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.

Sam Rutherford, Hardware Expert

Sam Rutherford

Hardware Expert

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
