Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Whenever I purchase something that turns out to be a REALLY great product, I like to share that information with others.

United Parcel Service just now delivered the vehicle window flags that I had ordered from the ROCKY MOUNTAIN FLAG COMPANY web site.

The flags I ordered were:

1 - Mississippi flag

2 - United States Army flag

3 - Gadsden ("Don't Tread On Me") flag

4 - Denmark flag

As an unexpected bonus, they also included a United States of America flag.

I already have vehicle window flags for Scotland and the Confederate States of America, but they're not nearly as good quality as the flags I just received from the Rocky Mountain Flag Company.

Indeed, the Scottish vehicle window flag is starting to fade and fray, so I wanted to order a replacement.

However, my one disappointment with the Rocky Mountain Flag Company is that they do not sell a Scotland vehicle window flag.

In fact, it's almost impossible to find any flag company in the United States of America who does market the Scotland vehicle window flag.

I no longer need my Confederate vehicle window flags, because I now live in Mississippi, where they only require a rear license plate, thus permitting me to display a Confederate flag license plate on the front of my pickup truck (just like in the Hollywood movies!).

The flags I received today from the Rocky Mountain Flag Company are unusually heavy duty, because the material is double thick, with printing on both sides of the flag.

So, those flags should be able to endure highway speeds and last a long time, in spite of changing weather conditions.

I wish I could purchase a Bonny Blue flag and a third national Confederate "bloodstained" flag for the cab windows of my pickup truck, but nobody sells those.

To me, the Bonny Blue flag is important because of its history, which predates the War Between the States, having been represented in a couple of previous rebellions, including the War for Texas Independence.

Not only that, but it avoids public controversy, because most folks who see the Bonny Blue flag have no idea what it is they're looking at, or what it represents.

I want to display the Bonny Blue flag (if I could find one) as a means of openly defying the government.

The third national Confederate"bloodstained" flag means so much because, legally, it remains the current official standard of the Confederate States of America (if it were still organized and functioning).

What most folks don't realize is that the Confederate States of America, as an independent sovereign national entity, never surrendered, but merely dissolved.

When General Robert E. Lee surrendered, he only had authority to surrender the army he commanded, not the whole country, nor even the other armies still in the field which were commanded by other generals.

That's why the war continued, even after Appomattox, with my own ancestor being among the troops who surrendered later in North Carolina.

The last Confederate general to surrender his troops was Stand Watie, the chief of the Cherokee nation in Oklahoma, for the Five Civilized Tribes were part of the Confederate Army, with their own unique version of the Confederate flag.

Anyway, I just wanted to recommend the ROCKY MOUNTAIN FLAG COMPANY web site, in case you might be interested in purchasing a flag for your own vehicle.

Having a flag flying above the window of your vehicle can be quite useful when you're in a large parking lot and can't remember where you left your vehicle.

Thank you.

NOTE: "My unpopular and controversial personal opinions do not represent my Scottish clan."

NOTICE: Unfortunately, the vehicle flags which I purchased from the ROCKY MOUNTAIN FLAG COMPANY can't be used on my 2004 Ford F-150 XLT pickup truck because the plastic flagstaffs are canted incorrectly, making the flags lean over the cab roof instead of outward from the cab roof.

UPDATE: I just received a new order of Vehicle Window Flags from the ROCKY MOUNTAIN FLAG COMPANY, and this time, ALL of the flagstaffs for each of the Vehicle Window Flags were properly canted in the right direction.

My new package of Vehicle Window Flags consisted of six (06) Confederate Army of Tennessee flags (in honor of my Confederate ancestor), two (02) Gadsden flags, a State of Utah flag, a United States Army flag, a 101st Airborne Division flag (the unit I served with during the war), and a Kingdom of Denmark flag (the homeland of my biological maternal grandparents).
