LAKE PLACID, NY (March 27, 2023)- USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS) has signed Flags for Good as an Official Supplier. 


Flags for Good is a company with an extremely honorable mission: to raise awareness of causes that move humanity in the right direction while donating a portion of each flag sale to a relevant cause, and to put more tools of change in peoples’ hands. According to founder Micheal Green, he simply started Flags for Good on a mission to create a company with incredible values that he would want to buy from. 


Flags For Good is joining efforts with USABS to provide team flags, pins, and other items, to promote and support the team.

 

"We are extremely excited to be a part of USA Bobsled/Skeleton. We're a company that is founded on the principle that people love to celebrate their unique passions and identities. To have our flags, pins, and patches in the hands of a US National Team, and being flown proudly by fans across the world, is truly an honor. Flags For Good is proud to be a part of how USA Bobsled/Skeleton fans celebrate team and country.” Green shared.


“Flags are a great way to show support for your favorite team, so it makes sense to have official USA Bobsled/Skeleton flags that fans can use when they are cheering for USA athletes. We love that Flags for Good helps to spotlight mission focused organizations and gives back as well” said Aron McGuire, CEO, USA Bobsled/Skeleton.  


When handling an American Flag, it can be important to respect the etiquette surrounding it; something Flags For Good knows a lot about.


“The flag of the United States is the tangible symbol of our nation. In turn, it should be treated with the same respect and reverence one has for the nation,” Green shared. “The U.S. Flag Code was adopted in 1942 and has some specific, often overlooked, guides on how to properly show respect when handling an American Flag. It's important to remember that the Flag Code is not punishable by law and should always be referenced in context. As a team representing the United States, the USA Bobsled Skeleton team strives to represent the United States in every way, including respecting and embodying everything our flag stands for. Flags For Good is excited to not only provide a number of United States Flags to the team and to the athletes, but also guide the team in how to best use the symbols of our nation and to represent the USA on the world stage.”


"We [Flags For Good] are proud to supply the USA BobsledSkeleton team with American flags made entirely of recycled plastic bottles. The flags the team will use are not just representing the USA, but also the ideals of reusability and making choices that better the planet as a whole."
