CUSTOM DESIGNED RETRACTABLE FLAG STAFF
The Legacy Flag
It was a tireless search that constantly fell short when looking for a flag staff worth investing in as the permanent collection for Fort Snelling National Cemetery. The wooden stakes with stapled canvases simply weren’t designed to withstand outdoor use or multiple years of handling and storage. In 2019, an estimated 60,000 flags were lost to damage; an annual expense this tradition simply cannot afford.
Determined to help the event, Rocky Borchardt, co-founder of FFFS, designed this custom retractable flag staff to answer our organization’s long-term needs!
