Question American flags!

This is a bit from left field but need some American flags (the type with a stick attached that people can wave) for the Centrestage, Orewa production of Hello Dolly that begins this Saturday. Have tried The Warehouse, Spotlight, Ike's Emporium in Orewa with no luck. Any suggestions anyone. If not, our props lass will have to make them .

Cheers.

$2 shop.

Otherwise, print them on to cardboard or even fabric. Good luck.

TradeMe. Search 'American Flag'. There are loads of them, hopefully one in your area you could pick up by Saturday.

Otherwise, really easy to make.

- Red, blue and white (for the stars) acrylic paint
- white material (or white card).
- Google 'American Flag' for photo to copy
- Paint in red stripes
- Paint blue square
- Cut out the right sized star shape from sponge (or use a star-shaped stencil - make one if necessary with card). So easy, then, to just stamp the white stars on with the sponge

Simple!

Edit: Oh, to wave from a stick! Thick bamboo for 'stick'? Wrap flag edge around bamboo and staple tightly and use rubber bands or tape or some such both ends of flag to prevent slide? Maybe?

Edit again: oops sorry, there aren't many listed on TradeMe after all right now, there's one for 'buy now' of $24 in Christchurch, but probably couldn't get it to you in time.

Many thanks all. Tried the $2 shop Kiwiprincess, they had All Blacks, NZ flag & the Irish flag only

I shall ring the consulate in Akl today Hokey Pokey

& if all else fails then flag-making activities will be happening today. Thanks for the top-tips Black Sheep

It's looking quite a good production, so if anyone's up this way......

After all my efforts, the boss remembered he has some US flags already but then an exec decision was taken not to use them :curse:
