The Germanna Foundation is offering a special, limited opportunity for you to own and fly the official Germanna flag.
When you purchase a new, 5′ x 8′ Germanna flag, we will fly it over the Fort Germanna Visitor Center campus for a day.
Your flag will fly proudly over the land where your German ancestors first came to live in America, in Fort Germanna, over 300 years ago.
These colonists left familiar surroundings in Europe to start a new life on the edge of the colonial American frontier in the 1700s.
Over three centuries later, tens of thousands of people across the United States and the world share this common ancestry with these colonists who braved a wonderous new world.
Having this special flag that flew over where your Germanna ancestors started out life in America is a special keepsake to pass down to your descendants.
After we fly the flag, we will send it to you along with a beautiful certificate of authenticity that is suitable for framing.
The outdoor SolarMax nylon flag with long lasting UV protection has two brass grommets to attach to a flag pole. It is made in the USA. See the flag in the above photo for what it looks like.
Your purchase of this special flag for $300 helps support the mission and work of the Germanna Foundation, including its stewardship over the historical Fort Germanna archaeology site.
World-renowned chief Jamestown archaeologist (and Germanna Foundation Trustee) William Kelso has said, “I have always thought the Fort Germanna/Enchanted Castle site ranks among the most significant historical archaeological sites certainly in Virginia and arguably in the nation. The establishment of both Jamestown and Germanna forts were historically pivotal.”
Your ancestors were an important part of that history—and thus so are you!
