“If you’re looking for a cheap American Flag, you’ve come to the wrong place.” - Max Berry
When Max Berry, Wes Lyon and Katie Lyon purchased their first homes, they searched for a high-quality American flag to fly. But they all soon encountered the exact same problem; finding a high-quality American flag that was made in the USA. Purchases from Amazon and big box stores resulted in flags that quickly deteriorated, wrapped around their flagpole, and were often made overseas. If the flags they bought were made domestically, they were often mass-produced with low quality materials. After an exhaustive search for a flag worthy of our country’s colors, everything came up short. Frustrated, they decided to take matters into their own hands, launching Allegiance Flag Supply in Charleston, SC in 2018.
Their mission was to scour the country to find the highest quality materials, sewing processes and accessories made in America. The founders spent two years researching and developing the perfect way to sew the American flag. Allegiance now employs dozens of seamstresses, many of whom saw their jobs disappear as American textile manufacturing moved overseas. Max, Wes, and Katie are proud to contribute to a resurgence in American textile manufacturing.
They're a fun-loving bunch who love their country. And their friends and colleagues will tell you that’s exactly who they are. But making the American flag is serious business and a task they don’t take lightly. Every stitch. Every hem. Every thread. They’re all the most important part because they make up the whole.
