The flags can be displayed in the flying mode or engraved in different shapes, such as hearts, rectangles or ovals, various animals and birds. These are associated with the spirit and representing the national symbol of the country. The ‘Great American Bald Eagle’ or ‘The Heart of America’ symbolizes American pride. Other flag pins include the republican or democratic symbols, in the forms of animals and birds or any other geometrical or popular shape, to display and promote patriotism.
Flag pins are made of different materials, such as gold or silver plated metals, crystals, rhinestones, cold metallic enamel, white metal, lacquer and white metal. These pins are often hand painted and display the colors of the flag. They accentuate the glitter of the crystal or the rhinestones used. Sparkles are also added at times, to lend an extra shine.
