What are Flag Alerts? Our FlagandBanner.com Flag Alerts are created especially for you to provide:
At FlagandBanner.com, we know you have a choice and thank you for choosing us! Please fill out the sign-up sheet below and your first promotional email will be sent to you within 7 business days. We take your privacy very seriously and ensure that the information you provide will be protected.
Please note: When you sign up for flag alerts, not only will you receive our timely alerts notifying you of when to fly the flag at half-staff, but also weekly e-mails from Flagandbanner.com.
These e-mails are typically sent once a week depending on the season and what sales we may have. They include our weekly sales, interesting facts and trivia about “patriotism”, and if nearing a flag holiday… a notice to fly your flag!
If the President proclaims the flag to be flown at half staff, we will send out a special announcement that looks different from the weekly e-mails letting you know when to fly the flag at half-staff.
Please type in "Residential" or "Commercial" in the space labeled below to choose your preferred type of Flag Alert:
If you need to unsubscribe from our Flag Alerts due to a change of jobs or other reason, simply scroll to the very bottom of the last email you received from us and click on the word UNSUBSCRIBE. You will be taken to a page where you can choose to remove yourself from our list.
That is the best and fastest way to get your name off our mail list.
In 1975, with only $400, I, Kerry McCoy, started Arkansas Flag and Banner. And now, what began as a series of unfortunate events has turned out to be one of the most gratifying blessings in my life. I was not good at school. I tried a little college but was unsuccessful. Undaunted, I entered Ms. Wade’s Vocational Technical school in Dallas and graduated, only to find myself in the middle of a recession and unable to find a job. When I finally managed to find employment, the only job I could get was that of selling flags. After six months in Dallas, I was homesick and ready to quit. At this point, my mother said “Why don’t you just come home to Little Rock, honey, and start your own business.”
At first I wasn’t sure. I thought about my Father. He had always worked for himself by owning small businesses, and while he was never hugely successful monetarily, he was honest and took good care of his family. So I took my Mother’s advice. I moved back to Little Rock, gave my company a name, printed business cards and began selling flags to businesses door-to-door. That was thirty years ago.
Today, Arkansas Flag and Banner is still selling business to business, but we have grown to meet the needs of our residential customers. After 9/11, we opened a retail store and more recently, we began selling on the internet at FlagandBanner.com. What was once a one woman show has now grown into a thriving global business with multiple departments and twenty-three employees. And like my Father, we are still honest and knowledgeable. We strive everyday to add the little things to a sale that will win your loyalty: A good product for a fair price, delivered on time, from people you like doing business with.
