WWII French Regimental Flag w Battalion Designations
Very interesting French flag that I assume is a regimental flag as the three barred symbols toward the end can't, in my eyes, be anything besides battalion colors. As there are very few French flags remaining from the war (A side effect of being out of the war very early and very quickly) there is little to compare this to but the construction is absolutely typical of WWII era with type of grommets used, type of fringe and how the sewing is executed. The silver fringe is beautifully made and nicely applied. The fleur de lis and the battalion colors are all separately sewn patches. I fine no damage or repairs nor even any stains to speak of. About 60x38 inches. A rare flag and probably an extremely interesting item for someone who could decipher the battalions.
