We are helping the WAR VETERANS who have proudly carried our national flag on their shoulders and put their health and lives on the line for our safety, enduring separation from their families and the stress of combat.
We are a small non-profit that accumulates not money, but volunteer hours. And we have the strength to help even those soldiers who have not been deployed. We don't turn away police officers, firefighters, customs officers, and prison guards, whose deployments and problems tend to be similar.
Thank you for your service!
The traditional colours of the Bohemian lands come from the coat of arms from 1192 (it depicts a rearing lion with a double silver tail on a red field). After the establishment of independent Czechoslovakia in 1918, the country used a red and white Czech flag, which was identical to the Polish flag. After calls for the adoption of a new flag for the fledgling state, the commission chose a design by Jaroslav Kursa, the archivist of the Czechoslovak Ministry of the Interior. The flag was officially approved by the National Assembly of Czechoslovakia on 30 March 1920 and has been in continuous use ever since, with the exception of the German occupation of Czechoslovakia during the Second World War. In addition, during a brief period after the Velvet Revolution, between 1990 and 1992, the Czech part of the Czechoslovak federative state adopted the previous red and white flag. The Czech Republic kept the flag after the division of Czechoslovakia.
New wood variant
Flags made of new, unused wood without holes or cracks. They are more accurately processed and thanks to that the individual parts fit together better.
Old wood variant
Flags made of old used wood in rustic style. Cracks or nail holes are an integral part of this material.
Handmade Wooden Flags
Our handmade flags are a truly unique and original addition to the home, cottage or as an unusual gift. The rustic flags are made from burnt old or new boards using the Shou Sugi Ban method, which gives each flag an original pattern and texture to the surface of the wood.
The flags are treated with a high quality paint that resists direct sunlight with no signs of yellowing or colour degradation.
The wooden flag is designed primarily for indoors. It can also be placed outdoors, as long as the flag does not come into contact with water. It can be hung on the wall, hanging hook included with each flag along with a dowel.
What is the Shou Sugi Ban method?
We use a method called "Shou Sugi Ban" to make our flags. This method of woodworking originated in Japan and involves burning the raw soft wood until it is deeply charred. The charred wood is scraped and cleaned to remove any black charring. The result is a deep texture between the hard (dark) and soft (light) grains of the wood that enhances the natural grain of each piece of wood used in the flag.
Shou Sugi Ban hardens the wood and greatly improves its water resistance. The method was used as a cladding for traditional Japanese buildings.
