Letter to the Editor: Making of State Flag

By PAUL L. YOUNG
St. George

Dear Editor,

Would the person who is over the making of our state flag of Utah please make it out of better material and better sewing. I replace three Utah flags for each time I replace our National Emblem Old Glory.

Old Glory has a wider hem or seam on the end, six-eight rows of stitches about one inch apart running up and down across the full width of the flag. This controls the unraveling. One good wind storm and I have to replace the flag.

Either produce a better flag or I will stop flying it. I replaced four State of Utah flags during April and May this year. If anyone who reads my letter is having the same problem I'm having, would you write your letter to the editor and perhaps we can get our Utah State flag upgraded.
