Annin Flagmakers is very proud to have had the opportunity to participate, in partnership with the USOC for their ‘RAISE OUR FLAG” (http://www.raiseourflag.org) fundraising campaign, and produced the 6’ x 10’ US Flag which will be carried to London by a select group of US Athletes and will hang in the Olympic Athletes Village. This special USOC campaign raised 29,254 donated stitches at $12 each ( $351,048) to help finance the athletes in addition to other USOC sponsor funds.
Bob Caggiano, Vice President of Sales for Annin Flagmakers escorted the flag to the United Airlines terminal in Chicago on Monday for presentation to the athletes and the United Airline Crew. The flag will fly in the Olympic Athletes Village. Reports Bob, "this was quite an honor for me and a moment we at Annin are proud to participate in the support of our Olympic athletes".
