Acquired yesterday direct from a trunk in the attic were these four flags all rolled together.  Has anyone seen the one with the circles and red star?   I assume it is some sort of relative or son in service flag or?  Thanks.

Super fun! thanks for sharing! Never seen one with the "target" look before. Are these WWII or newer? What kind of fabric are they? I've never seen an older one, and wondered. Would love to get one one day or try and make one. :)

The "target" appears to be based on the US Army Air Service roundel: http://wwiisquadronp...USAircraft.html

The 2 and 3 star flags are WWII era, the large 1 star is WWI era and I believe the unusual 1 star is also WWI era.  There were remnants of five different people in this family having served in the military.  One was an officer in the pioneer inf.,  one in the air corps WWI era, two in the air corps WWII era and one in the navy WWII era.

The circle one is very unusual, even for one of the "non-infringing" designs. Never saw that before. Very cool!

For future reference, what are the dimensions on these, please?

 

Thanks,
