Ahead of the Fourth of July, let’s talk about the associations that help to keep the stars and stripes of the U.S. flag vibrant and in tiptop shape each year.
There’s an association for everything, and there are lots of associations for flags, of course.
Including the U.S. flag, with its 50 stars and 13 stripes.
For example, the Flag Manufacturers Association of America helps support the interests of those that make American flags in the United States, including certifying U.S.-based manufacturers.
Other organizations, such as the American Flag Foundation, emphasize the cultural heritage of the U.S. flag. The group, founded in 1982, helps to put on events that honor the American flag, along with helping to support National Flag Day, which takes place every June 14. The association’s website highlights important etiquette details, including how to fold and display a flag.
