Description

This is an American made flag of our toughest, most durable nylon fabric. It has solid brass grommets. You won’t find a nylon flag with higher tensile and tear strength, yet it flies very well in the wind. It has excellent strength retention under UV exposure, and high resistance to UV fading. The colors are deeper, brighter and last over time, due to the aniline dyeing process. There is a one inch double edge fold with four rows of stitching on the fly edge. It has 1 1/2 inch reinforced stitching vertically at the fly corners, and 3 1/2 inch reinforced hem stitching (horizontal) at top of bottom of the fly.

The Culpeper flag was used in the American Revolution by militia from Culpeper County, Virginia. Quite a few residents served in those units and the flag is documented in their letters home, preserved at the Madison Public Library and the Kemper Mansion in the town of Madison. The flag of the Culpeper Minutemen is currently used as the official flag of Culpeper County, Virginia. The Culpeper flag was also flown by several Civil War Confederate units from the area.
