The New York Giants play in the National Football Conference (NFC) East division, part of the National Football League (NFL). The team was established in 1925 and incorporated in 1929 as the "New York National League Football Company, Inc." to distinguish themselves from the Major League Baseball team of the same name; the corporate name was changed in 1937 to "New York Football Giants, Inc." Throughout their history, the Giants have won division championships 16 teams (1933, 1934, 1935, 1938, 1939, 1941, 1944, 1946, 1986, 1989, 1990, 1997, 2000, 2005, 2008, and 2011), won the conference championship 11 times (1956, 1958, 1959, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1986, 1990, 2000, 2007, and 2011), won four NFL Championships (1927, 1934, 1938, and 1956) and four Super Bowls (Super Bowl XXI in 1986, Super Bowl XXV in 1990, Super Bowl XLII in 2007, and Super Bowl XLVI in 2011), and appeared in the playoffs 32 times.

The Giants franchise is based in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and play their home games at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, which they share with the New York Jets.

Note: Be aware that there are a host of manufacturer variants of these and other fan flags being marketed for Redskins fans. This includes garden flags, banners, and pennants.

Official flags

There are two flags used by the New York Giants organization at the football games. The flags are carried on the field and used to introduce the players prior to the game, then are carried on the sidelines during the game to keep the crowd engaged and cheering.

The first of these flags features the Giants team logo (the white letters "ny") centered on a blue field.

This has become a popular design for fans of many of the NFL teams. It refers to the fans that have pledged their allegiance to their team. One design is based on the American flag, with the colors of the stripes changed to two of the teams' primary colors, as well as the field of the union, while the stars remain white, but overlaid by the team's logo. Another design shows the team's logo centered in the upper half of the flag on a field of one of the team's primary colors. A white stripe separates the logo portion of the flag from the lower one-fourth, which bears the word "ALLEGIANCE" between two stars, all in one of the team's primary colors on a field of another of the team's colors.
