Flags, honoring, safe keeping and displaying them by: Glenn Mast
Flags have been used throughout the centuries to mark the territory of a governing body. As the British colonized a large part of the world, each new territorial governor raised their flag over there countries. As the British Commonwealth gained independence from the ruling British Empire each country adopted its own unique flag, some still bearing a remnant of the former government flag.
Traditionally used in battle to indicate an army's position on the field, military flags are the most commonly used flag. Although they are not as recognizable as a government flag that represents a nation!
Flags can identify an organization or group that is working toward a common goal and purpose. Even working together each individual entity has its own government flag. The Justice Department, the Labor Department and the Department of Agriculture within the federal government all have their own branch that is identified by an individual government flag.
After September 11, 2001, the United States saw an increase in the number of flags flown throughout the county as Americans banding together to stand indivisible as one nation, raised the Star Spangled Banner, showing the world that they would not be broken.
Flag display cases are a great way for safe keeping and displaying a flag: Flag display cases are actually simple frames in which a folded flag can be held safely, like a picture in a photo frame. They are available in triangular frames in hardwoods, like walnut, oak, mahogany, and cherry are the most popular.
Flag display cases come with either a locking front door or sliding glass/acrylic panels or removable backs. They can be used either as table tops or wall displays. When choosing a flag display case, it is important to check if the door shuts tightly enough to hold the flag in place. Some Flag display cases are also available as slightly larger flag-and-medal display cases. These are hut shaped cases with a triangular top portion for flags and the square bottom part for displaying medals and make excellent wall mounted display
Flags have high sentimental and patriotic value, and a flag display case chosen well honors the country and its citizens by honoring the flag and keeping it safe from wear and tear.
