Item Details

A display of flags of which two are available: The Liberian flag–the national flag of the freed-slaves-state of Liberia–and the Bacon Post 53 GAR flag (Utah. 1896-1908). Both of which date to the late 19th-early 20th century. The Liberia flag is inscribed as such in small writing in the first white stripe from the top, near the blue canton. It is made of polished cloth and measures 11 1/2″ by 17″ (see the Liberia flag page). The Bacon Post text is stenciled. It was made by (and thus stamped) Horstmann, Philadelphia, and measures 6′ by 10′.
