Jersey Number Flags
Competitive surfers in the 1960's were identified by large numbers on their jerseys. The numbers were set in a bold, slab typeface and in high-contrast black and white.
This hand-made flag uses a washed canvas with hand-screen printed numbers and a US Surfboard Championship patch. Each flag is topped with a natural twine + twill tape and stamped with Slightly Choppy branding.
Colors: Natural and Black
Size: 12" x 20", give or take...
I bought the jersey number flags as parting gifts for my neighbors and pinned them in framed shadow boxes. We lived on a numeric street and it was a unique gift that symbolized a place that was special to us all. The details in every flag are a little different so it truly feels special.
I love the care that goes into everything Scott makes. We've got a National Park (Yellowstone) flag and a Jersey Number flag, and if others didn't beat me to the punch buying his stuff up before I can get to it, we'd have more!
Love my flags!
Purchased 3 pennants and I cannot choose a favorite. Craftsmanship is so beautiful. Don't hesitate! Just buy! You'll be so happy you did.
I am so amazed by the quality and detail in these flags! While I am writing the review for the numbered flag that we purchased, I wound up buying five! I had four and then decided to get a custom flag with our last name on it when the custom listing opened up again. I am blown away. These legs are absolutely beautiful and are the focal point in our son‘s new “big boy“ room. As someone who grew up with a father who owned a local marina in my hometown on Lake Erie as well as grew up on boats, I wanted to have a nod to my nautical roots in my son’s room. These are the absolute perfect way to do that. Thank you so much for creating such gorgeous pieces. I know there is a significant tie to the surfing community with many of your flags but I had so many memories come flooding back of yacht clubs we visited when I was a child because of the look and feel of your vintage pennants/ burgees. They remind me of yacht club clubhouses with burgees proudly hanging from the rafters. Thank you again!
