About Us

Americapes® was founded in early 2016 with the goal of giving Americans a way to proudly display their patriotism in cape form, without violating the United States National Flag Code. Inspiration for the idea came when we noticed that many people at music festivals, sporting events, and Fourth of July parties were wearing the Flag of the United States as a cape. While cool looking, this is actually a violation of the National Flag Code § 176. Respect for flag – which states, “The flag should never be used as wearing apparel”. Because Americapes® are simply representative of the Flag of the United States and are not made from actual flags, wearing your Americape is no different than wearing your favorite American Flag swimsuit.

Although we currently only offer American Flag themed capes, we look forward to soon expanding our offering.
