48 Star WWII US Navy Union Jack No. 9 Flag - Mare Island Flag 1944
If you look close to the flag, you can see in the blue section of the flag has a horizontal stitch. They used another piece of wool fabric to make the flag. The reason for this could have been due to running out of fabric and using another to finish the flag. Cool piece to own, in addition has 3 grommets.
