IOWA Deck Flag Box
Make quite a conversation with these Burmese Teak and Douglas Fir business flag boxes which are made out of the actual decking removed from the USS Iowa battleship. Our ship volunteers painstakingly attempt to preserve the patina, caulk and deck plug to retain the history, character and uniqueness of the deck wood. The Iowa’s deck wood is unique in color and character as it has been weathered outdoors with decades in wet and dry conditions. The dark areas of the wood are where the deck has oxidized in contact with steel and water ebonizing the wood creating an unusual coloration unique to a battleship. Each flag box is hand engraved identifying the origin of the piece, sealed and finished satin smooth with 7 coats of hand-rubbed polyurethane for durability.

Large flag box holds a standard 5’ X 9’ flag - not included.
