    I have seen two different designs for the USMMA flag. One from the academy that one of the parent's has as their photo and the one from National Flag co. I am looking to reproduce these flags but do not know which one to choose. They both say basically the same thing but the logo in the middle is different. One is an eagle standing on a shield with gold leaves on the side and the shield is striped red & white with an anchor in the middle of the shield and the other is the same logo but with gold chains around the logo.
    Also, the cost of the flag is outrageous. Trying to find a local company that will do the flag for considerably less. Just want an idea as to which logo to use and what is the max someone is willing to spend on a 3x5 flag. I know the economy is not great right now, so I am trying to b e as frugal as possible.
    Also, if our association can have these flags produces, how many of your guys are really interested in purchasing one.
    Thanks,

    Shutterbug....you need to check with the Colorado association to see if they are producing the flags. In the past it was one of their fund raising items, and there is a non spoken agreement between the associations to not try and sell the same fund raising item, other than of course tee shirts and such..... just saying :confused:

    Not to mention that the USMMA logo (as are all of the academy logos) is copyrighted and reproduction without specific permission (a license) is prohibited.

    I asked about the copyright with the National association and they said it was not copyrighted. I have not asked Colorado. I will though. Thanks,

    Is there a link to see a picture of the flag? What size is it? I would put it in my classroom.

    We ordered one of the USMMA Academy flags this year at PW and received it last week. It is 3'x5' and the quality is top notch. The cost for the flag, as a USMMA fundraiser, was $90, which also covered shipping. It is dark blue with "United States Merchant Marine" in an arch over "Academy" over the eagle and shield logo over "Acta Non Verba" on a ribbon. The logo is as described earlier in this thread by ShutterbugC as follows: "an eagle standing on a shield with gold leaves on the side and the shield is striped red & white with an anchor in the middle of the shield" with a rope entwined on the anchor. It will look absolutely great on a classroom wall and would be terrific advertising for this gem of an academy.:thumb:

    PM me if you would like to see a photo of the flag.
