Default Gamecock Flag

I'm an Iraqi war veteran (11B 4ID Baghdad '06, 1CD Nasiriyah '08-'09) and a Gamecock ('03) and one of my biggest regrets was never putting my Gamecock proud out there for everyone to see. I only had a small flag I took with me. My 1SG was very rigid when it came to certain things. We couldn't even name our vehicles (he said "that shit's for tankers"). In light of that, a Gamecock flag flying my humvee was certainly not going to happen, so I never bothered. I had my little flag in my room and that was good enough.
My cousin is also a Gamecock ('09) and an Air Force nurse currently on her first deployment to Afghanistan. She mentioned that a friend of her has a big Oregon Ducks flag in their nurse's area of the hospital and there is a stupid Clemson flag in their DFAC.
Clearly this cannot stand. She's got the same tiny Gamecock flag I had, but she wants something bigger.
Is Amazon the best place to get one? Or is there a better place around campus? My googling has only shown that they all seem to be the same price. I want the biggest Gamecock flag I can get her, to show that Duck who the baddest bird at Bagram is.

Go online and check out Garnet and Black Traditions (in the Jewelery
Warehouse) If you live in Columbia also look at Adam's Bookstore on
Assembly. ... Lots of big Banners and Flags in different Gamecock logos

And ..... Thank you for your service my man. Thank you and your brothers
in Arms.

*** Just noticed you are in Cincinatti.... Check Garnet and Black Traditions on the net.
I'm sure you'll find something that will work for you

There's some places around Columbia that have 3'x5' flags, but I don't know how big of a flag you're looking for. I'm sure Garnet and Black Traditions would have one.

Ha, me and Spurt posted the same thing.

Thanks for the help.

I'm definitely getting the American flag style one for my garnet office.
And I'll poke around there for more stuff to send to her. You guys have been a big help.

FWIW, you get free shipping if you spend over $50. At least, I think they still do that.

Also, thank you so much for you and your sister's service. What you guys and girls do does not go unnoticed. Glad I could help you.

Everything seems to top out at 3x5. I'm going to call them tomorrow and see if they have anything bigger.
I want this thing to be obnoxiously big.
I want it to be so big, the only place it can fly is under the base American flag.
