A very large and incredible French flag, dating from the 1930s or 1940s! This wonderful flag has the marks and wear to show for its age.
I have read that after the liberation of Paris at the end of WW2, French citizens were given these large flags to celebrate with the allies and the returning war heroes. The flags were made from sewn panels of linen in the traditional colours of blue, white and red such as this one with the flag being attached with metal tacks to this long blue wooden poles with a gold-tone metal finial. It is in good vintage condition for its age, with some colour ageing and worn and fraying fabric.
Dimensions 233cm long (pole and finial) Flag: 131cm x 115cm
Styling Tips A stunning wall hanging or decor piece or even as a prop in a cafe or shop.
