The National Day of the Cowboy flag was created to honor Cowboys and Cowgirls in parades, at cowboy gatherings, at ranches, rodeos, and Western events. The official flag is red, white, and blue; silk-screened nylon and measures 3 feet by 5 feet. It bears the logo of the NDOC and our slogan, which is “Preserve the Heritage.”. Made in the USA.
The Cowboy flag flies in twenty-nine states and four countries, including having flown in Iraq and Afghanistan with our Desert Cowboys. In May, 2008, the National Day of the Cowboy flag was taken to the International Space Station aboard the Discovery Space Shuttle by NASA Commander, Mark Kelly. It traveled over five million miles before returning to Earth on Flag Day, June 14, 2008.NASA Commander Mark Kelly
