American Flags on Plastic Sticks
Don't Get Too Excited...Just yet.
We bought these for a 4th of July festival and after reading some of the reviews I prepared myself that these flags may not be ready to distribute right out of the box. They were not. The flag tips are plastic and not glued but merely pushed on to the top of the stick. The flags themselves were also not attached to the stick and free to move up and down at will. Both of these issues were quickly remedied with a small amount of glue from a glue gun. My daughter and I sat at the kitchen table, and in assembly line fasion, fixed 3 dozen of them in all of 5 minutes. Not a big deal considering the price.

I purchased these flags to give to new citizens at Naturalization Court proceedings. Proud to give these little guys away. I prefer these cloth flags to the polyester type but purchased both to make sure I had enough of each kind. No problems with tips off - every flag was ready to give away.
And was received with a smile.

These flags were purchased for a patriotic program at church for July 4th. They were perfect for the children to hold and as decorations.

Great Product and Great Service
Purchased to give away in gift bags to local nursing home and found them both a perfect size and quality for this task. The staff at Oriental Trading worked very hard to be sure the residents of the nursing home received their 4th of July flags in time to enjoy the day. Thank you for both good service and perfect product.

Lousy quality - there are better OTC alternatives
I had always ordered the cloth wooden-stick flags until OTC stopped offering them a few years ago and had to use these.
We use a bunch of them in our annual July 4th neighborhood parade.
The quality of these plastic-stick flags is horrendous. The stick easily breaks apart and the flag then falls off the stick right out of the box! Had to spend hours with a hot glue gun putting them all back together the night before July 4th!
I would recommend you order the wooden-stick flags that OTC offers instead - the extra cost is worth it! And the wooden-stick flags are made in the USA, not imported like these ones (how ironic).

Well made and not plastic material
I had been looking for small flags for my sister to put on her patients beds at the VA for the fourth and you all had them. They are really a quality flag to be the small size.

Tips come off, flags slide around
I used these for a children's church 4th of July party, for the kids to wave while we marched around playing various games. I did not read advance warning about the yellow tips; they come right off almost every single flag! I should have glued them on beforehand, as we spent a large part of the morning hunting down kids' missing tips and flags when all they were left with was the plain stick. The cloth flag itself is fine quality, and helped the kids know how to color their flag pictures.

DON'T BUY IT!
Initially I was thrilled to find that the flag was in stock and could be delivered. The desciption indicated that the flag contained a gold finial as well as it is pictured. Unfortunately, when I received the products, the finial was 'bright yellow' and the flag kept slipping down...I want to celebrate America, not mourn her! Not a product to buy unless they correct the defects. :(

Good product. The tips would fall off but were easy to put back on--could glue them on if you'd like. They looked very nice when used as decorations. I'm saving them for next year!
