Memorial Day may be the unofficial start of summer, but the holiday has a more somber origin. Memorial Day used to be known as Decoration Day and it originated during the Civil War to remember those who had died during service. While Memorial Day honors servicemen and women who have lost their lives, Veterans Day celebrates all those who have served and are currently serving in the armed forces.

Our decorative patriotic flags and banners are made from high-quality materials and can be used indoors or outside. We offer our customers everyday low prices that work for any budget. With our efficient shipping, your order will arrive quickly.
Memorial Day used to be celebrated annually on May 30. However, on June 28, 1968, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act. The passing of the act moved four federal holidays including Memorial Day to a specified Monday to create three-day weekends, which were more convenient for businesses and schools.
