2 Ply Polyester
These U.S. Air Force flags are made of tough 2-ply polyester, the strongest, longest lasting flag material developed for maximum durability. 2-ply polyester U.S. Air Force flags outlast nylon Air Force flags and are an excellent choice for high wind areas.
On March 26, 1951 the United States Air Force Flag was born. It contains a coat of arms, the Air Force seal and 13 stars on a blue background. The 13 stars represent the original 13 colonies, while the colors ultramarine blue and gold are the official colors of the US Air Force. There is a grouping of three stars at the top of the flag which represent the three departments of national defense (Army, Navy and Air Force). At the bottom of the flag, there are roman numerals which indicate 1947, this represents the year the Air Force was established.
On July 28, 1947 the National Security Act became law and it created the Department of the Air Force. This act then established the United States Air Force and appointed W. Stuart Symington the first Secretary of the Air Force and Gen.Carl A. Spaatz the USAF's first Chief of Staff.
