BDM cloth item

Article about: Does anyone have an idea what this is please? Approx 8"x6" - I was told it was some sort of religious parade attire.

    This may be a long shot, but is there a possibility of a Croatian connection?

    Researching for possible explantions of the "BDM" in a specifically religious context, I found that the abbreviation is commonly used in Croatian for "Blažena Djevica Marija" [Blessed Virgin Mary].

    A cypher for Jesus on one panel and one for Mary on the other one would certainly make sense.

    It could be something in Latin as well, but I haven't come up with a plausible one yet.

    Seems very plausible to me!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    And as luck would have it I have a Croatian friend whose family fled post WW2. I will ask him to look into it for me. I am not sure if the same font was used across Europe though.
    Cheers,
