And so this week we present this 6-minute video of American flags being made. This is another in the Eye Wonder series form the South Carolina Educational TV folks. It walks you through the process for printed flags and screen printed flags from printing all the way through stitching. This plant makes up to 30,000 flags a day.

The flag means so much to all of us, but when you fly it this weekend, when you see it this weekend, just remember it’s brought to you by American manufacturers.
