Annin Flagmakers stitches US flag for 2012 Olympics fund-raising campaign

The U.S. Olympic Committee kicked off its 100 days to the London Olympics (July 27-August 12, 2012) with its ‘Raise our Flag’ Fundraising Campaign. Annin Flagmakers was selected to stitch the flag with the donated stitches for the fundraising campaign.

Annin Flagmakers, a family owned business since 1847 headquartered in Roseland, New Jersey, is the oldest and largest flagmaker in the United States. Annin Flagmakers distributes its products through Specialty Flag Retailers, mass market retailers and other organizations.

The Raise Our Flag Fundraising Campaign is about engaging Americans in the lives of  talented athletes and joining in their journeys as they strive to represent the country on the world’s biggest stage. The U.S. Olympic team is wholly reliant on donations from sponsors and the American public. To support the program, Annin Flagmakers is creating ‘Team Annin’ which will engage its employees, vendors, business partners, friends and family in this fundraising effort.

“The essence of the USOC campaign is that we, as Americans, are the Team behind the Team” states Mary E. Repke, Vice President of Marketing at Annin Flagmakers. “We are honored to be asked by the USOC to make the flag for this campaign and have that flag be carried in the opening ceremony by our athletes. As the proud manufacturer of the U.S. flag, we feel that the Olympic Athletes embody the spirit and core ideals of our country that are represented in our flag” states Repke.
