Our History

A whole lot has changed since we first flagged off...


A triumvirate of engineering expertise, a deep interest in vexillology & friendly customer relations built over years. This plays a crucial role in driving innovation within The Flag Shop/FlagSource, allowing the companies to thrive with their legacy of producing high-quality flags while exploring new avenues in the field of flag design and manufacturing.


A significant move for The Flag Shop with the new member’s addition for Efficient Production Techniques, Technological Integration, Market Research, Sustainable Practices and Product Diversification.


Celebration for the successful completion of 25 years of manufacturing quality flags. On this occasion we introduce a new brand name FlagSource.

A new member is introduced, Nihar Shah.


The Flag Shop becomes India’s only store that sells exquisite quality flags & accessories online with the easiest payment options.


Aerial advertising is successfully launched in India for the 1st time with the Volkswagen Beetle aerial flag of size 80ft x 120ft flown across Bombay & New Delhi.

We win many prestigious awards with this achievement.


We jointly work with the US Consulate & Secret Service, in providing all the USA & Indian flags (table, car & floor pedestals) during US President Barack Obama’s November visit to India.


We become India’s only giant flag makers, making the world’s largest flag of India - 48ft x 72ft. Mr. Naveen Jindal gives us the Largest Indian Flag Appreciation Award on behalf of his foundation.


The Flag Corporation, a division of The Flag Shop is introduced to the world for exports. Our website is completely revamped with our revolutionary range of quality flags & accessories.

The IPL is the highlight of the year, opening up a new avenue of sports flags & hand flags in India amongst thousands of cricket fans.

To top it off, we are presented the Bhartiya Udyog Ratna Award.


We are presented with the National Youth Award by the National Youth Project. A decade into the business, we manage to successfully sell a little over 75,000 flags. Get press coverage from various newspapers & channels over the years.


We meet Mr. Naveen Jindal, founder of the Flag Foundation of India, who has been our mentor all along, to radically improvise on a common cause that we both strongly believed in - To motivate Indians to fly the Tiranga, especially our youth.


The Flag Shop launches new miniature flag bases in acrylic, stainless steel & brass, for single flags, cross flags & group flags.

The future finally begins to look bright as we become a full-fledged flag manufacturing enterprise.


We introduced our newest range of outdoor national flags of all countries in sizes 12” x 18”, 2ft x 3ft, 3ft x 4.5ft & 4f x 6ft which are made by appliqué & embroidery / hand sewn.

We introduce our latest range of car window flags & larger outdoor flags.


All the flags for the US President, Bill Clinton’s visit to India are proudly fostered by The Flag Shop.


The founder laments lack of awareness for quality flags in India. The Flag Shop remains a recreational/part-time business venture as it records a disappointing annual sale of only ₹35,000 ($760.00)


The Flag Shop is finally born. We were the 1st & only manufacturers of high quality flags in India. Our Kalbadevi office in Bombay had a mere 5 employees.


With endless research & numerous sleepless nights, flag manufacturing finally commenced. Only to soon learn that the majority of flags printed were all ‘rejects’ & ‘no good’.


After moving out from his ancestral property at the Sindh Cloth market in Bombay, Mr. Prashant Shah, a Bombay-born entrepreneur, desires to have a good quality Indian flag on his table at his first & newly renovated Kalbadevi office.

Having two decades of experience in the flag industry, there is yet a lot more for us to explore & a lot to soar further! Stay tuned to know what’s cookin’ at FlagSource.
