Former U.S. Army Green Beret Kyle Daniels has developed an American flag designed to thwart those who try to burn it during the violent, anti-America protests taking place across the country.
When Kyle returned from his final tour of duty, he was dismayed by the latest bout of flag-burning, so he spent the next two years researching and developing a first-of-its kind flag tough enough to withstand protesters’ attempts to burn it.
On Flag Day 2020, June 14, a veteran-owned company founded by Kyle, Firebrand Flags, introduced its 100% fire-retardant flag. Made from kevlar and nomex, the same fabrics worn by servicemembers and first responders, the flag will not burn, the company’s website says:
“On Sunday, June 14 – Flag Day 2020, after two years of research and hundreds of prototypes, the Firebrand Flag Company launched its first product: Old Glory – first-of-its-kind, official, fire-retardant U.S. Flag made in America from the same kevlar and nomex fabric that keeps our service members and first responders safe.”
In an interview with KFTK-FM radio, Kyle explains how and why he founded Firebrand Flags. He tells Host Annie Frey that his biggest problem so far has been a good one: keeping up with the demand for his unique rendition of Old Glory.
