On one full wall in the Elmer's Flag and Banner retail store, there sits a display of thousands of flags from around the world. These handheld, cotton or rayon stick flags measure four-by-six inches and larger and retail starting at just .70 cents. The American flag and the State of Oregon Flag are the most popular.
The uses of these flags are only limited to the imagination. We've sold thousands of these flags for parade goers, cultural events, parties, and Fourth of July celebrations. We sell hundreds near Memorial Day for people to place as a marker of respect on the graves of U.S. servicemen and women and we sell them to florists who include the small flags in flower arrangements. Corporate organizations use them when doing business with other countries and they make great labels for companies that are in the global markets.
And don't forget teachers. When studying other countries or American history, teachers buy these flags in bulk to hand out to students. We have even sold bundles of the State of Oregon flags for students' field trips to the state capitol in Salem.
So, whether you're buying the Union Jack to celebrate another royal wedding or want to decorate your luau with Ka Hae Hawai?i, we can help you find what you need. And after a long pandemic year, we're certainly looking forward to seeing smiling faces at a parade with thousands of American flags waving.
