Does owning a Civil War flag mean you're a racist?
Not at all. For over 150 years people have displayed Civil War flags. The rebel flag became a symbol of a rebellious spirit in both the North and the South. Only recently have the extreme leftist media been able to convince uneducated people that displaying a flag from the Civil War era is "racist".
What materials are used in flags?
The most common type of flags are those printed on polyester fabric. These flags are light weight, durable with vivid colors. All of the flags on our website are polyester, often simply referred to as poly flags, unless otherwise noted.
We also carry some cotton flags. Cotton flags are best suited for indoor use or use in dry climates. Cotton flags are heavier and often have sewn details.
Both types of flags will have a strip of white cloth on the hoist with two metal grommets for hanging.
