heh im really stumped on this one and could do with a bit of help on it!! i bought this flag on ebay it just came today and ive discovered its odd size! 5x4 ft.... the ebay sellers description said:: Original WWI or WWII Flag. Double-sided heavy cotton/linen with 48 embroidered stars. Gold fringe bordering, old-style square flag design rather than rectangular. Has some mothing, but still displays great. This flag was recovered from an old VFW hall in Illinois, so it is a genuine military flag and likely had a special use at one time. now my 1st question is: what is a VFW hall?? (sorry im from england lol) the 2nd is.... the flag.... why is it such an odd size? is there any significance in its size?? why would a flag have been made to be this size rather than for example 5x3? what do you think??
