Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company was founded in 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by William Harley and three Davidson brothers, Walter, William and Arthur. One of only two American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression, Harley prospered during World War II by producing large numbers of military-specific motorcycles for use by the Army as police, escort and courier vehicles. Harley received two Army-Navy "E” Awards, one in 1943 and the other in 1945, for excellence in war time production. After the war, the company once again produced recreational and racing bikes. This advertising flag reflects Harley-Davidson’s strong support of U.S. troops and its appreciation for the sacrifices made by those who served our nation. As a reliable supplier of military equipment, the company built a solid reputation and in doing so earned the respect and loyalty of armed forces personnel who relied on motorcycles during the war effort and potentially could become customers in civilian life.
