    Hi, new to the forum here and my first post. I've had this 48 star for a while and have always wondered where it came from and can't find any other manufacturer stamps that are similar. It almost looks like the Union Pacific logo at the end. Flag measures 4'6" by 7'7"
    What do you guys think? I appreciate your help.

    "Dettras Flag Products" it does look a bit like the Union Pacific logo. Nice flag, possibly internment if the size is roughly 5 by 9 and a half.

    The logo on your flag once looked like this:

    Yep, David! That looks just about right for a Dettra Flag stencil/print!

    I wonder if Jeremy Robertson's Flag is made out of wool instead of cotton? I don't know enough about how to tell the two fabrics apart!

    It might be an older post-war 48-Star Flag because it has the re-enforcing "gussets" at the top and (presumably) bottom of the Hoist-end, and it's size, 4'6" x 7'7", indicates that it might have been an Interment Flag before caskets got bigger so that Interment Flags had to become larger (5'x9½') to cover them more completely.

    Just Me Wonderin' . . . . .
