Very nice flag, but come on, why not make the pole and bracket in the States as well? I think at least on the purchase of the American Flag, I should not fund the Chinese military.

Other issue I have with the flag is that the advertisement tag is obnoxiously large, and not removeable. A 1" x 2 1/2" logo tag in white stands out like a sore thumb against the blue.

However it is a nice flag and has a good feel. The sewn stripes and embroidered stars do give it some texture.

This is a fine flag. It's very well made. As the product description says all the stripes are individually stitched (double stitched actually). The colors are vibrant. I've had several flags with a similar method for attaching to the flag pole and they all failed rather quickly. This flag however uses a leather loop sewn into the flag itself and that's what will make this flag last a long time. Most other flags have a plastic loop that hooks the flag to the pole and these fail very quickly. I noticed come mild criticism due to a white tag (not a label) on the flag. It is there but it isn't very noticeable even when fairly close. And if you were determined to remove it, an exacto knife or any other sharp instrument would allow it to trimmed off.
I gave this flag 5 stars because I am very satisfied with it. But one thing buyers should know is that the flag does not come with a 13 position bracket that requires 4 screws, it comes with a white two position nylon bracket. That is great for flying the flag at 45 degrees or 90 degrees. Amazon should update this info.
You should be quite happy with this flag.

This is a beautifully crafted flag with rich colors and nicely embroidered stars. The pole is sturdy and handsome and the flag flies gracefully in the breeze and hangs nicely when there is no breeze. I am very pleased with this purchase indeed.

After doing quite some research to find a high-quality, durable, and most importantly, worthy American flag-- I finally went with this flag. I read the reviews to find overwhelmingly positive remarks. The negative remarks concerned the fact that earlier-made brackets for this flag were, wait for it... Made in China! (This would be a dealbreaker for me. It's fine to buy lots of things made in China; but purchasing an American flag or any of its components that were made in China is simply unacceptable. I trusted that by the time I received my flag, Valley Forge would have corrected this embarrassing snafu.

Indeed, Valley Forge has CORRECTED this issue and the bracket that now comes with this flag is proudly stamped MADE IN U.S.A. It is an excellent value, the bracket is very sturdy and easy to install, and most importantly, the flag itself is strikingly beautiful and well-made.

Our flag is displayed on the front of our house, not with the anchors that came with the bracket, but rather concrete anchors easily found at your local hardware store (Our house is brick). One can also find a relatively inexpensive LED solar spotlight to make sure this flag is never in the dark.

I originally started to order a different American flag on Amazon and noticed that was made in China. It seems that this most basic bit of Americana should be purchased from a company that actually makes them here in the USA.

The flag itself seems well made. The Stars are sewn rather than screened. I like the spinning type of pole. that prevents the flag from wrapping itself up. I want to see "Old Glory" unfurled and flowing in the wind not wrapped up around a pole. This style pole works perfectly.

Cons

What I'm not crazy about is the quality of the pole was not very good. It had lots of small knot holes and was not straight.

The bracket that the flag came with is not the one pictured. (see my pictures in customer photos) It is not adjustable and is made in China.

I ended up purchasing Valley Forge 1-Inch Nickel Flag Bracket and I'm very happy with the quality and the look of this flag bracket. I feel it is reasonably priced for the quality. It is also good looking and a perfect fit for this flag kit.

I fly the flag every morning and take it down every night. So far the things that originally bothered me are not really a problem.

Please contact your local Boy Scout Troop for proper retirement of old, faded or tattered flags.

The flag is sewn nicely, but of thinner nylon than expected. The tag is not a big problem as some reviewers complain. Just pull the tag off, it's paper and sewn into a seam. The pole is really sad, it's two piece and the pieces dont fit together very well. Valley Forge should be embarrassed by the pole and bracket, which were made in China. I suggest buying the flag individually (see other Valley Forge products link by item title) and getting a decent pole.

Flag is indeed made in America and certified by the Flag Manufacturers Association of America. Valley Forge Flags is one of the four leading brands certified by the FMAA. The three others are: Annin & Co. , C.F. Flag, and J.C. Schultz Enterprises, Inc. / The Flag Source. The bracket for the flag was also stamped "Made in the USA". Flag is double stitched and hangs beautifully.

At work I found a flag on the wall that had tactile stripes and stars. I am totally blind and wanted a tactile flag at home. I Googled and found the flag I wanted at Amazon. The description of the flag with its sewn stripes and embroidered stars helped me to know this was just the kind of flag I wanted.

We bought this flag to replace one which was supposed to be tangle-free but was constantly getting caught up on itself. This flag has a channel that the pole fits into, and while it may not be regulation, it does keep this flag from getting caught up on itself. As luck would have it, the day after we put it up, we had a severe line storm with up to 100 mph winds. We could not get out to take the flag in, and watched it as it whipped back and forth. We figured there was no way it was going to survive. After about 30 minutes of strong winds, the storm subsided and we were able the get to the flag. The only thing that had happened was the screws that hold the two piece pole together and the screws on the bracket were loose. Once those were tightened, the flag and pole were just as they had been before the storm. This flag can withstand anything! I highly recommend it.

Upon initial inspection this Flag seems to be made with excellent materials and very well constructed. Flag colors are very bright and beautiful and hopefully it will hold up over time. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 is that the flag pole, even though it was straight and seemed to be made alright, still had a "Made in China" label on it. Would think we could find someone in America, or at least someone who likes us better, to make a pole meant to hold an American flag.
