End of summer
Summer is coming to an end, especially for those who have children returning to school. As with every year since 1882, this summer will begin to transition into fall by way of Labor Day and a well-earned three-day weekend. We hope you will enjoy your Labor Day weekend safely, and in the company of friends and family.
At LIBERTY FLAGS, we work diligently to provide American flags that are fully manufactured here, on U.S. soil. We are thankful for every American worker who contributes to the manufacture, purchase and delivery of the products we proudly offer. As you may already know, every single American flag we offer is 100% American-made — and they always will be.
As the U.S. Department of Labor says, “Labor Day is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country.”
Send us your pictures of Labor Day celebrations, American flags, flagpoles, ropes, or other accessories! We would be honored to feature your photography in our blog or on Facebook. Remember, photos of damaged flags and accessories are valuable, too.
