Egyptian Flags
updated: Feb 06, 2013, 5:47 PM

I'm looking for a pair of large Egyptian flags (3x5ft at least) to use as props for a shoot by Monday. My next step is to ship next day but though I'd check locally - anyone have some around?

It's not as local as you'd like, but you can call Penney Lynn's Wind Toys, 8300 Pearblossom Hwy, Littlerock, CA 93543, (661) 944-6100. They have flags from every country. We always stop when heading east from here, through Victorville. Their wind toys are great!

There is a fabulous flag store in Carp. Not sure if they have Egypt in stock, but google and find them...they may be able to make it with a few days warning. It's a neat store, sorry I cannot remember the name.

Flag Factory is a great business - my wife worked there for years sewing flags and other things, and they do stock a wide variety of flags, plus they make flags and banners to order on short notice.

If you still need an Egyption flag by Monday and want to buy locally, come to The Travel Store of Santa Barbara, est. 1984. Besides flags, also flag decals, maps and guide books on Egypt (and any other country in the World). Locals may want to visit the store that - for 29 years - has offered a window to the World. Certainly, it is a great resource to S.B. and most cities do not have travel stores anymore. Keep the spirit of travel alive at The Travel Store, 12 W. Anapamu St (Downtown) 963 4438 Open 10-6. Thank you, Santa Barbara!

Flag Factory had one, The Travel Store has two or three in stock tomorrow. Perfect.

Brendan Mackey is a local guy and he owns Emerson USA Inc., a flag company. You can find them on the web by searching for emersonusainc. They have flags of just about every country. I checked the website and they have a 3x5 Egypt flag for $47. They also make custom flags...not sure if they could crank a custom one out for you by Monday. They do offer a variety of shipping options(next day, 2-day, etc).

Call Brendan at 805-500-6995 and tell him that Chris from the pool league sent you.
