Why We're Here
Grand New Flag was founded first and foremost to honor the memory of my father, Arnold J. Kauppinen. He served 2 combat tours in Vietnam (1966-68), in the Army's 196th Light Infantry Brigade. He will forever by my Hero. His sacrifice along with all those who have served is honored in 2 ways whenever we sell a patriotic flag, custom flag, flagpole, or any other product.
The 5% for Vets Fund is my promise to give back 5% of net profits each year to a non-profit organization that helps Veterans of the United States Armed Forces. In 2019 we officially adopted Dog Tags New York as our permanent non-profit of choice to give back to annually. We wholeheartedly support their mission to unite rescue dogs with Veterans in need of an emotional support dog.

Our secondary mission at Grand New Flag is to support the American Manufacturer. All our items are Made in the U.S.A. We have painstakingly curated our American Made product line and will never compromise that mission. Each product is hand picked by our founder, Philip Kauppinen, and tested to ensure it is a top quality product before we offer it for sale. Grand New Flag is the market place leader when it comes to our dedication to American Made flags, flagpoles, brackets, solar lights, halyard and more.
Arnold J. Kauppinen, 1946-2008
