At Carrot-Top Industries, patriotism and civic pride are stitched into every fiber of our company’s mission and purpose. Our team of Customer Care Professionals live and breathe red, white and blue. In fact, nothing brings them more satisfaction than helping you celebrate and decorate for patriotic holidays like the Fourth of July. As you make your Independence Day party planning list, here are the top seven patriotic products that our customers use to make their festivities extra special:


1. Outdoor American Flags, Flagpoles and Accessories

At Carrot-Top Industries, all of our outdoor American flags are proudly made in the U.S.A. To accommodate the diverse needs of both our commercial and our residential customers, we stock American flags in a variety of sizes, from as small as 12” x 18” to as large as 30’ x 60’. In addition, our exclusive Beacon Nylon® and Patriarch Polyester® American flags offer an industry-best, six-month guarantee.


As a complement to our vast U.S. flag selection, we offer a variety of commercial flagpoles and residential flagpoles. For residential needs, we also offer the convenience of flag sets that include both an American flag and a flagpole. Our most popular residential flag sets are our:

  • Deluxe Beacon® Nylon American flag set, which features a 3’ x 5’ Beacon® Nylon American flag with a pole sleeve, a 6’ two-piece white aluminum spinning pole with a gold ball top, two plastic flag collars and an adjustable bracket holder for easy mounting and display.
  • Nylon American flag set, which features a 3’ x 5’ Beacon® Nylon American flag, a 6’ two-piece aluminum pole with a ¾” diameter and 5” matte-finish plastic eagle on top, two flag collars, a silver mounting bracket and mounting hardware.

As you prepare to celebrate patriotic holidays such as the Fourth of July, keep in mind that these holidays are an ideal time to inspect your commercial and/or residential flagpole accessories for wear and tear and to make any replacements necessary prior to enjoying your holiday festivities.


2. Patriotic Street Banners

At Carrot-Top Industries, we would suggest that Lee Greenwood said it best in his “God Bless the U.S.A.” single when he wrote and sang:

“I'm proud to be an American

Where at least I know I'm free

And I won't forget the men who died

Who gave that right to me”

One way to show American pride and honor for our troops that Greenwood sang about is to display patriotic and military branch-themed street banners, which are designed to attach to lamp posts or streetlights. Street banners have strong pole sleeves on their tops and their bottoms so that they can be easily attached with the appropriate banner hardware. Carrot-Top’s patriotic street banners are made with UV-resistant inks that are printed onto either industrial-strength vinyl or marine acrylic fabric. While the vinyl material is completely waterproof and non-porous, the acrylic fabric is breathable, water-resistant and mildew-resistant. Most of our military and patriotic street banners measure 30" wide x 60" tall, although larger sizes are available for some designs. These banners look best on a pole that is at least 18' tall and are specially designed for long-term outdoor use.


3. Patriotic Decorations

Carrot-Top’s extensive collection of patriotic decorations includes a variety of red, white and blue items that are perfect for decorating homes, parade floats, town halls, city buildings or veteran cemeteries for the Fourth of July holiday. Carrot-Top’s specially-curated patriotic décor collection includes: 

Used either individually or in combination, our patriotic décor items will help make your Fourth of July celebration unforgettable!


4. Small American Parade Flags

From Fourth of July parades to backyard barbecues, patriotic holiday events are more fun and festive when partygoers are waving mini American flags! Consider adding a sense of pride and togetherness by making mini, hand-held American flags available at your next fun Independence Day celebration.


Carrot-Top’s mini American flags are proudly made in the U.S.A., and they are available in a variety of materials, including: cotton, polyester, muslin and plastic. All mini American flags are 4” x 6” in size and are affixed to either plastic or wooden staffs that stand 10” tall. In addition, Carrot-Top offers three different product categories of mini American flags:

  • Safety-style mini American flags: ideal for children ages three or older, feature your choice of either a wooden or a plastic staff and include a ball top that helps to ensure safety during use. 
  • Traditional mini American flags: crafted from either regular or no-fray cotton, are mounted on wooden or plastic staffs with two staples and feature a 1” gilded spear topper.  
  • Economical mini American flags: feature bright colors, no seams or stitching, are attractively priced for bulk orders and are available in your choice of plastic, cotton or muslin.


In addition to proudly holding and waving our mini American flags, these small flags are ideal for staking in either the ground or flower pots to create dramatic patriotic displays for your Fourth of July celebrations.


Finally, as a complement to our mini, handheld American flags, other popular small American parade flags include the auto fender, window, and antenna American flag kits that are mentioned above. Please note that each of these car flags are not intended for use at high speeds and should only be used for car shows or parades.


5. Cemetery Flags

In addition to hosting parades and family gatherings on the Fourth of July, many Americans set aside time each Independence Day to remember and give thanks for the lives and the service of their deceased military friends and family members. Cemetery flags, also known as grave marker flags, offer a powerful visual tribute to all the veterans who have served our country.


At Carrot-Top Industries, our cemetery flags are proudly made in the U.S.A. from durable material that allows for extended use in all weather conditions. Our cemetery flags are also UV protected, which helps them to retain their rich, vibrant colors. Each cemetery flag comes with a dowel for easy, in-ground installation.


While cemetery flags create an attractive stand-alone display, many of our customers choose to pair a cemetery flag with a grave marker that is specialized for their family member or loved one’s respective branch of military, war served in or civic service.


6. Military Parade Flag Sets

As Americans, there’s something about seeing a military branch flag being carried in a parade by a service member that makes our hearts flutter with patriotism.


At Carrot-Top Industries, we offer a variety of military parade flag sets proudly made in the U.S.A. which help military service members create memorable parade moments. Our parade flag sets pair an 8’ jointed oak flagpole (the standard U.S. military size) with a 3’ x 5’ indoor military branch flag of your choosing as well as a double, white web belt that fits around the waist and the shoulders and allows a military service member to easily carry a military branch flag throughout the duration of a parade. Each 3’ x 5’ military branch flag features a pole hem and plush gold fringe, while each 8’ jointed oak flagpole includes a 9” gold spear topper. Also included in each military parade flag set is a protective storage cover, which helps keep your parade flag in pristine condition when not in use. We also offer individual parade flagpole carrying belts in poly-webbing or leather materials, single or double styles and white or black colors. Many customers also choose to purchase white parade gloves for flag-bearing parade participants, which adds a formal touch to the presentation.


7. Outdoor Military Flags

Displaying an outdoor military service branch flag is a patriotic way to show your support for both active duty and retired military service members. All of Carrot-Top’s military service branch flags are proudly made in the U.S.A. and feature the official insignia and colors of each respective military service branch. Our outdoor military branch flags are durable, single-sided and have vibrant colors. In addition, our military flags are available in your choice of either nylon or polyester fabric.


Our nylon military flags are ideal for wet weather conditions. Our 200 denier nylon flags are strong, lightweight and durable. They dry in minutes and wave effortlessly in the slightest breeze. Our nylon flags also glisten brilliantly in sunlight. Carrot-Top's nylon military flags are available in a variety of sizes that range from 12" x 18" to 6' x 10'.


Our polyester military flags are significantly stronger, thicker and more durable than our nylon military flags which make them ideal for use in coastal, mountainous and other high-wind areas. Our two-ply polyester flags have a cotton-like texture, yet are considerably stronger and more durable than cotton. Carrot-Top's polyester military flags are available in 3' x 5' and 4' x 6' sizes. If you are in a region with less severe weather, consider our nylon military branch flags.


All of Carrot-Top's outdoor military flags are finished with a strong canvas header and brass grommets allowing for easy attachment to flagpoles. Given their rugged construction, our outdoor military flags are ideal for long-term displays.
