Original U.S. WWII United States Army Brigadier General's Small Wool Command Flag - 14" x 19"
Original Item: Only One Available. In the U.S. military, a "flag officer", is any officer of high enough rank to fly a flag from the location of their command. In the U.S. Army, this applies to Officers of the Brigadier General (1 Star) rank and higher. Flags such as these were often attached to the outside of tents or other locations outside, while a more ornate fringed version would be used inside.
This flag has one star, for a Brigadier General rank officer, and measures 14" x 19". It is made from red wool fabric, with cotton or linen stars sewn onto the center of both sides. One end is folded over into a header, with small pockets on either end with a leather hanging tab inside. The flag does not have any maker markings that we can see.
Condition is very good considering the age. The colors are still bright, and there is not much staining from wear. It does however have some small holes, most likely from moth, very common on wool items from WWII.
A very nice example, ready to display!
