The Flag Manufacturers Association of America Encourages all Americans to Display TAmerican Flags for the Upcoming Holiday

The Flag Manufacturers Association of America (FMAA) encourages all citizens to proudly display their American flags on Monday, September 1, when we celebrate Labor Day.

Labor Day is generally thought to be a celebration of the final days of the summer season, but this Federal holiday is actually meant to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements that American workers have made to the strength and prosperity of our country. Labor Day is unique in that it honors the daily efforts and accomplishments of the American people. Other national holidays commemorate victories or defeats in battle or remember lives sacrificed in the name of our country. Why not honor our fellow Americans by flying a great symbol of our country?

While celebrating the holiday, keep in mind some important flag etiquette. The flag should never touch the ground. The flag should not be worn unless it is as a pin or patch. The flag should not be used as a tablecloth or blanket. Red, white and blue decorations and disposable products are fine, but the flag itself should not be printed on any product that will be thrown in the trash.    

FMAA wants to ensure that the flags we proudly display are true symbols of patriotism by encouraging Americans to look for the FMAA Certification Seal. United States law requires every flag be labeled with its country of origin. Those designated as “Made in USA” may be true to their name, but only those bearing the FMAA Certification seal are guaranteed to adhere to the standards and continued compliance as monitored by a professional association and its domestic members. Look for the FMAA Certification Seal to be sure it is truly an American made flag.    

The Flag Manufacturers Association of America is a non-profit trade association, established in 2003, dedicated to educating and promoting the quality, variety, and proper use of flags manufactured in the United States.
