Working together with you to preserve our national heritage for the next generation of Americans.


National Flag Foundation's mission is to promote a deeper appreciation of our nation's founding principles and its first and principle emblem, the Flag of the United States of America, by serving as a primary resource for patriotic and flag education. Since 1968, we've built upon this one simple yet vitally important premise. We've done more to amplify the message and the meaning of the flag than perhaps any organization in history.
