Donate the canton/blue field of Stars with Embroidered Stars


Since our project began in 2010, we have received over 12,500 usable flags. (updated May 2017)
What is a usable flag?

A usable flag is an American made Flag, with embroidered stars that are between 1 1/2 and 2 inches across. 
It is not the size of the flag, it is the size of the embroidered Star. We appreciate any shade of blue of the canton.

We are all volunteers and it takes a lot of time to sort through donated flags. We respectfully dispose of unusable flags. We would rather use the time to create the Stars and send them out to our military.

Flags from Military funerals should be given to your local National Cemetery for display along the roads of the cemetery, or, to your local funeral home.

If you would like to contribute a flag, or flags, or just the cantons to save on postage, with embroidered Stars to our project, please mail them to:

TIP: If you have an abundance of flags to send, we recommend that you email us first, then retire the flags, remove the cantons without cutting into the blue area, and ship to the above address. This will save on shipping, and you can give the stripes to your local Veteran organization for disposal. 




Thanking those that served and are serving.
