Introduction: San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, are a professional American football team in the National Football Conference (NFC) Western division, a part of the National Football League (NFL). They currently play their home games at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. They are named after the prospectors who arrived in Northern California during the 1849 Gold Rush.
The team was founded in 1946 as part of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) which later became part of the NFL in 1949. The team first played in Kezar Stadium in San Francisco, later in Candlestick Park (1970-2013), before their final move in 2014 to Levi's Stadium. The 49ers won five Super Bowl championships between 1981 and 1995, and 2016 marks the 70th Anniversary for the team."
Note: Be aware that there are a host of manufacturer's variants of these and other fan flags being marketed for "Niner" fans. This includes garden flags, banners, and pennants.

Those that could afford season tickets to niners games at Levi's Park received special "Season Ticket Holder's" fan flags. They came in specially made wooden cases. They have become very popular on e-Bay with many rip-offs available with slightly different designs.

This flag was issued to celebrate the 49ers move to Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara during the 2014 Season. Sadly, it also marked the impending destruction of Candlestick Park by developers the next year. Somehow Kezar Stadium still survives.

These flags are sold for divided households, where one partner is a 49ers fan, and one supports another team. These examples are for fans of the Oakland Raiders and San Francisco, or fans of the San Francisco and Seattle Seahawks.
