A cherry display case for the flag that was presented to my wife at her father's recent memorial service held at MCAS Miramar National Cemetery. The 5' 6" X 9' flag caused this case to be 19" tall X 28" wide. I added a french cleat to the back for wall hanging . To achieve the best star arrangement, I position the flag on a triangular piece of double thick corrugated cardboard, pin it to the edges of the cardboard, insert it into the case and fold the remainder of the flag as neatly as possible into the case. It's by no means a conventional flag fold but it makes for a much better display.

I really like your case. It's perfect, dignified and respectful. I've always believed that it's about the man and the flag he served.
