A Complete Flag Source is a small business owned by Jim and Brenda McIntyre.  They currently employ Sarah Mason, sales, and Henry Ortiz, installation and repair. Their sons, Andrew and Nolan, lend a hand in their time off from college.

A Complete Flag source began in 1996 when Jim took an index card box of customers his brother “took care of” and a closet full of flags and began marketing a new business from his pickup truck.  Using his natural sales talents, he called on the customers and anyone who had a flagpole between home and his destination. He learned how to “farm” an area in real estate, so he did the same for a flag business.  He would pick a town in Mississippi and get to know the people who already were buying flags from someone.  Personal customer service began here.  As he sold flags, he learned the flagpole installation business from the ground up.  In 2000, his wife Brenda, retired from her long time job at Blair Batson Children’s Hospital Children’s Cancer Clinic Laboratory, and began handling the bookkeeping for the business. 

September 11, 2001 was the beginning of a new level of business for A Complete Flag Source.  Flag and flagpole sales skyrocketed and supplies depleted overnight.  Jim had taken advantage of after July 4th sales and our stock for the year was in our storage unit.  When all the “big box” stores ran out of flags, customers found A Complete Flag Source in the phone book and by September 13th we had 100 customers a day buying anything we had red white and blue.  Jim had even purchased the largest stock US flag, a 30 X 60 foot in March ’01 I hopes he could find a customer for  it.  About two week after September 11th, St. Dominic Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Jackson , called and asked “What was the largest flag  available and how soon could they get one.”  We had it!!  They bought this beautiful symbol of our country and hung it on the side of their 150 foot medical tower that stood at the intersection of Interstate 55 and Lakeland Drive – two of the busiest intersection in Mississippi. What an incredible statement it makes.  It came down several weeks later for us to repair.  They received many telephone calls inquiring about the beautiful symbol of freedom.  We had no idea what an impact this flag had on our city and state.

A Complete Flag Source was now growing and ready to find space in a location so that our customer service could include customer pick up and a showroom for shopping. Our selection of flags continued to grow.  Top of Fondren/Meadowbrook shopping area  became our new home, with room to grow.  Showroom offices with front door parking and warehouse- workshop space, made taking care of our customer a pleasure.  However, the eight years on Northview Drive, saw the flag store grow with flagpole installations spanning eight states from Florida to Iowa and customers finding not just US flags but the largest selection of decorative banners in Jackson.

In 2009 our growth sent Jim on a quest for a new location for A Complete Flag Source.  Interstate 55 frontage was our goal.  In May 2010 we moved to our new store at 5295 I-55 in the showroom of the old Holman Jaguar car dealership.  The 20 foot ceilings are a flag store dream.  We have flags hanging from the ceiling and flagpoles flying inside the store. 

The lighted showroom at night says “come visit and see what we have” to the thousands of people that travel this interstate that connects Chicago - Jackson – New Orleans.  New customers come in every day to A Complete Flag Source where we strive to give the greatest customer service and the best product available.
