Harry "The Flagman" Crawford (born 1940) is a supplier and installer of flag streamers for automobile dealerships and other businesses.
Crawford was working for a highway crew when he purchased the business in 1975 from a Florida man who was retiring. Since then he has established his company The Flagman in Columbiana with an office and warehouse in Columbiana and customers all across Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi and the Florida panhandle.
Crawford typically works alone in a bucket truck, but occassionally has help from his son and grandson. He typically replaces the flags after six months or a year when they begin to fade. He is planning to retire soon and plans to sell the business.
