Our Story

The Heritage Flag Company originated from a dream. In the summer of 2014, Heath Trigg of Southern Pine Woodworking was hired to construct a taproom by the founders of a local brewery. After learning that the brewery would be aging beer in barrels, Heath decided to build the tasting bar out of bourbon barrels to complement this process. As the project came to an end, Heath had a dream about crafting a matching bourbon barrel American flag as a surprise thank you gift for the Veteran owners. The first Heritage Flag was secretly placed on the wall at the brewery and revealed at their grand opening, sparking the amazing journey that would form The Heritage Flag Company.

The community responded to the flag emotionally, recognizing the quality craftsmanship, uniqueness and symbolism that made the flag so special. As the requests started to flood in, so did the incredible stories of what the American flag meant to each person—some heartbreaking, but all inspirational. The Heritage Flag exemplified the American dream.

Today, The Heritage Flag Company delivers handcrafted, made-to-order, whiskey barrel flags throughout the country. As The Heritage Flag originated as a Veteran “thank you” gift, they remain committed to supporting the individuals that inspire, sacrifice and protect others in our communities and around the world.
