All About Flag Cases
Flag cases are generally used to preserve and display the American Flag in
honor of a deceased military veteran, firefighter, police officer, or dignitary.
They are also used to display flags having some historical or memorable
significance. The typical memorial flag (casket flag) measures 5' x
9.5', however flag sizes do vary. Commemorative flags typically measure
3' x 5' or 4' x 6'. Flag display cases are designed to fit one size
or the other - give or take an inch or 2, so it is important
choosing your case to know the size of your flag.
Our selection of flag cases
are available in a wide variety of styles, designs,
and prices, but are all of the finest quality construction and style available.
Choices include the basic pine to the heirloom quality Queen Anne Hardwood,
Oak, Maple, Cherry, or Walnut stained, and all have glass fronts for the
clearest viewing of your keepsake. Most cases can accomodate a personalized
hand-engraved brass plate for name, date, or significant messages which we
Another consideration is where the flag case will be displayed. While
most of our cases may be mounted to a wall, some are more suitable to mantle
or table display. Larger cases, particularly those which include a
"shadowbox" or additional area to feature medals, patches, pins, or memorabilia
can weigh in at upwards of 30 pounds when filled, so caution should be taken
when wall mounting these models. FireAwards.com offers cases to suit
all of these instances. Our 1-piece constructed flag/shadowbox cases
make for much easier mounting and displaying.
Cleaning and care of your flag display case is the same as any other piece
of furniture. An occasional dusting with a clean soft cloth and an
all-purpose wood cleaner is all that is needed. The glass front can
be cleaned with any common household glass cleaner.
Whether purchasing your flag case as a gift for a friend or relative, to
display a memorial keepsake for yourself, or as a corporate patriotic tribute,
you can rest assured that FireAwards.com will provide you with the finest
selection, quality, and price.View all of our flag display and medal cases
