US UNION JACK 48 STAR FLAG - MARE ISLAND FLAG 1943 No 9
Rare 48 Star WWII US Navy Union Jack NO 9 Flag - Mare Island 1943.
This listing is for a very hard to find WW2 era US Navy Canton Flag, made at Mare Island Naval Station in SanFrancisco Bay, in 1943. In excellent condition with few small holes. These flags were made in several sizes. This size is ideal for display in a home or office. A canton flag is one that shows just 1/4 of the flag usually the upper hoist quadrant, like stars on the US flag. It is used on ships and usually flown at the bow. Flag has sewn stars and is made of a wool material. Flag had 4 grommets on the hoist. Hard to find. Comes in a custom frame with a tan cloth acid free back mat. Spaced between the museum quality glass and back mat. Custom wood frame!
Flag: 36" x 24" (H x L)
Frame: 46" x 33" (H x L)
