    It's a pre '46 Kingdom of Italy flag as you know, but it is not a battle flag. The battle ensign for the kingdom had the crown of Savoy over the shield of the same. I would say it's real and of the later period looking at the condition.

    Yeah, it was hung in the window for at least two months so thought I had better save it. Do you tink 20 was a fair price? I'm liking that pennant also, I guess off a vehicle?

    Cheers.

    Not anywhere near my field but 20 smells like a bargain

    Hi all. I'm just bumping this thread as I have lived with this flag for a while and it doesn't fit in with my collection so am looking to re- home it. Just wondering if there is any interest out there? Cheers.
