The History of the American Flag and Annin Flagmakers

The American Flag carries great meaning at this time, at home and throughout the world.  The oldest and largest flag company in the United States, the Annin Flagmakers, which dates back to 1847, has its headquarters in Roseland, New Jersey.  It is known for its custom hand sewn (versus printed) flags and not only produces the American flag, but those of the 50 States as well as of most of the countries overseas.  In honor of Flag Day, Joe Vallone, the retired manager of the Annin plant in Verona, will speak on the histories of the American flag and the Annin Flagmakers and how the flag is produced.
