Be proud of this amazing country with our Heavy-duty American Flag! This 1/8″ thick steel American Flag is as tough as our nation’s Armed Forces. For your wall, gate, home or office! We designed, made and hand-finished this great sign right here in our Cartersville, Georgia shop! Hang it on any flat surface, indoors or outdoors.
This listing is for our flag with a distressed and weathered finish. It looks tough! But it’s also beautifully painted classic red, white and blue so you can hang it on a white surface to really show off the true beauty/meaning behind the American Flag!
The listed size is 22″ wide x 11.5″ tall x 1/8″ thick (11 gauge) steel.
Does Thickness Matter? YES! But it can be confusing because a lot of ads say “heavy duty,” “thick,” or “very durable,” but those are just words. Some ads will tell you it is a particular gauge, but if you are like us, these approaches make us feel like a goat looking at a watch – – pretty confused! So, in this listing we use 1/8″ thick metal. Let’s put that in a list of thicknesses using common coins:
1/8″ = .125″ = 11 Gauge = Thicker than a Quarter and a Dime Stacked on Top of Each Other (2.4% Thicker). It is 250% thicker than 18 Gauge and 60% thicker than 14 Gauge.
5/64″ = .078″ = 14 Gauge = Barely Thicker than a Nickel (1.6% thicker).
1/20″ = .05″ = 18 Gauge = Almost as Thick as a Dime (it is 6% short)
