Oates Flag Co had the exact flags I was looking for. I took the Kentucky and Air Force flags with me on my overseas deployment. Great quality and great prices.Thanks Oates Flag Co!
From across the world, during a global pandemic, they were able to provide me with an out of cycle flag. Randomly desired an old Louisville city desk flag for my office and Greg immediately provided. Due to lag time between our two locations he was very understanding and quick to fulfill the order.
