About Kengla Flag Co.
Serving customers with every fiber of our being since 1951.
…including the Pope! That’s right. We’re honored to have sold flags to the National Shrine for Pope Francis' visit to Washington, DC in 2015.
From the Pope, our military & veterans, Federal, state, local government entities, small and large businesses and organizations, to your average homeowner, we are here to help make all your flag and flag-flying dreams come true.
Today, you can shop standard & custom flags, poles & ornaments, flag accessories, & more through our online shop!
In 1951, Louis R. Kengla opened the first and only brick and mortar flag shop in Washington, DC, and it remained the sole flag storefront for 70 years. Our shop was founded with one goal: to sell the highest quality flags and indoor and outdoor flag accessories. Generations later, that remains unchanged.
With us, history really does repeat itself—in a good way, of course! As does our commitment to increasing our understanding of one another through flags.
Since our founding, Kengla flags have flown for many reasons, but our commitment to working with the makers of the highest quality flags and accessories has never waivered. While we work to leverage modern technological convenience & advances, we will forever keep the mom and pop philosophy at Kengla. We are honored with how far we’ve come and look forward to where we’ll go together.
Woman-owned. Family operated to this day.
Louis R. Kengla retired in 1971. From there, his son, Robert, took over. He hired his father’s business partner's daughter, Judi Oed Sobotka, and the two led the company until 2015 when it was sold to the next generation.
Brian and Brittany Sobotka now own Kengla Flag Co. and proudly run it with their sons Jackson, Brock, and Lucas. They’re fortunate to do so with the guidance and knowledge of their predecessors. The Kengla mission is truly woven into our DNA, and we continue to raise flags and standards every day.
Kengla Flag Co. is now 100% Online
