A 4th generation, family-owned and operated company, W.G.N. began over a century ago with just one flag and has grown to be one of the most respected and experienced flag and banner industry experts, both in Chicago and around the globe.
When W.G.N. founder William George Newbould purchased a flag from a street vendor in 1916, he realized he wanted to turn his love of flags into a business and set his sights on not just being a vendor but creating a flag and banner company that would offer unmatched quality, service, and selection. Today W.G.N. is one of the oldest flag companies in the U.S., but that’s not the only reason we’re a leader – we value AMERICAN MADE and have made it our mission to
purchase and produce domestically whenever possible. All our products are MADE in the USA (excluding licensed products), are crafted with high-quality materials, and have 4 rows of stitching to reinforce fly ends. In addition, our custom applique flags are produced right here on site in Chicago, Illinois.
