THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC ALABAMA STATE FLAG. IT HAS NEVER BEEN FLOWN. IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND OVER 30 YEARS OLD. IT IS MADE OF 100% COTTON BY DETTRA/BULLDOG FLAG PRODUCTS. T ARE 2 BRASS? GROMMETS ON THE HOIST SIDE FOR EASY MOUNTING ON A FLAGPOLE. DOUBLE-STITCHED ON 3 SIDES AND TRIPLE STITCHING ON THE FLOWN SIDE ALLOW FOR OUTDOOR AS WELL AS INDOOR DISPLAY. DOUBLE-STITCHING ON THE CRIMSON CROSS IS JUST A PART OF THE EXCELLENT QUALITY AND WORKMANSHIP OF THIS FINE FLAG. IS AN INTERESTING BIT OF HISTORY: "The flag of the State of Alabama shall be a crimson cross of St. Andrew on a field of white. The bars forming the cross shall be not less than six inches broad, and must extend diagonally across the flag from side to side."
A cross of St. Andrew is a diagonal cross, known in vexillology as a saltire . Because the bars must be at least six inches (15.24 cm) wide, small representations of the Alabama flag do not meet the legal definition and can not legally be considered "flags" of Alabama.******* THANKS FOR LOOKING *******
