United States Flag!! Long may it wave!

The United States flag flies out front of our house and has for years. What I don't understand is why is it so hard to find United States Flag? I live in Southern California it's not like I'm over seas. Shouldn't American Flags be one of those things that are easy to find? When we finally find retailer that sells flags, we usually buy a couple.  We do not want a ratty tattered flag out front. I finally got smart and started looking on line for American Flags. A HA!!!  Why wasn't I looking on line to begin with?? I found the site I will be buying our flags from now on!! Prices are awesome, selection is amazing (state flags, military flags, sport flags, historical flags, the list just goes on and on!!) and they are an authorized Annin flags dealer.  Do you know what Annin is?  Neither did I, so off to google I went. Here is what I found:  

Annin Flagmakers is committed to operating within the highest standards of business 
ethic’s and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Annin suppliers comply with these principles. 
1. Child Labor
Our suppliers must not use child labor. The term “child” will be governed by the 
national law of the Country in which the production is being conducted. If the laws of that 
Country do not provide definition or if the definition includes individuals below the age of 14 
years, Annin defines a “child” to be anyone below 14 years of age. 
2. Forced Labor
You must not engage in the use of any involuntary or forced labor, which would 
include prison labor, indentured labor, bonded labor, labor acquired through slavery, human 
trafficking, or otherwise. 
3. Environment
Achieving sustainability of our nature resources is a goal for Annin and we encourage 
all of our vendors to conduct their business in a way that protects our environment. All 
suppliers must ensure that they comply with all applicable environmental laws and 
regulation. 
4. Health and Safety 
Annin’s suppliers must provide their workers with a safe and healthy workplace and 
safe working conditions. They must comply with all local health and safety regulations and 
promote policies that prevent accidents and reduce health risk for their employees.
5. Gifts and Gratuities
Suppliers may not offer or accept any bribes, gifts or gratuities meant to achieve any 
unfair advantage to their business.
6. Country of Origin
Supplier will adhere to the laws and regulations of the Countries of manufacture and 
distribution relating to product design, manufacture, packaging, labeling, and importation. 
All products, unless specifically exempted under the applicable customs laws and 
regulations, shall be marked with the Country of origin.
7. Laws and Regulations
Annin suppliers must conduct their business in compliance with all applicable laws 
and regulations, including the principles set forth in the Code of Conduct. 

WOW! Guess you know where our next flag is coming from!!

  4. First of all, that's great that there's an actual source online to find flags! Second, I think the Annin company may have the best principals I've seen of any company. They seem to be very committed to civil liberties and ethics. Very nice. I will have to keep them in mind as a flag source!
