    I've been working on a stand to display the Revolutionary War flags that we put up at Appleseed® Events. It's been an interesting puzzle to build. I'm happy with the concept but the execution has been more challenging than anticipated. Experience comes moments after you need it.

    If it would help, I was in Boston several years ago and did the walking tour of revolutionary war historic sites. I visited the Old North Church and picked up a really cool poster of revolutionary war and historical flags. You might want to check to see if they have a web site. I have the poster framed in our house along with a full size "Betsy Ross" flag hung on one of the walls.

    Thanks, do you have an IBN number or a manufacturer I can search? The Old North Church gift shop does have an online presence but it's 'under construction'. I'd like to do a little write up on each flag and print them out on stickers that will line the base. I told my wife that now that I have them up there I'm going to have to learn what they are :)

    Here's a site with some history behind the flags of the American Revolution. Founding Fathers.info
