Currently fly an Annin 24/7/365 on a 25ft pole.
Would like to try a Pioneer. Count me in.
Thanks.




There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

House mount at 45 degrees or so. Would love a chance.

Hi.. I'd like the Anin. I have a wall mounted bracket type flag holder/flag.

Thanks!

My flag is beginning to show its age. Probably time for a new one, so please include me in your karma.

Ordered the Anin one, then decided to just go outside look at the label and order the same thing. After about two years the current one is not separating, 90%+ of stitching is intact, only the blue is dull and faded. Canceled order and got same one again plus some stainless steel clips to hopefully avoid staining.

Existing one is made by Pioneer Flag Company.

Amazon link

ETA went back and reordered the Anin one again too. Will fly that one first and see how it compares to the Pioneer one. Also will be nice to have one on hand as back up.


responding to bolded text:
It is pefectly okay to launder the flag. Doing do will remove particles that will increase wear due to being abrasive. I hung mine on the pole to dry and used a gentle cycle on the washer.

Thank you for flying the flag.

If you find yourself needing light, I had success with this one: Amazon link. It costs more than aime, but based on my search, had the best lumination. I had one in use for over a year with no issues.

The stains I'm trying to avoid are rust from the clips, minor but ugly. Never thought about washing a flag, if I did. I'd likely handwash.

Please enter me in. I’ve been using my grandfather’s flag (WW2 and Korean War veteran). However, I’ve decided to retire it before it becomes unusable as it is (at least to me) a family heirloom. The Anin sounds very nice. This will be on a pole attached to my house.
Thanks!

Add me please. I just said to my wife I need to get a new one. Like yours mine is not ripped or torn just faded.
I have mine attached to my deck and flown 24/7.
I have a nice view of it from our dining area in the kitchen.

Great info on quality American flags and where to find them!

I have to check my HOA rules and see if I am permitted to add a in-the-ground flag pole. The house mount doesn't fly it high enough Smile

Slight thread drift:

Does anyone know where to buy a quality American made Gadsen flag? I just bought a house and want to fly the Gadsen beneath Old Glory.

Another timely thread.

When we got up north last year, we found the river in front of my parents' house had cut away part of the bank including my parents' flagpole. The pole complete with concrete was 5 feet under water. It took a couple days, some thinking, and one ATV buried in the beach, but we moved it next door to our house:



Before we left, we set it in a hole, poured a cap around it, and ordered new hardware. We just got back up here and put a cheap flag my mom bought up, but because of this thread I've ordered a proper size from Valley Forge. This is the cheap flag:

Just had to do a small mend on my flag, so I think I would like to have my name in the hat, whichever brand you would like. I have a pole that is about fifteen feet tall.

I received the Anin Tough-tex yesterday and hung. Today I got the Pioneer which I will save for next replacement.

Thoughts after comparing. I like the way the Pioneer looks better - Less see through than the Anin, looks better from afar, blue is more what I expect a flag to look like, and the stars are better stitched. I like the way the Anin feels over the Pioneer - Feels slightly more substantial, it feels more like a cotton flag, and feels less cheap.

In the end I don't feel my flags I view them, so I think I will stick with the Pioneer ones in the future unless I find something better.

Got the new flag yesterday. It is a bit see through, but it really catches the sunlight and almost glows. It's also the correct 1:1.9 ratio and looks a lot nicer than the flag it's replacing.
