The Flats Nation - International Flag Series!

Even though we have our own Flats Nation Flag (see below) that you can order and have placed on some cool Swag and Merch by clicking Here

Like the Cups that have become popular!


We have been working on variants of our Flag designs for our Fans and Supporters in other Country's that Flats Fishing is well known and many times, a targeted travel destination so they (also) can Rep both Flats Nation, and their own National Pride at the same time. ๐Ÿ˜Ž


And if you don't think that the National Pride aspect is important, then you have clearly never watched a FIFA World Cup Match for sure!

Which reminds me of the funny yet simply brilliant, marketing campaign that KIA produced for the 2014 World Cup to help explain "Futbol" to those in the USA much less here in Florida (Go Gators!) that have Football even though, it (we) pass it a lot more than it is ever kicked! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Maybe it is time to rename our version to Passball? See if you agree by watching all three of them below ๐Ÿ˜‰


So, along these same lines for the huge amount of Flats Fishing Fans Worldwide, we have started an entire series of Flats Nation themed flag designs for the World Cup of Flats Fishing (which we really need to start an online Tournament program just for such) that you can like, and order some Merch and Swag using them! ๐Ÿ˜Ž


Oh, and this is just the beginning Sports Fans... We will have some actual Flags, Hats and Stickers based on each design for you to also order here very soon!

Here are the ones we have in alphabetical order and all you need to land some cool stuff based on each one, is click on each flag picture or denoted link to get some for yourself!


Bahamas

And a big shout out to Captain (Brother) Travis Sands that helped us pick out the final selection from the proofs I sent him.

Belize

Like the National Flag of Mexico needed a few more design tweaks to make it flow (pop) but we think it turned out artistically well. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Cuba

Our Fly Fishing Manager here on Flats Nation (Brother Christian) worked with me on this one that we feel turned out well! You can click Here to review and order some awesome items based upon it.


And so much so, we made a special edition one just for Brother Christian with his logo on it and (we feel) it is just Awesome and Definitely goes with the Miami Vibe that we all love! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Guadeloupe

Thanks to our friend Ethan who loves to Fly Fish and ties Flies (some great work by the way) on this chain of Islands. He exposed us to the great Flats Fishing they have there, and helped us with the design of this one for us here on Flats Nation! And for those not familiar with Guadeloupe it's history or location just click Here And we have reached out to some guides there to help us bring some more exposure to the great looking Fishing and Ecosystem they have! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Honduras

All one has to say is the word Roatan and that is pretty much all that is needed to picture beautiful flats with Bonefish and Permit as well as Snook and Tarpon running around. And, one would be pressed to find a more beautiful place to fish in than Mango Creek Lodge and make a few casts right from the back door! So, when visiting Honduras (or just wishing you were) we now have some Swag and Merch to help you fit in and to go with that Mango Margarita ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mexico

The beauty of the National Flag of Mexico with its Eagle (Crested Caracara) of which we also have some in Florida. Is just a stunning bird to see in the wild, presented some design challenges for sure! At one point which I was not real happy about both artistically and historically, and had actually removed the Eagle for a period of time while working on the design... But, with the help of a good friend of Flats Nation in Mexico, Gerardo Diliegros of Snook Fly Mexico.


After exchanging several proofs, design changes and ideas this one we (thanks again Brother) came out on top and think it is just awesome! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Nicaragua

Worked on this one with Captain (Brother) Jason Moore who goes there quite often to pick fights with some of those Huge Jungle Tarpon that they have! Thus, it was really only fitting that our Flats Nation Tarpon Logo land on this one! ๐Ÿ˜

Puerto Rico

Our Brother in Arms down in Puerto Rico (David Rivera) who is working with us on some other important projects that will be online quickly. He was a big help in getting this one created and tweaked from proofs I sent to him for review and selection. Thanks again Dave, and Welcome Aboard Flats Nation Brother!

Venezuela

Maybe not your first place to think about as a Flats Fishing destination, but don't be fooled! They have some pristine waters there and a shout out to Ramon Paz at FFLR in Venezuela, for the help with this one that is now ready to add to our collection ๐Ÿ˜Ž

You can click Here to review and order some cool things based upon this one!



We thank you for your orders (enjoy and do share) and send us some pictures of you wearing and / or using them no matter what parts of the "Flats Nation" you are located!


We will have more flags of other Great Countries that have just some awesome Flats Fishing destinations on the way, as the design process for some of them is just not an easy artistic task at all ๐Ÿ˜‰


Basically, If the Flats Fishing is awesome there, we are planting a special "Flats Nation" style Flag design for all our Fans and Friends to wear and enjoy! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

And don't forget the right tunes to help you get in the proper frame of mind and not to be held responsible, if you find yourself looping this one over and over again... ๐Ÿ˜Ž
