Hand harvested and re-crafted from an authentic American Barn, this amazing American flag is in of  itself a piece of Americana. It was sourced to honor the fallen heroes of police officers killed in the line of duty. 

It is handcrafted from 100 year old reclaimed barnwood and consists of thirteen individual strands of red and white painted wood, fifty hand crafted stars, and a Thin Blue Line. 

The Thin Blue Line is a symbol used by law enforcement to commemorate fallen law enforcement officers and to symbolize the relationship of law enforcement in the community as the protectors of fellow civilians from criminal elements. The blue center line represents law enforcement, the top black stripe represents the public whilst the bottom represents the criminals. The symbolism is that law enforcement (the blue line) is what stands between the public and those who would choose to victimize the public. The term came into broad use after the release of the 1988 documentary film The Thin Blue Line, about the murder of a Dallas Police officer. The closing arguments included a quote describing the "thin blue line" of police that separate the public from anarchy.

These wooden flags are all made from barns from the period of the 1920’s so the wood itself is easily over 100 years old and if you allow for the growth of the forest before the wood was harvested to raise the barn, much of the wood is approaching 200 years old. The back of the flag is signed by the Craftsman for Authenticity.
