American Flag from YEScomUSA

Most of the houses in our street has flag either  attached to their porch or in the yard.  I think that has to do with the fact that most of the  residents here  are either military veterans or has  kids who served and still serving the military.  We have been planning to put up one at our front yard but the cost  hindered us in doing so.  That's why when YEScomUSA offered me to review one of their products, I was very delighted.  


Although, I really wanted  to  get one of their  patio furniture, I decided to   get the  set of flagpole and flag because I know that  my husband would love it very much and I was not wrong.  He immediately asked me what was in the package  laying in our front porch last week when he arrived from work.  I told him to open it up and see what's in it.  smiled from ear to ear when he saw that it was an American  Aluminum Telescoping Flagpole  set.  He said "That's SWEET!"

It came with a flag (photo above) too but we bought us a different kinds as  the ones included in the set was very thin and we wanted a heavy duty one.  Our son asked if he could have the flag and we gave it to him.  He hanged it in his bedroom.

This is what we spent our weekend with, setting up our very own Flag in front of our home.  One of our  great neighbor, a Korean War Veteran, helped us, thanks Don!  We let our son took ownership of the flag, he was very proud  of it and was so eager in helping.



Here are the features of the American Aluminum Telscoping Flagpole set.
  • 3" diameter Gold Ball
  • 5 sections NOT Rust Aluminum Flag Pole
  • Easy to set up in minutes with the rotating locks between adjacent sections
  • 4 rotating wind-directed steel brackets
  • Can fly 2 Flags at the same time
  • 1st Section Brackets can hold up to 3' Flag
  • 2nd Section Brackets can hold up to 3' Flag
  • 2 1/3" Pole diameter
  • 16" PVC Sleeve for ground
  • 18" diameter x 16" height concrete required to secure into ground (Concrete not Included)

The package Includes:

  • 1x 20' Flag Pole with Gold Ball
  • 1x 3' x 5' American National Flag
  • 1x PVC Sleeve
  • 1x Instruction
We waited a day before  we  install the pole to give the concrete to dry and harden up.

Here is Navy Veteran standing proudly  at our new Flag.


The flagpole set's retail value is $129.99 from other store but if you buy  it at YEScomUSA, it only cost $69.99, a big savings of 46%.  So if you are planning to get one, check them out first.

I dressed it up a little with some bricks and rocks and  potted  miniature roses that I bought on sale at Lowe's.  The roses  normally cost $16.98 each but I got it for $2.70 each.   Thank you so much once again YEScomUSA for giving us the chance to have our own Flag for  FREE!

That photo of your son helping in setting up the flag is precious! It must be an unforgettable moment for him, too. The flag looks great infront of your house, sis!

Janeane Davis said...

It seems as if this product is an easy way for people to display a flag at their homes. It is a pretty site to see a neighbood full of waiving flags.

MikiHope said...

I love seeing the American Flag flown in front of peoples homes. In my area you can sometimes see them flying out of apartment windows as well!

Healy Harpster said...

Wow, that is what we need. We have a flag in our front porch but it wasn't really big. We have to upgrade. :)

Adin B said...

That is wonderful, mommy Rose. I love that you guys got on it and made a sturdy flagpole for the American Flag. We have ours at our old house in Kansas and we have our flag out in certain occasion. We don't have it out the whole year or if we do, we have to get a light for outside to lit the flag at night.

mhie@smarlk said...

I love having our Flag to fly on those special days! There's just something so patriotic in seeing the red white and blue against the sky!

Verns said...

awww, that's sweet... my son said, so mama they can sing Lupang Hinirang there anytime, lol. He meant US national anthem... hahahaha.

jheylo said...

I can tell that your family is very patriotic :) I see many houses here too with a flag pole in their front yard.

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

Lovely family.

I hope people in my country would do something like that as well. Very patriotic, indeed. What an inspiration!

Pinx said...

Your husband must be so proud and you are too! I do wish to hang the flag of Canada and the Philippines here in our balcony... maybe when we become citizens here... hopefully!

jheylo said...

Boys were working out and doing teamwork :D

betchai said...

Raya said...

Love it that you are so nationalistic, sis! Love those flags (I see one from your neighbor too) infront of your houses.

Tingting R. said...

It looks great in your front yard, Proud Americans!

Raya said...

You have a lovely home and neighborhood, sis! I bet your ex-Veteran FIL is very proud of that American flag standing tall infront of your house!

Adin B said...

One beautiful flag and look how happy your husband is. :) I love that a lot of our neighbors are war veterans and such. :)

papaleng said...

What's in a flag rising up high in your home. Nothing, just telling anyone that passes by your home that you are that patriotic.

Marie Imperial said...

wow! making your own flag pole. gave me an idea to do the same in my front yard too! thanks!

working mama said...

it only symbolizes that you are indeed proud of your citizenship..

Marie, shiny pearl said...

good job on the flag! Your boys seem happy and proud putting it up!

Mary Anne Vinzon said...

You were all busy and working together as a team. My uncle is also a navy but he already retired and not in service.

jennyL said...

I'm always amazed at how nationalistic Americans are. Freebies are fun!

kulasa said...

Wow! I love how you enhanced the area with flower pots and bricks. The eagerness of your son in helping is so inspiring? :)

Lainy said...

I observed most First World countries have their own flags in their homes. I don't see that in our home country but we boast of, with too much sense of pride, our nationalistic nature.

fallenrhainnes said...

Hubby is so apt and happy standing beside the flagpole and Lucky for you to have one flagpole for free and set it up in your own backyard with the kids is one.

Marie said...

Now, the area looks much better with flag there. How I wish my family can find a permanent house so I can also put a Philippine flag in my house. :)

Shela said...

All of you did work hard on that. Impressive sis :)

Adin B said...

I would love to have one at our new rented house mommy. That would be wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

April M. said...

My father-in-law is a retired soldier. he too have a flag at the front of their house.

April M. said...

I will check their store soon. Dad would probably want a new flag to replace is old one.

April M. said...

I love how everyone tried to help build your flagpole.:)

Bjorn said...

Hopefully, this marketing tactic is applied in the Philippines. In this way, more people will appreciate the Philippine flag.

Ria Cervantes said...

Beautiful sis! Simply beautiful! I love the patriotism and it's nice to show everyone how much you value and respect your country by erecting a flagpole.

riz said...

now that's what i call proud citizens. here in the philippines, i wonder if top men in the army have flags displayed in front of their houses.

real lady said...
