About Sand & Flag
Passionate about local traditions and local businesses
At 15-years old, Christopher Brown created the brand Sand & Flag. The venture kicked off when he collaborated with a local convienent store owner to sell his custom sticker designs at his store. In short time the stickers became a big hit. The locals loved that Christopher’s designs captured the spirt of the community and within days the stickers began appearing on cars and trucks all around town. Soon he added new designs and opened additional product lines like trucker hats, and dog collars & leashes.
A portion of Sand & Flag profits will go to support local food pantries.

- Hats & Apparel
Sand & Flag was created for the great people who live and love the water. Your favorite place may be the back of a lake boat, on a sandbar at low tide or fly fishing in a mountain stream. If it’s in the water, it’s a great place.
As a 15-year-old entrepreneur, I value local traditions and local businesses. Throughout grade school, I loved creating cool designs on my iPad. Friends and family would see my designs and said they would buy them as stickers. That’s when I realized that I might have a business! So in the Summer of 2019, I walked into a bunch of local stores and asked if they would sell my stickers, they all said yes.
Established during the pandemic of 2020, Sand & Flag’s design inspiration is derived from the beauty and history surrounding my home in the North Shore of Massachusetts. Having pride in the local community and supporting local causes is paramount. A portion of Sand & Flag profits will go to support local food pantries.
Christopher is passionate about local traditions and local businesses.
The line of Sand & Flag products can be purchased at over a dozen retail stores as well as from the Sand & Flag website. Christopher has built relationships with many local merchants and is the youngest member of the Newburyport Chamber of Commerce. He can often be seen at his Sand & Flag booth at many local events throughout the year.
Christopher values community and family above all. He has demonstrated this through his support of the First Parish Newbury Food Pantry. Aside from his hands on volunteerism at the pantry, Christopher also designed the Pantry logo and helped to facilitate several key donations from his school community. Christopher has made a commitment that Sand & Flag will donate a portion of all sales to the food pantry. To date, over four thousand dollars has been given.
