In honor of July 4th (yes I’m a day early, but I’m checking out early on this one) and in response to this appalling statistic, I give you The Annin American Flag. Since 1847, the Annin brand has been making their proud flags right here in the U S of A. When explorer Robert Peary reached the North Pole, he planted an Annin flag. When the Apollo Eleven 11 crew planted that first flag on the moon, it was an Annin. Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima? Yup, you guessed it, that too was an Annin product. They’re 100% cotton, clock in at just under $35, and are made in New Jersey (Annin was founded on Fulton Street here in New York, but has since made the leap to the other side of the river.) Enough with the China made flags already, get an Annin from Best Made Company now, you’ll be doing this country proud.
And that’s enough heritage blogging for now, I’m gone fishin’ (er, drinkin’) have a good 4th everyone.
