Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 13, 2006 -–
The Flag Company, Inc., America’s largest flag distributor, celebrates America’s 230th birthday this Fourth of July, announcing flag sales are on the rise. Business and individuals alike are tending to purchase smaller flags, like the Farming Flag, of which 3 million were sold last year, mostly to real estate brokers.
Parades, picnics, rodeos and fireworks displays will all have one thing in common this Fourth of July: there will be flags – and lots of them!
From toddlers in Stars & Stripes pinafores to veterans carefully hanging out Old Glory, all regions of our nation will rejoice in recognizing their independence – but some in different ways than others. For instance, in Seward, Alaska, participants take part in a six-mile foot race to the top of Mount Marathon and back; and in Pennsylvania, the citizens of a city called Lititz spend their winters crafting thousands of candles so that the children of the town can light them during a special “Festival of Candles” ceremony. However different the celebrations may be, they all have one thing in common – our country’s flag proudly waves at each and every event.
In Acworth, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, Mike Lawrence and The Flag Company, Inc. have seen a steady increase in the sale of flags and flag-related products, especially through their website, http://www.flagco.com. “This time of year, folks like to decorate with small flags, like our Farming Flag. We sell upwards of 3 million of these Farming Flags to realtors, who use them as promotional give-aways to gain referrals and listings.” The flags make quite an impact lining neighborhood streets. Whilte other businesses and veterans groups use them, individuals also buy them for their own celebrations.
The Flag Company, Inc. sells cotton stick flags in several sizes because “cotton is more traditional”, according to Lawrence. Cotton flag sales are increasing as consumers seem to want something more traditional in their celebrations than the usual glitz. “And most importantly,” he says, “all our flags are ‘Made in USA!”
