In the heart of Oak Creek, Wisconsin sits the largest American flag factory in the United States, where five million flags are sewed and shipped annually. These American flags – which stand at our government buildings, courthouses, schools, veterans’ cemeteries and fly in our parades – are stitched by refugees and immigrants from Iraq, Afghanistan, Burma, Congo, Serbia, Mexico, Pakistan and Mongolia. The short will introduce us to the moving and surprising personal stories of these factory employees, whose patriotism and ties to their Midwestern community redefine what it is to be American.
