What happens after you click "PLACE ORDER" on a custom flag?
Every flag has a story.
For example, the flag of Austria—a white horizontal panel between two red panels—bore its origin in battle. In 1820, Leopold V, Duke of Austria—Leopold the Virtuous, as he was known—returned from battle with his garb virtuously soaked in blood. But when he removed his belt, it was still white underneath.
The Brazilian flag’s green and yellow field has a globe superimposed on it, with 26 stars in its southern hemisphere. These represent the positions of the stars of the southern constellations the night of November 15, 1889—the date the Brazilian Republic was proclaimed. The Bangladeshi flag has a practical aesthetic. The blood-red Bengal sun is positioned slightly toward the hoist in the deep green field in order to make it look centred when hanging from a pole. And if you’re not familiar with the saga of Canada’s Maple Leaf flag, you can read about it in this blog post here.

Your custom flag—be it for a service organization, a municipality, a sports team or a special interest club—may have an equally epic origin story.
