COVID-19 Update: Please expect significant delivery delays on some items. Let us know if you need an item by a particular date and we will do our best to get it there!
Cavalry Flags continues to strive to meet the demands of the American public despite manufacturing being shutdown for months due to COVID. Manufacturers are building inventory of US flags daily and are working very hard to fulfill all orders. We are experiencing demand above normal levels for certain Flag Lines. Please be patient.
Poly-Max 3x5 Flags, Sleeved Flags and Larger Flags 8x12 and up can take up to 4 weeks for delivery. This is due to Sewing lines being closed due to COVID, the demand is high for these flags and manufactures are having a hard time keeping up. Don't worry though if you place your order for one you will receive it, it will just take longer than normal due to this. We apologize and ask for your patience as we continue to get the flags sewn to meet demand and try and rebuild the inventory on these items.
Why the Delay? Well COVID Shutdown manufactures right before our busy season. (Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July and Veterans day) The rush on flags for Memorial Day depleted US Manufactures Inventories as they were shutdown and sewed masks verses flags as flags were deemed non-essential. Couple that with manufacturing re-opening right before 4th of July this caused a huge backlog. Demand has been very high and manufactures are struggling to keep up while trying to rebuild an inventory, so they imposed limits on number of flags we can receive in a given time which we sell more than those limits so its a revolving door of high demand flags in and out without being able to rebuild inventory. Unfortunately this will take time and we hope during the winter months when the demands are less this can happen so we can meet the demands of our busy season in 2021 and get our inventory built back up for all high demand flags. Also manufactures that supply the flag manufactures with textiles and grommets etc., were affected as well. We ask for your patience and understanding and appreciate the support. COVID has taken its toll on our families, friends and businesses and we know it has been a struggle. Trying to keep ourselves open has been a struggle. As a small business we don't have the resources big box companies do, we had to cut staff, regulate interaction between staff and move non warehouse workers homes without being able to fully have a remote working system in place. New York State has made it very hard to operate a small business during these times. We are slowly getting there and getting the technology in place and this has also caused delays in response times and packing times as well. Adapt, improvise and overcome. Our family thanks you for your continued support and we know you will love the quality and care that goes into the American Flags we sell. We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to getting back to normal operations as soon as New York State allows.--Semper Fidelis
Due to these guidelines we have also moved our office employees to work from home and have transitioned to a voicemail answering service while we find and implement a better solution. Please leave a message when you call and they will be returned in the order received.
U.S. Flag Manufacturers Spread Patriotism During COVID-19
The Flag Manufacturers Association of America asks Americans to stand united in support
of Made in the U.S.A. flags.
FMAA encourages Americas to Stay Healthy, Stay Strong &
Display their U.S. flag on Flag Day, June 14th.
June, 2020…The coronavirus pandemic has caused disruption at U.S. flag manufacturers over the past four months. The Flag Manufacturers Association of America (FMAA) held a meeting to discuss the effects of COVID-19 on the U.S. flag industry.
While the demand for U.S. flags has remained strong, many FMAA members were put on their state’s non-essential list, requiring them to close manufacturing operations. As they reopen, manufacturers and suppliers are now working hard to rebuild their inventory. FMAA members ask for their customers’ patience as they strive to sew and ship all orders as quickly as possible.
United States law requires every flag be labeled with its “country of origin.” Those designated as “Made in USA” may be true to their name, but only those bearing an FMAA Certification Seal are guaranteed authentic. Look for the FMAA Certification Seal to ensure it is truly an American made flag.
