Humphrys Flag Company

I stopped by Humphrys Flag Company located in the heart of Old City (philly) last weekend and got a few snaps of this amazing place. This location is merely their retail space and all the fabrication takes place in a 50,000 square foot facility. Originally founded in New York in 1805 making ship sails they moved to Philadelphia in 1864 for it’s naval industry boom. Fun fact: I learned that legally only 30% of an American flag is allowed to be outsourced, typically that 30% is the stars.
