    Shame about the condition but that is a really cool flag. I remember seeing a similar example previously, but sorry as I can't remember where or to which unit it was. Post WWII going by the shape of the tank and it's gun with the muzzle brake, probably Vietnam period I think.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Likely 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment.

    M Troop ( Mad Dog) - Recon

    The shape of the tank reminds me of an M48 Patton, which was used from 1953 until I think the late 80s...

    Colors match 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment post WWII insignia.

    i agree and had noticed that in my search however the comment by a previous member about the muzzle brake makes me think later time period. On the other hand the material the flag is made of seems quite old
