Why U.S. flags Should be Made in the U.S.A!

Why U.S. flags Should be Made in the U.S.A!

You don’t have to be a patriot to understand the importance of producing the American flag within the borders of the United States; after all, how could the flag be made outside of its own country? Could you imagine workers in the United States producing China’s flag or perhaps American workers who go to work every day to ensure that Russia’s flag is built with patriotic care and love? This is not the way it should be. Flags.US  sells only US flags that are Made in America!

What is The Point of Patriotism?

When you pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, you are pledging your devotion to the country you were born in. This also means that you would be willing to do whatever possible to ensure that it is protected at all times. When the Star Spangled Banner is sung, it is a reminder of how this great nation was born and the sacrifices that were made to create this country. You’re not pledging allegiance to another country; therefore, there should be no point in manufacturing another country’s flag within U.S. borders. Likewise, the American flag should only be produced by American workers.

Quality of Production

The main concern of the flag being produced outside of the United States is that it would not be created with the same quality as it would in its homeland. Truthfully, how could it be? Consider this: the American flag is burned in more countries than any other flag in the world. How then could another country produce the American flag with the same quality as it would be if it were made in the United States? The fact is that it just can’t be done.

Surely not all flags are created by hand; machines have been built to increase production. However, even though machines are used to replicate the flag, it doesn’t mean that the material they use is durable. Foreign countries use material that is easily torn; the last thing you would want is to purchase an American flag made in Taiwan that becomes frayed as it flaps in the wind.

The Final Stand

In the end, it comes down to stopping outsourcing and securing jobs in the United States; this means not only reducing the amount of businesses that set-up shop in another country to take advantage of people who will work for a lower wage, but it also means that certain jobs should only be done by American workers, such as producing the U.S. flag in its own country. Take a stand and only purchase U.S. flags with the “Made in the U.S.A”  seal.
