Flag Display Cases for September 11

Families of military veterans receive American Flag from the United States Armed Forces upon death or retirement of the veteran.

Deer Park, NY, September 13, 2012 - Families of military veterans receive American Flag from the United States Armed Forces upon death or retirement of the veteran. If the veteran is a martyr, the flag presented carries a special significance and needs to be kept and displayed in a specially crafted burial flag display case. Every year, around 600,000 flags are presented to families of veterans belonging to Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard and Marine Corps. Flag display cases are also used to correctly display and preserve flags presented to deceased firefighters, police officers and other dignitaries for their service towards the country. Flag is also presented to retiring veterans and usually are kept in retirement flag cases. Very few people however are aware of the significance of the military flag cases. Keeping the burial or retirement flag properly folded, preserved and displayed is the least that can be done to honor the sacrifice or services of these people.

For decorated veterans, their medals and flags can be housed together in a military flag and medal display case. If you wish to house some sort of document (letter or certificate) and a photograph as a memory along with the burial flag, you can opt either for flag and document case or flag shadow box for this purpose. For retiring veterans and paramilitary forces personnel’s, a retirement flag and certificate shadow box would be more appropriate.

Flag display cases usually are made of oak, walnut, mahogany or cherry wood and come in different shapes and sizes. For instance, a funeral flag display case is triangular in shape which can accommodate a standard government issued flag which is properly folded according to the traditions. This flag case either can be placed on a pedestal or mounted on wall with special kits. Metal, brass or glass plates on the flag cases can be engraved with names, service details and remembrance messages using lasers. Depending on your requirement, you can select and order an appropriate flag case from wide array of range available with us. If you are looking for something special and would like to further customize the flag, get in touch with us and we would be glad to help you out. Honor the departed, let their sacrifices be remembered.
