SARATOGA COUNTY — Saratoga Flag Company is actively promoting The Make American Flags in America Act throughout New York State and across the nation.
The company has provided American Legion Adirondack Post 70 Adjutant Keith Koster with an American-made, Betsy Ross, 13-Star USA Flag to take on a multi-state hiking journey where Koster is promoting awareness of the American Legion’s “Be the One” Peer Support Program, to end Veteran suicide. Each summit will be highlighted with a photo posted on social media of “Old Glory” tagged with the hashtag: #MakeAmericanFlags inAmericaAct on each social media post.
Koster has been featured in the centennial edition of The American Legion magazine, for hiking all 46 of the Adirondack Peaks and displaying an American Legion flag at each summit to celebrate the 100th anniversary of The American Legion.
Saratoga Flag Company is promoting a Flag Advocacy Challenge: Take a photo of yourself with an American-made U.S.A. Flag, in your favorite locations to promote The Make American Flags in America Act, and post the photos to your social media accounts with the hashtag #MakeAmericanFlags inAmericaAct.
The Make American Flags in America Act of 2023, (H.R. 4137), was introduced in June by Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. The Bill states that any American Flags displayed on taxpayer-funded Federal property must be Made in the U.S.A. Any American Flags purchased by the Federal Government must be Made in the U.S.A.
The Make American Flags in America Act is proudly endorsed by The National Independent Flag Dealers Association (www.nifda.net/flag-bill-hr4137) and The Flag Manufacturers Association of America (www.fmaa-usa.com ).
