Our Story

Everything happens for a reason. Looking back I realize that God opened many doors and provided the opportunity for me and my father to purchase Custom Flag Company. Our journey began in 1998 in the living room of my home. We quickly moved to our renovated underground headquarters (my basement). We soon outgrew that space and purchased the building we currently occupy in South Westminster, a suburb north of Denver, Colorado.

Our passion is promoting SPIRIT, old fashioned, patriotic spirit. Helping clients project their image with custom printed products and increasing visibility with flag or banner movement. That is what we do. We install flagpoles, banner poles, banners, flags. We maintain flagpoles, repair flagpoles, move flagpoles. We provide service (monthly/every other month/quarterly) to take down your flag, hang a reserve flag—clean and mend the one that was flying—and store it for the next service. That is one way to keep your flags ALWAYS looking great!

We design and print custom flags, banners, and other promotional products. We have several local and national home builder accounts, national corporate accounts, local and national municipalities, as well as create and design a single flag for a special occasion.

Our staff is amazing…take a moment to get to know them!
