Just because it doesn’t exist, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t.
Made in the USA. After hunting endlessly for an existing sustainable solution, it became clear a new path would need to be blazed for these flags. Working with a local Minnesota company for the production and detailed engineering, our co-founder invented this new a flag staff as a solution to a number of issues uniquely specific to our organization.
This flag staff is a 3-part design: The forked staff, the shell, the cap. A nylon American flag will slide onto the forked staff, which inserts into a breathable shell with an opening to allow the flag to fly. When flag collection starts, the volunteer will turn the cap, wrapping the flag around the inner staff for complete protection from handling and the elements.
The estimated cost for a final flag staff, with a flag, will be $3 each. Each flag staff is expected to last decades if properly cared for.
