Grady McCoy, Flagpole Expert

Grady McCoy

Flagpole Expert

You can't get higher to the top of our food chain than Grady McCoy. He married FlagandBanner's owner Kerry McCoy and has been in the flag business for 25+ years. In that time he’s become an industry expert in flags, banners, and flagpoles. Before starting in the flag business, Grady worked as an investment banker.

Common mistake: At events, sometimes the flag is displayed on the audience’s right instead of the left.

Fun fact: He was born on Abe Lincoln's birthday, but of all the U.S. presidents, he looks the most like Bill Clinton. Would you agree?

Favorite flag: Old Glory

Kirk Wygal, Custom Military and Guidons Expert

Kirk Wygal

Custom Flag Expert

In his 11+ years at Flag and Banner, Kirk has come across almost every flag-conundrum and can answer any question you might have about flags, poles and other accessories. He originally handled flags in high school JROTC, and then in the U.S. Navy. Kirk served in the Navy as a QM3 (also known as Petty Officer 3rd Class).

Common mistake: Many times customers get a double-sided flag as opposed to the standard or traditional “single reverse” style flag. Double sided flags have three-pieces of material and don’t “fly” as well. They are heavier and will drape down the flagpole.

Fun fact: Named after Star Trek's Captain Kirk

Favorite flag: The 1st Navy Jack, which he considers to be the first flag of U.S.

Matt McCoy

Matthew Savage McCoy

Matthew was literally born for this. Although he is the youngest member of the team, he was raised in the flag business. Son of owner, Kerry McCoy and flagpole expert, Grady McCoy, Matthew cut his teeth on flags (not really!) His great attitude, fun demeanor and songbird skills make for a very happy sales floor. He is also the Executive Director of the non-profit ‘Friends of Dreamland,’ and when needed will run to production to make custom flag and banner layouts. He is an all-around team player.

Common mistake: : Most people don’t understand the difference between art file types or PMS and CMYK colors.

Fun fact: Born on July 3rd (the day before the biggest day in the Flag Industry). He has red hair-just like a firecracker!

Favorite flag: New Mexico

Being able to walk into this historic building everyday is a reminder of her hard work and if you put your mind/heart into it, you can do anything."

Most requested items in the showroom: Besides the US and Arkansas flags, military gifts

Hardware Expert

Sam has been diagnosed with stage 4 Prostate Cancer. He is currently out of the office getting treatments. Please consider making a donation to their family through the families Big Sam Rutherford Cancer Treatment GoFundMe or in the showroom.

Sam started out in the screen-printing department at Flag and Banner. He moved to shipping and receiving. He spent some time in the showroom and then moved upstairs to sales. In his 23 years at Flag and Banner, he's basically seen every single part of the business of making and selling flags. When he started those many years ago, he thought all flags were the same! Now he can rattle off information about digital prints, appliques, embroidered flags, double-sided, single reverse... and help you find the perfect fit. Like Kirk, Sam also served in the military. He was a boom operator in the Air Force during the Vietnam War.

Common mistake: Customers confuse flag terminology (pennant/flag/banner) and flag fabrics

Fun fact: Sam came to us skinny, but now we call him "Big Sam".

Favorite flag: The U.S. flag
