Happy Flag Day!

National Flag Day takes place every year on June 14 and is celebrated by the thousands of people who parade every year on this patriotic holiday. National Flag Day celebrates the original thirteen United States’ adoption of the American Flag on June 14, 1777, at the Second Continental Congress.

The fact is that while we Americans kick back and relax during summer, we do not cease to be patriotic. Many of our great summer activities and traditions, like Flag Day and the Fourth of July, display our pride and joy for living in this great nation.

Deck out your scooter

We encourage you to get outdoors and go to Flag Day and Fourth of July events as much as possible, even if it’s just a picnic with your kids and grandkids. If you use a scooter to get out and about, it presents a special opportunity to display your patriotism.

The Folding Safety Flag can be mounted to your scooter for safety purposes, but it can also be used as a holder for an American flag. Go to parades in full regalia with your flag flying high.

Cane Carrier

We also sell the Cane Carrier, which can be fit on the back of scooters. While it is designed to carry canes, we see no reason why it wouldn’t work to hold an American flag as well.

There are versions of the Cane Carrier for chair backs with push handles and those without push handles, so be sure to choose the one that will work best for you. Whether you carry an American flag or a cane to have when out and about, the Cane Carrier is convenient to have around.

Protect your controls while outdoors

Another great scooter accessory for parades, picnics and other outdoor celebrations is the Scooter Tiller Cover. It’s perfect for keeping the rain off of your tiller and also features a place for your hands to go in order to keep warm in the winter while simultaneously driving your scooter.

Backpacking is easier on a scooter

Many people carry backpacks to parades, and scooters make this even easier. Carry water bottles, food and midday medicines in the EZ Access Scooter Pack, which easily slips over the back of your scooter.

Going to Flag Day or Fourth of July parades or any other parades requires strength and endurance, but with a scooter and these scooter accessories, it will simply be a ride in the park.
