Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) February 23, 2008
Earth Day is perhaps the largest event celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, religions and nationalities. Observance of this day lands on April 22nd each year, and has been growing by leaps and bounds since its inception in 1970. To commemorate this day, http://www.garden-flags.com is supplying an exclusive flag in both garden size (13" x 18") and house size (29" x 42"). These flags will be carried exclusively by the site for the launch period and will not available anywhere else on the net or in stores until much later.
Earth Day has brought about very important social and political change in the past 38 years, paving the way for the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species acts. Growing over time, Earth Day 2007 saw an estimated one billion people participate in hundreds of countries across the world, promoting conservation and protection of the planet's resources and life. People all around the world can now show their support for the movement as well with this exclusive new flag.
One interesting tidbit is that all three organizations involved in the creation and distribution of this flag are based out of Virginia. The artist, Christy Graham, hails from Charlottesville; the wholesaler, The Flag Center, is located in Richmond, and Garden Flags is based out of Williamsburg. Though the efforts to bring this flag to fruition are a localized effort, the motives spread worldwide.
The site also carries a wide variety of other flags, also in garden and house size. Garden flags are great for indoor use; they take up little space and often do not require a flagpole. The larger house flags look great while waving in the wind outside. College students can support their school with a flag in the dorm or Greek house, or wave it proudly at a local sports game. Seasonal flags can mark a certain holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fourth of July and New Years. With their compact size, they are easy to store when not in use. Some prefer to use flags at grave sites in place of flowers because they make a more personal statement.
The site also shares abundant information concerning flag care and flag etiquette, such as proper handling of the American flag, and flag flying order when multiple flags exist on the same pole. Flagpoles and stands can be purchased separately as well. The owners of the site are as passionate about customer service as they are for the causes they support, such as environmental protection. Flag lovers everywhere are now able to show their pride with an Earth Day flag or any other festive style carried at garden-flags.com.
