags that were easy on the wallet. (We tried out several flags from American manufacturers for this article—and also compared these to imported flags).
Case in point: this Annin American Flag, made in Virginia and Ohio, USA. The quality is high and the colors are vibrant.
What We Liked
• Nylon fabric flag can be used indoors or outdoors.
• Embroidered stars and stitched stripes.
• Color-matched stitching.
• 2 brass grommets.
• Looks fantastic.
• Great for outdoor use in light winds. Thanks to the lightweight fabric, this flag can fly in the slightest breeze.
What’s Needs Work
• Not the best choice for windy areas. You may want to go for a beefier flag if you live in an area with high winds. This one will probably begin to fray after a few months of moderate to heavy wind. But that’s true of most affordable flags made of lightweight nylon—they don’t last forever.
