Elmer’s Flag & Banner

about elmersOur Business was started by Elmer Reider in 1963. He believed that if you offered quality products and honest service, people would return and tell others. Making flags and banners for over 50 years, Elmer’s Flag and Banner is Portland’s largest flag store with 4,000 square feet of flags, whimsical windsocks, weather vanes, kites, flagpoles and more. This is a shopping experience, and now available to you on the web. History and tradition contrast with the newest nation’s flags and innovative modern materials.

We ship directly from our own warehouse, and usually do not use slow drop ship from vendors. Only top quality products are stocked, most made in America. Our unique relationship with our vendors assures that they deliver the best to us so that we may do the same for you. Elmer’s began making its own custom flags and banners to provide uncommon quality, faster service, and unique designs and materials. It is this quality and availability which differentiates Elmer’s Flag and Banner from others. We have added another 8,000 sq. feet of warehouse space with many flagpoles 20-40 ft. in stock! Elmer’s Flag & Banner also offers weather vanes, wind spinners, kites and other wind toys. Our kite selection will amaze you! Check us out for all of your wind related items.

The mission of Elmer’s Flag and Banner is to deliver the best product and service available. In other words, to provide excellent quality products, and honest customer service, at competitive prices.
