The Journey of the Flag
Hand Crafted Excellence
The team at Flags of Valor creates unique hand crafted wooden flags, one at a time. The image below shows one of our Thin Blue Line flags with a finishing coat being applied.
Snapshot of the Process
- Every flag begins its journey as raw wood specifically sourced from southern pine forests.
- Our artists hand select each plank for its grain, knots, and natural characteristics, then assemble into a blank canvas.
- Once the reverse is stained, they transition to the fine detail work of painting the 13 stripes, laying out the blue union, and delicately filling the field of stars.
- Each flag then goes through a lengthy antiquing process to highlight the intricacies of the wood until it is finally finished with polyurethane to protect it for many years to come.
