    "Procuring" or "Redistributing" is a different animal though :biggrin:

    Promise you guys aren't going to hang me from the yard arm?.... but... I have a KP flag. Its hanging in my garage that Zonker admires so much. :biggrin: Just stepped out there to snap this photo:

    I swear I can't recall where I'd obtained it. It was early on though, probably 05/06. I DO recall that I'd ordered it. The Nex wasn't in operation back then. Any 09/10 parents have one like this & recall where it came from?

    DS was presented with an Academy flag at our welcome aboard picnic. It was manufactured by the Annin flag co. I can't find it on their web site so it may be necessary to contact them directly. It might be a custom order.

    Annin makes great quality flags. They are my only choice for American flags. Bet they could do a run for a group order of the USMMA flag.

    I am checking with the school to see if the flag is a copyrighted flag, which I would imagine it is, and to see if it can be reproduced or where it can be purchased.

    Thanks,

    The tag on my flag says "Wingate". A quick search on their web site shows they no longer carry it. It had to have been a fundraiser item way back when. Its not made from quality materials hence it's retirement to the garage for UV protection. :smile:

    I don't think Government symbols can be copyrighted, but I'm just a sea lawyer :)

    Actually this isn't the Academy Flag it's a Banner with the Academy Seal... the Flag looks much more like the image in 2013parent's avatar, though the Blue is deeper/darker... There is an Academy Flag - the Color Guard Carries it along with the United States Flag, and I think the Battle Standard during/in parades.... so everyone should see it at Parent's Weekend....

    My mid 'tactically obtained' a cool DVD series I was watching, before he returned to KP.

    JM: Thanks for the pic of the flag in your garage. On a DIFFERENT topic, did you know that the phrase 'tactically obtained' is an active verb tense? :) Your dogs don't bite, do they? :yllol:

    Jasperdog, I think the same as you. Mine wasn't from official Academy resources for sure. Hate to say, but I think KP parents both new & old will have to find a new source to have one made? Hello state KP parent fund raisers? I'm on the hunt for an AF flag at the moment though.

    Zonk, those little idiots don't bite (just make tons of noise) but bring Sherby just to entertain them & all will go well. I'll have Sherby a box to sit in while the evil twins examine you. :rolleyes: Remember to bring cookies. Safety first! I lurve Sherby & some Xmas wrapping paper. Of course thats always in the oven at 350 degrees with some hot sauce.....

    Cute little itty bitty kitty committee that he is. Nom Nom.

    jamzmom: If by AF you mean Air Force Flag try EBAY... that's where I got my US Navy Flag for use on Veteran's Day....along with my US Merchant Marine Flag (Not the Academy Flag but the service flag that has the motto "In Peace and War" on it....
