    Default Small British silk flag

    I found this small silk flag at an antique store for $5. I do not have much UK militatia in my collection, so purchasing it was a no-brainer. The low price made it no-risk.

    I estimate that it's about 8inches x 6inches.

    Can anyone help me identify this flag? Are flags like this known to be WWI or WWII vintage?

    Could be any period, silk is a very up market fabric, so it could even pre-date WWI. More than likely a coronation (or similar event) item.

    Hi Joe, I would agree with Pete's comments. Most likely earlier rather than later.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks, gentlemen! The antique vendor had this flag in a binder containing a tattered small Belgian flag, a small German tricolor and a US "Welcome Home, 26th Infantry Division" banner styled after a "son in the service" banner. I have a hunch that this small British flag is also WWI vintage.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
