Breast Cancer Awareness Flag Bunting
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (now known as "Susan G. Komen for the Cure") was founded in 1982 in honor of Susan Goodman Komen by her sister Nancy Goodman Brinker. Since then, the pink ribbon has become the world symbol for Breast Cancer Awareness. It was first used in 1991 when the Susan G. Komen Foundation presented these pink ribbons to the participants of a New York City race honoring breast cancer survivors. The pink ribbon was then made the official symbol for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month the following year in 1992. To this date the symbol holds strong to the cause.
Now, every October, organizations and individuals around the world support the fight against breast cancer with fund raising and awareness events to support survivors and to help those still fighting.
Breast Cancer Awareness pink flag bunting helps give a visual reminder to the significance of any Breast Cancer Awareness Event.
LGBT Rainbow Flag Bunting
LGBT, which stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender, has become a community that tries to show there is a range of sexual preferences and gender identities. This term, in use since the 1990's, has only recently become mainstream. Their acceptance by the majority of Americans have resulted in newly enacted laws that protect their rights.
Rainbow Flag has become the de facto symbol of this community and as such, Independence Bunting is proud to offer our Rainbow Pleated Fans.
Mardi Gras Flag Bunting
Mardi Gras, or "Fat Tuesday" in English, is the last day of the Carnival season as it always falls the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Mardi Gras dates back thousands of years to pagan spring and fertility rites. Many historians believe that the first American Mardi Gras took place on March 3, 1699, when the French explorers Iberville and Bienville landed in what is now Louisiana. They held a small celebration and dubbed the spot Point du Mardi Gras.
In the decades that followed, New Orleans and other French settlements began marking the holiday with street parties, masked balls and lavish dinners. When the Spanish took control of New Orleans, however, they abolished these rowdy rituals, and the bans remained in force until Louisiana became a U.S. state in 1812.
Mardi Gras in 1827, a group of students donned colorful costumes and danced through the streets of New Orleans, emulating the revelry they’d observed while visiting Paris. Ten years later, the first recorded New Orleans Mardi Gras parade took place, a tradition that continues to this day.
Louisiana is the only state in which Mardi Gras is a legal holiday. However, elaborate carnival festivities draw crowds in other parts of the United States during the Mardi Gras season as well. Independence Bunting & Flag offers Mardi Gras bunting fans, also known as Mardi Gras Flag Bunting in Green, Yellow & Purple.
