Millions Of Americans May Wave American Flags Made In China

Posted: Updated:

On Independence Day, many Americans will wave American flags that were imported from China.

According to the US Census bureau, $3.6 million worth of imported US flags last year came from China. That's 94% of all imported flags.

Although American flag manufacturers still make up the bulk of all flags made ($300 million worth in 2007), American manufacturers see an upward trend in the number of Chinese products coming to the American market, including flags.

Currently, the US law requires flags purchased by the federal government to be made of at least 50 percent American materials.
