Americans love to show their patriotism. We are proud, exuberant people, and from flying the flag to wearing patriotic apparel, we enjoy displaying our love of this great land. But patriotism is an individual feeling, and if you asked each American why they choose to express their patriotism, you’d get 350 million answers.
Many Americans like to show their support for our nation by wearing an American flag hat. More than just a convenient accessory that keeps the sun off your head, hats can be a great way to express feelings of support for everything from sports teams to our country.
Americans love to wear hats that support their country, but there is one thing that should be printed inside all patriotic hats: “USA”. No matter the reason for wearing one, all Americans should be wearing hats that are made by Americans, for Americans, and in America like the hats from Freedom Fatigues.
Explore some of the reasons many Americans wear patriotic hats and discover the high-quality hats that Freedom Fatigues offers for Americans who want to show their national pride.
Honor Our Country
One of the most basic reasons Americans wear flag hats is simply to honor the country they love. Our nation has stood as a beacon of freedom for the oppressed and consistently stands on the side of democracy and human rights in the international arena.
Americans are proud of the values our nation was founded on and the lengths our citizens have gone to support and defend those values.
Showing reverence and honoring our country can come in many forms from becoming active in the community to participating in the political process to wearing and flying patriotic symbols.
There is a long tradition of wearing flag hats, which combines the desire to honor our country with the practical need for head protection.
Honor Those Who Served
Millions of Americans have answered the call to defend our nation and its freedoms. The sacrifices these heroic men and women have made are dear to the hearts of many Americans, and many believe it is every citizen’s duty to honor this sacrifice.
American patriots believe in honoring our veterans and all who are serving in our military. Many wear red shirts on Fridays, like the line of R.E.D. Friday shirts from Freedom Fatigues, to remind others to always remember those currently deployed.
Even wearing a baseball cap with the original Betsy Ross style circle of stars or with the modern 50-star pattern in MultiCam colors or blacked out can be a way for Americans to personally honor the sacrifice of those who defended our freedom abroad.
Support American Values
Our nation was founded on a set of values that generations of Americans have worked hard to preserve and extend. But in the present day, our values are under attack from all sides, and many Americans seem to be forgetting what has made this country great since 1776.
Our notions of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, along with the rights enshrined in the 10 Amendments of the Bill of Rights, are the bedrock of this country. Many patriots want to let everyone know they stand for real American values, and a flag hat flying the Stars and Stripes can let everyone know the wearer is a proud American.
Support American Industry
A true patriot understands the need to support American-owned businesses, because small family-owned businesses are the engine of our nation’s economy.
Freedom Fatigues is proud to make products in the USA. We utilize American workers and materials as well as family-run and veteran-owned businesses to produce our apparel and accessories.
Wearing a patriotic hat is a way to support these family businesses, some of which have been providing patriotic Americans with hats for generations. The company Freedom Fatigues partners with to produce our flag hats is a family-owned business that has been running for decades.
Patriotism is more than just wearing a hat. Patriots want to support America and American workers whenever they purchase patriotic apparel. Wearing a hat that is a product of a fine tradition of excellence is something to be proud of, and many Americans put on their hat each day with pride in their country and its small businesses.
Freedom Fatigues Hats For Patriotic Americans
Freedom Fatigues is a different kind of patriotic apparel company. It is a company that is infused with patriotic American values. Freedom Fatigues partners with many small American businesses to produce our apparel, hats and accessories and screen prints all apparel in our warehouse just outside of Detroit, Michigan.
But Freedom Fatigues is more than just an apparel company. Our founder is an Air Force and Law Enforcement veteran who believes in supporting the heroes who have served our nation in uniform.
That’s why a portion of each sale goes to support Armed Forces and Law Enforcement non-profits. These organizations work to provide mental health care and foster community so that every veteran and first responder can have the support they need and the care they deserve. We are proud to donate a portion of our proceeds to organizations like Patriot Outdoor Hunting and Mission 22.
