About Us | 1776 Flag Company
The 1776 Flag Company is owned and operated by former Army Sergeant Tim Berry. A Veteran of the Iraq War during the initial invasion of 2003, Tim served with the 3/327 Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. Over the course of the following year, the battalion would conduct over one thousand combat operations throughout Iraq, most notably Operation Tapeworm; a mission which led to the the deaths of Saddam Hussein's two sons, Uday and Qusay.
Tim and his family live in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Though well traveled; after his service in the military Tim returned home to his roots where he pursued college and worked in various professional fields.
A love for country and passion for woodworking led him to making wooden American flags. Originally making flags for personal use, Tim found the process of crafting something proudly American not only therapeutic, but fulfilling. What began as an outlet for healing PTSD started to draw interest from his community and flag requests began to come in. The 1776 Flag Company was born.
Through a continued effort to support his community, Tim continues to donate flags for charitable events and fundraisers. The passion involved in his process of flag craftsmanship is noticeable in every aspect of his creations.
