Large 1st Marine Division Hand Stitched Bullion Patch: 11" Tall! Jacket? Banner?

Hello, this came out of an estate recently. Nicely stitched and constructed, 1st Marine Division, w/ Guadalcanal Lettering. The former owner's heirs claimed that this was somehow incorporated with a regiment's colors. Possibly displayed alongside. I have never seen any of this dimension, I suppose it could be a jacket patch as well. Is anyone familiar with this size or construction of patch? If it were incorporated with Regimental colors I'm not sure how.

 

Thanks for the input!
