Help Raise Awareness through a Beautiful Flag

October 01, 2014 1 min read

Since the 80s and 90s, the United States has observed the month of October as Breast Cancer Awareness month. The pink ribbon was established as a symbol of breast cancer awareness in the early 90s by Evelyn Lauder, the founder of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Over recent years, other big organizations have joined in to help celebrate the awareness and bring in funds for research of treatments for breast cancer. Many walks have been organized, recognizing survivors and those lost the battle to the disease. As well as raising awareness, they fundraising to further research for treatments.

The support has recently grown to male advocates, most notably the NFL. During the month of October, the NFL incorporates pink into the games on and off the field. The color pink draws a contrasting attention from the football game and is a constant reminder of the meaning behind the symbolic color. Breast cancer not only affects women, so, the third week of October is Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week.

Federal Flags Quality And Service

Having ordered a 20' Flagpole and Flags, I have recived quality products and Great service from Federal Flag. My furture purchase of any product that Federal Flags sells, will be made with them.

Amazing Product and company

Awesome gorgeous sturdy flagpole. We got the bronze. Federal Flags sent detailed instructions and communicated throughout the process. It took my husband and I about a week to dig the hole and put the rock, sand and cement in. We had never tried something like this and was a little more time consuming than we initially thought, but we are both elderly so it took us a little longer.

We got it mostly straight!! LOL. My husband cut the rope too short and is fiddling around with it trying to get it lined up. So, lesson is: before you cut the rope, run the flag up the pole first and see where your hooks are, get it lined up and then cut it. He had to keep moving the swivel hooks so he had enough rope on one side. Very important since it is 15' tall and we don't have a ladder that tall if we have to restring it.

The hooks and hardware are nice and sturdy-no plastic. This should last a long time.

Quality product!

Great product

Received flag pole and flag in a timely manner. Upon inspection everything looks great. Have had to put it in proper storage due to other issues here but so far I think it’s going to be a wonderful addition to our church grounds.

Marine flag

Great flag,well made my Brother loved it...

Good but not great

Well made, easily installed, lights up flag nicely from dusk to dawn as long as the sun shines during the day. Here in the northeast we have many cloudy days and light only works for part of the night.
