Emblem Sales achieves record flag orders in April

American Legion Emblem Sales – the nation’s largest distributor of American-made U.S. flags – had a record-breaking month in April.

Boosted by an April 2024 cover wrap of The American Legion Magazine, the nation’s most widely circulated monthly magazine for veterans, orders for U.S. flags jumped 3% over last year’s record-breaking sales month. The number of flag items sold in April alone reached 451,718, nearly half the total number of units sold for the first five months combined.

The cover wrap prominently displayed a QR code to place orders easily using a phone camera. The QR code took readers directly to the online ordering platform at Flags.Legion.org.

Emblem Sales also recorded a 7% increase in all April orders over the same month last year. Following 16,317 orders in April, Emblem Sales stood at 4% higher for the first five months of 2024, compared to 2023.
