We believe every home in town should fly the flag on national holidays. We also believe more homes would fly
the flag if more people knew where to get one. Failure to fly the flag, it has been found, is not due to any
lack of patriotism on the part of Americans who love Old Glory as much today as Americans did when the
Spirit of 76 was first bom. Because of this we make this fine flag set available as a public service at our
cost. The set is top quality through and through. It meets every standard the government sets for a flag of
this type. In addition, the stripes are double stitched, a hallmark of flag quality usually found only at higher
prices. We include with the big 3x5-foot flag . . . all the equipment necessary for rigging according to the
rules of flag etiquette. These flags are available to all . . . with no other requirement than that you pay our
basic cost . . . and fly one on your home on holidays. We also include, for the convenience of those who cannot
come in for flag sets, an order form which will bring a set to you by parcel post, if you wish. Fly the flag on
important national holidays to come . . . and especially on the Birthday of American Independence July 4th.
The stars and stripes on your home show the world that the Spirit of 76 is as warm in American hearts today
as it was at its birth on the first 4th of July . . . nearly 200 years gone by.
