For many, it is important to buy their American flags, flagpoles and patriotic decorations from a company that is knowledgeable about the flag industry and provides unsurpassed quality products. Here are 5 reasons Carrot-Top Industries is the expert flag company for you:
In 1980, Dwight Morris launched Carrot-Top Industries from his home as a small mail-order flag business. In 2019, the company transitioned to the next generation when Dwight's daughter, Liz Morris, became President and CEO with Dwight continuing on at Carrot-Top as Advisor to the CEO. Carrot-Top has grown to become one of the top online flag retailers in the industry, providing American-made U.S. flags and patriotic, special event and custom-made products to military institutions, service member families, government agencies, schools, businesses, and individuals across the United States. We have four decades of experience assisting and guiding customers who wish to create the finest displays of American and other flags while offering advice on the best flagpole and lighting options for your location, environment and budget. Whether you are a first-time flag/flagpole buyer or have purchased several, our buying tips can help you select the perfect flagpole display that will look great and last longer than those sold by other companies.

5. Flag Etiquette Education Is Our Mission
Here at Carrot-Top Industries, we feel it is important to educate our customers about the best way to handle the American flag. We provide flag etiquette information on our website about how to Display Your Flag, Flag Code, How To Fold Your Flag, a list of Flag-Flying Holidays and the rules around Flying Your Flag At Half-Staff. We even offer the service of Email Notification and social media posts to notify you when your flag must be flown at half-staff. In 2019, we extended our educational outreach to elementary and middle school students by providing Free Educational Resources about Flag Etiquette, the United States of America and the individual states, starting with North Carolina and Virginia. Our plan is to eventually have educational resources about all 50 states to help students learn about each state’s flag, state counties and unique state facts. Teachers can output these free resource pages to use as student handouts or to decorate the classroom. These resources have been especially helpful during the COVID-19 pandemic since teachers, parents and students were looking for additional educational tools to help with homeschooling while sheltering at home.
As you can see, Carrot-Top Industries’ mission is to honor the American spirit by providing American-made products that build and promote patriotic, corporate and individual pride. We aim to help our customers enhance permanent facilities and the unique events that bring their communities together. Carrot-Top is a customer-first organization. We promise to build strong relationships by catering to our customers’ needs rather than our bottom line.
