Cotton Tea Stained American Flag has sewn stripes and embroidered stars and features a 2½" pole sleeve which accommodates a 1¼" diameter pole. This Valley Forge Flag is hand crafted using a patented antiquing process. Due to the tea stained process, some areas might be darker than others. No two flags are the same due to this custom antiquing process. Flags may be lighter or darker than what is pictured. NOTE: Due to the staining process - our vintage cotton flags may shrink slightly by 1"-3" depending upon the size of the flag. Therefore, the flag size listed is approximate. This flag is recommended for temporary use outside and is not made for long term outdoor use. Pole is not included.
