    Default Old Union Jack

    I came across this old Union Jack at the flea market today it has been sewn together and is approx 5 -2 feet in size and is constructed of what I believe to be a light weight cotton it will make a nice backdrop for a display there are no markings that I can see present anywere I just thought it should have a good home it would have been a shame to leave it there I am unshur if the Union Jack has changed much over the years was kind of hoping to date it somehow.

    No change since 1801 +/-.

    Nice old flag. Looks like a VE Day celebration flag from 1945 (wild guess).

    The "hoist" (rope side) is usually placed on the left when displayed on a wall, with the wide white band on top (as you have it).

    Cheers, Pat

    Its a Union flag not a jack, the jack had thin white lines whereas the flag had the thicker broader white stripes

    I have one of these large lightweight British flags as well. They make great display pieces. Yours looks a lot like mine and I was told that mine was Korean War era.
