Veteran and Military Answers and Flag Questions Answered

Flag Cases are ideal compliments to any long-term memorial for current or retired military or other uniformed service people such as firefighters or police officers. Besides providing sturdy, long-lasting protection for a cherished flag, flag cases can also display medals and other items of memorabilia such as medallions, coins photos, pins, citations, badges etc. And, they do not have to be used simply for memorials: flag cases can be used at flag retiring ceremonies and they make for good gifts for anyone who has a special flag to preserve and protect for the ages.

Though their uses can be varied, flag cases are probably most often used to preserve and display the American Flag in honor of a deceased military veteran, firefighter, police officer, or dignitary. Each year the United States government presents more than 600,000 flags to the family of deceased military personnel, and many of these flags are preserved and displayed in flag cases.

Flag Display Cases are also great for the additional 250,000 American flags are flown over capitol buildings commemorating birthdays, honors and special achievements. These cherished flags represent the past, present, and future of this great nation and the dedication of those sworn to protect it, and they can have a special, long-lasting homes in flag cases. Flag Display Memorials are the perfect way to preserve, protect, and proudly display these cherished memories. 
 
Flag display cases are crafted from the sturdiest of wood: oak, walnut or mahogany. And they come with a glass or clear front so you can see the flag; they  also generally come with engraved metal or brass plates on which special memorial words can be included.

So long as it is folded according to strict, historic, patriotic traditions, any government issued flag should fit in flag cases. Wall mounting kits are included with all of our flag cases and can also be displayed on a pedestal (sold separately) that, by elevating the flag and flag case, focuses the attention to the flag. Pedestals for flag cases can be personalized the names, dates and a service emblem, and engraved plates can also be attached, with an adhesive back, to the flag case itself.

While most flag cases may be mounted to a wall or pedestal, some flag cases are more suitable in a mantle or table display. Larger flag cases particularly those which include a "shadowbox" or additional area to feature medals, patches, pins, or memorabilia can weigh in at upwards of 30 pounds when filled, so caution should be taken when wall mounting these models of flag cases.
