I have three flags I fly on the front of my rig.  The American flag, a POW flag and the State of NH flag.  The American and State flags are really worn out and need to be replaced. I'm able to find the American flag the size I need but can't find the state of NH flag the same size. The size I need is 18" X 26". Any one have any ideas?

What are you going to do with the old American flag?

Your local Elks lodge will take it. They do a flag retirement ceremony every year.

I purchased new flags last year from a local Army-Navy store. He had to special order the state flag from his supplier.

What about a Florida Flag? I fly one, along with a US flag, a RV forum flag and a Orlando City Lions flag. ;D

Not close enough. Flag etiquette says the state flag or any other flag which are flown along side the American flag, must not be bigger.  Thanks any way.

I'm going to dispose of it the only way by burning it.

If I could find a FL flag the size I need, then I should also be able to get a NH flag.  The American flag I have was flown on a US Submarine and I like the size of it. It's sort of compact. So I don't want to go bigger. The state flag I have now is just the right size the problem is, I don't remember where I purchased is some 25 years ago. There's got to be a supplier someplace. Even the POW flag I have is also the right size and I don't remember where I picked up that one either.

Thanks for trying Jennifer. They have the American flag the size I need but don't have the state or POW flag the same size. I need 18" X 26".  Earlier, I found a American flag the size I need and they didn't have the state or POW flags my size.  So far no one has them.

That is what I thought too - no joy on other flags - But I was hoping I just did not know what I was looking for.  It has could happen!

Rene, these guys have it in 12"x18".  Just a bit smaller than your US flag, so it might work.  I entered a chat with a salesperson and they can also do custom sizes if it comes to that.  Forgot to ask about the POW flag.

Thanks Wally but I'd like all three flags to be the same size. When I originally mounted these flags, I found them someplace but that was close to 25 years ago.
