All of the U.S. flags sold at Knot Just Decks are proudly made in America.
We offer a wide variety of flags in our showroom, or we can custom make a flag for you. Our U.S. flags are available in two materials, nylon and polyester. Both flags have sewn stripes and embroidered stars. The nylon is a lighter weight and thinner material, while the polyester is heavier and resists fading and tearing almost twice as long as nylon. Military and state flags are also available in your choice of nylon or polyester.
Below is a list of the major U.S. flag holidays. The American flag can be displayed proudly every day of the year, but it is especially fitting to fly the flag on these particular days:

The fundamental rule of flag etiquette is to treat flags with respect and common sense. The list of flag etiquette rules is lengthy; here are a few of the main points with regard to displaying the flag:
- The U.S. flag takes precedence over all other flags when flown within the United States. It should not be flown lower than another flag nor should it be smaller than another flag flown with it.
- The U.S. flag may be flown at night, but only if it is spotlighted.
- In a public gathering, the U.S. flag should be displayed to the right of the speakers or on the wall behind them.
- When displaying the U.S. flag either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union (i.e., the star section) should be uppermost and to the flag’s own right (that is, to the observer’s left).
- When displayed In a window, the union should be to the flag’s right when viewed from outside.
