We believe every home in town should fly the flag on national holidays. Wo afso 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 born. Because of this we make this fine flag set available as i
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 3 x 5-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 I ndependence July 4th. The stars and stripes
on your home show the world that the Spirit of 76 is as warm in American hearts today at It was at
its birth on the first 4th of July... nearly 200 years gone by.
THIS FLAG SET IS OFFERED AT COST AS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT SERVICE OP
