    American flags can be seen flying majestically over a government building, in a school yard, or in a homeowner’s front yard. You’ll see other types of flags at sporting events, parades, fairs, and conventions. They may sport the stars and stripes of the United States, or they may bear the name of your favorite national or Little League sports team. In any case, a flag is typically made of a piece of fabric, usually rectangular in shape. This piece of material can symbolize a country, organization, family crest, or military unit, boasting unique displays of colors and designs. Flags can be decorative in nature, such as those seen hanging outside a home’s front door, or they can hold historical, military, national, state, and church meaning. They can also advertise a business, displaying ads and sale information. Purchase flags and related accessories such as rope, stands, and flagpoles from specialty boutiques, government surplus stores, marine stores, or online. Even florists and retailers sell flags of all kinds, such as pirate, car, marine, or garden flags. You can buy American flags at USA flag stores or at online wholesale suppliers. You can even make your own custom country or other flag online and in trinket and trophy stores, for example. From penalty and checkered to outdoor garden and world flags, there are a variety of banners, poles, and other décor items that can accent your flag. Some act more as banners, while others can be staked in a garden to provide a decorative touch. World, national, country, and state flags boast your commitment to your birthplace, while sports team banners are fun ways to display team spirit. Whether you shop online or at an in-store company, consider the type you like as well as price.
